Martin Garcia, currently sixth in the Betfair Hollywood Park jockey
standings with seven victories, has parted ways with agent Jim Pegram.
Garcia will now be represented by Pegram’s son Brad.
“Brad called me about taking Martin’s book,” said Jim. “He was a
little hesitant. I told him go ahead and take him. He’s a live rider.
We’re family, that’s business.”
Jim Pegram picked up Corey Nakatani, who will be his only rider.
David Flores, who had been handled by Brad Pegram, moves over to Saul Marquez. Brad continues to represent Mike Smith.
Brian Beach, who had been taking calls for Nakatani and Victor Espinoza, now only has Espinoza.
