Randy Bradshaw has been replaced as Padua Stables' farm trainer by Shane Tripp, Padua general manager Nadia Sanan confirmed Monday.Bradshaw had been with Padua full-time since the summer of 2001. Sanan declined to say why the change was made.
"Randy has left and we wish him and his family all the best," Sanan said. Tripp has been a trainer in Ocala for the past 16 years after beginning his career working with the Asmussen family in Texas.
"He comes with the highest recommendations from [trainers] Billy Turner and Allen Jerkens," Sanan said. Bradshaw joined Padua after the second of two stints as an assistant trainer for D. Wayne Lukas. For several years in the 1990s he ran his own stable and conditioned such stakes winners as Artax, Petionville, and Urbane.
