Me thinks he should stay in that circuit and make more friends with the trainers. The sweet bird of youth has flown away from Patrick.
P.S. - that's the 10,000th post named 'PVal'! COngratulations!
Also saw PVal briefly at Del Mar on Sunday. As well, wondered if he was allowed on race track grounds or is his ban simply riding related.

Originator of the phrase - Curse™
He was there for the introduction of a bizarre new PEB mural in the clubhouse, in which he apparently appears--a lot of the persons depicted were there (Rudy Campas! George Taniguchi!) so maybe he got a dispensation to take part in the ceremony?
p val is not suspended he was just denied a riding lisence .. so there is no problem with being there. i sure do miss him .. im glad to see he is doing well over there I do not bet that crap circuit so i dont get to see him ride anymore...
Even if PVal could get licensed in California - which he can't - he'd have great difficulty getting good mounts. You can get away with tacking 122 as a big fish in a small pond, to an extent, but even Laffit had to get below 120 to regain a significant portion of his business.
