INGLEWOOD, Calif. - Kevin Krigger, currently second in the jockey standings at the Golden Gate Fields meeting, will ride at Santa Anita when that meeting opens on Dec. 26, according to his agent, Tom Knust.

Krigger, 27, has ridden in Southern California in the past, but has been based in northern California in recent years. Knust represented Patrick Valenzuela for the last 18 months until that 49-year-old rider announced his retirement on Dec. 9.
