Gomez to ride regularly at Monmouth


LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Garrett Gomez, the Eclipse Award-winning jockey two of the last three years, will ride regularly at Monmouth Park beginning next month, his agent, Ron Anderson, said Friday morning at Churchill Downs.

Monmouth will have a boutique meeting, featuring $1 million in purses while racing Friday through Sunday for the first two months of its meet.

"The opportunity to be involved in a historic, high-profile meet like that is exciting," Anderson said.

Gomez, who was based in California during the winter, is currently riding in Kentucky. Anderson said Gomez would remain here until mid-May, then would head East.

While at Monmouth, Gomez will "bounce back and forth to New York, too," Anderson said.
