James Graham announced via Twitter Saturday morning that he would be moving his tack back to the Fair Grounds from Santa Anita. A follow-up tweet reassured followers that he would fulfill his riding assignments at the southern California track on Saturday and Sunday before returning to New Orleans.
Graham said he was grateful for the opportunities he received at Santa Anita, but that his business had just not taken off the way he was hoping for. Trainers who rode Graham include James Cassidy, Sean McCarthy, and Art Sherman, among others.
Among North American jockeys, Graham was ranked 34th by earnings at the end of 2015 with a total of $5,687,324. He was also ranked 75th by wins, with 125 from 964 mounts. Graham will be represented by agent Mark Guidry at the Fair Grounds.
