Gomez Excited About Louisiana Derby Day

Jockey Garrett Gomez might be sitting on the cusp of a memorable afternoon at Fair Grounds during the upcoming Louisiana Derby Day March 26, advised Ron Anderson, agent for the 2009 Eclipse Award-winning jockey on Friday morning while speaking over the phone from Southern California.

 

“We are going to ride Mission Impazible in the (Grade II) New Orleans Handicap for Todd (Pletcher, trainer),” Anderson said speaking of the Twin Creeks Racing color bearer who won last year’s Louisiana Derby, “and we’re going to ride (Five D Thoroughbreds and Wind River Stables’) Kathmanblu for Kenny McPeek in the (Grade II) Fair Grounds Oaks.

 

“We have a little bit of a situation in the (Grade II) Louisiana Derby at the moment that we’ll know more about on Monday,” said Anderson, “and we also may have a mount on a big horse in the turf race (Grade II Mervin Muniz Memorial), but we’ll know more about that on Monday, too.”

 

Gomez rode Gaillardia Racing’s Louisiana Derby-bound Wilkinson to victory in the Grade III Lecomte Stakes Jan. 22 in the first leg of Fair Grounds’ sophomore series that concludes with the $1 million Louisiana Derby.
