MITCHELL DIAGNOSED WITH BRAIN TUMOR; SURGERY FRIDAY
Mike Mitchell, 64, was diagnosed Monday with a brain tumor, according to his wife Denise. With 884 victories at Betfair Hollywood Park, the trainer is second on the all-time list, 68 behind Bobby Frankel. Just last Saturday, Mitchell saddled Potesta for a game victory in the Grade II Hollywood Oaks.
“He’s at USC Medical Center right now and is scheduled for surgery tomorrow at 9 a.m.” said Denise. “Hopefully, they can remove the tumor and then run tests. We won’t know anything until after the surgery.”
