Victor Espinoza could resume his riding career next month after recovering from serious injuries in a training mishap at Del Mar last July 22.
“He's in Mexico right now visiting his family,” said Espinoza's agent, Brian Beach, Monday morning at Santa Anita's Clockers' Corner. “He posted a video of himself online chopping down a tree, so his neck must be feeling pretty good, to swing an ax.
“He says everything is going well, he's just working on his fitness, he wants to test ride a couple horses around the first of the year, and if things go well, he's looking at maybe the middle of January (to be back in the saddle competitively).”
