Jockeys to compete in ring instead of Del Mar racetrack

Two of Del Mar’s top jockeys — Corey Nakatani and Elvis Trujillo — are going to battle it out in the ring rather than on the track Saturday, August 30, in a highly anticipated three-round exhibition boxing match. The winner will earn jockeys’ room bragging rights as these two elite athletes trade punches to raise money for a great cause in what has been dubbed the “Battle Off the Saddle.”
The event — featuring six fights with the tussle between Nakatani and Trujillo being the fifth of the night — will begin immediately after the last race of the day at approximately 7:15 p.m. The professional main event features WBC Caribbean Champion Ruben “El Cobra” Garcia (10-0, 5 KOs) of Cancun, Mexico and battle-tested Javier “El Bravo” Gallo (21-9, 12 KOS) of Buena Park.
For information about other upcoming Ringside at Del Mar boxing series events at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and to purchase tickets to the “Battle Off the Saddle,” visit www.ringsideatdelmar.com. This special edition of Ringside at Del Mar is presented by A&T Gym, Barron Entertainment and Paco Presents.
Racing at Del Mar happens Wednesdays through Sundays, with post time for the first race on most days at 2 p.m. On Fridays, first post is at 4 p.m. There will be a special Monday racing card on Labor Day, Sept. 1. For information, call 858-755-1141 or visit www.delmarscene.com.
