Announcer Mirahmadi gets clean bill of health


Monmouth Park track announcer Frank Mirahmadi, who has had two surgeries for colon cancer in the past year, aced his latest round of tests at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York, and has been pronounced cancer-free.

Scans and other tests revealed no evidence of the disease. Mirahmadi is scheduled to undergo blood tests in March and have another round of scans in a year.

“I feel good, and obviously relieved,” Mirahmadi said. “The six months of chemo was taxing, but thankfully I was able to handle the side effects and fatigue without missing any work. I have had many people praying for me, and am a big believer in the power of prayer. I hope they will continue because cancer is a vicious disease.”

With the Monmouth meet over, Mirahmadi will be returning to California to call the Golden Gate Fields meet that begins Oct. 19, the day before his 50th birthday.
