Hall of Fame trainer Richard Mandella was visibly upset today when talking to the press on whether or not his car will be fit to drive tomorrow.
Earlier today his 2014 Mercedes lagged a bit when he tried to accelerate getting on to I-5 after the works at Del Mar. After some encouragement, the car finally shifted to a higher gear just in time to merge. “It was weird, I’ve never seen it that dull before,” Mandella said this evening.
With Beholder finally set to run in the Pacific Classic on August 20, because YOLO, the Hall of Famer thought his problems were behind him.
“It is probably low on transmission fluid, but who knows. We’re gonna get it scoped and checked out before I take it out on the road again. Don’t wanna drive unless it is 100%.”
Mandella plans on taking Uber until he gets it sorted out.
