Shaun Bridgmohan, Antonio Gallardo Shift Tack To Woodbine

Veteran jockeys Shaun Bridgmohan and Antonio Gallardo have both shifted their tack to Woodbine for the 2021 season, reports the Daily Racing Form, where they will be represented by agent Tom Patton. Patton formerly represented the recently-retired six-time Sovereign Award-winner Eurico Rosa da Silva.

Bridgmohan had been riding the Kentucky circuit, while Gallardo was most recently based at Presque Isle.

“I think the caliber of riders here has just shot up,” Patton told DRF. “When you’ve won as many races as Shaun, I don’t care who you are, you’re pretty good, and he’s been riding against the best. He’s been second in the Kentucky Derby, and second in Breeders’ Cup races. He’s done it all.

“Antonio has been the second-leading rider in North America twice in wins. In the last seven years, he’s been in the top six five times. I think they’re both really good riders.”

Bridgmohan began his Canadian tenure on Sunday, while Gallardo’s first mounts come on Thursday’s card.
