Van Dyke to Ride in Kentucky
Drayden Van Dyke who was voted for the Eclipse Award in 2014 will ride at Keeneland and later and Churchill Downs. Van Dyke might return to California at the Del Mar for the summer meet. The 26-year-old jockey is all set to ride the spring meeting at Keeneland at Santa Anita in March. Van Dyke will ride from April 2 to 23 at the spring-summer meeting at Churchill Downs. During the Santa Clara spring meeting, he struggled as he won with six of 72 mounts. During his second race on February 15, Van Dyke used his whip in excess and that led to the suspension. Hence, he will not be riding this weekend. Van Dyke received a three-day suspension from Santa Anita stewards. Van Dyke will also ride Tizamagician in Grade 1 on March 6 for the Santa Anita Handicap.
