Garcia Achieves 1,000-Win Milestone
Jockey Martin Garcia, 27-year-old native of Veracruz, Mexico, scored the milestone 1,000th victory of his career Thursday when he booted home Bubba Fizz in the second race at Del Mar.
Bubba Fizz, a two-year-old gelded son of Sunriver owned by JR Riley Stables and trained by Mike Mitchell, responded gamely to Garcia’s handling in the stretch to defeat Disarm by a head in the six furlong race over Del Mar’s main track. Third choice in the wagering, Bubba Fizz paid $12.40 to win.
