Jockey Pat Valenzuela has high expectations for the upcoming Del Mar meeting.
In recent weeks, Valenzuela, 49, has ridden sparingly after taking nearly three weeks off – from May 20 to June 9 – to focus on weight issues. At the current Betfair Hollywood Park meeting, he has 2 wins from 31 mounts, with one victory aboard Acclamation in the Grade 1 Charles Whittingham Handicap on June 9.
“I'm concentrating on my weight,” Valenzuela said on Thursday. “I want to get down to 120. I'm getting ready for Del Mar. I want to have some momentum for Del Mar.”
