Hastings notes: Gryder enjoys stint in Vancouver


VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Nobody really believed owner Glen Todd last winter when he was telling everyone that Aaron Gryder was going to be his first-call rider at the 2013 Hastings meet. Gryder had recently won the Breeders’ Cup Marathon aboard Calidoscopio and Hastings seemed like one of the last places a former leading rider at Aqueduct, Hollywood Park, Churchill Downs, Arlington Park, and Golden Gate would end up.
