Santa Anita: PVal off mounts

Email

Jockey Patrick Valenzuela has taken off his mounts following Sunday's second race.

Valenzuela's place in the third race on Kahlua Mist has been taken by Rafael Bejarano.

Valenzuela pulled up his mount, Run Candy Run, on the turn of the starter allowance on turf after the horse appeared to take an odd step.

Valenzuela, third in the jockey's standings at this meeting, had a noticeable limp, while walking back to the jockey's room and did not ride the second race.
