Trainer Jorge Navarro will not have to worry about where he is going to race this winter. Tim Ritvo, the chief operating officer of The Stronach Group, reports that the trainer has been cleared to race at Gulfstream and all tracks owned by the Stronach team.
Navarro’s status at Gulfstream was, at least for a time, uncertain because he was temporarily banned from racing at Laurel, another Stronach track. Navarro was the second leading trainer at last year’s “Championship Meet” at Gulfstream. With 40 winners, he trailed only Todd Pletcher, who had 58.
