Mirahmadi Resigns From Oaklawn, Will Split Announcing Duties At Santa Anita

by Paulick Report Staff
Frank Mirahmadi announced his resignation from the Oaklawn Park announcer's booth on Twitter today. The announcement comes on the heels of Trevor Denman's unexpected retirement from “The Great Race Place” in Southern California last week.

Racecalling duties during Santa Anita's winter meet will be split between Mirahmadi and Michael Wrona, the regular announcer at Golden Gate Fields. Joe Morris, SVP West Coast Operations for the Stronach Group, said: “We are extremely fortunate to have two exceptional race callers available to us in Michael Wrona, who is a member of the Stronach Group family through his years at Golden Gate Fields, and Frank Mirahmadi, who has done a great job of subbing for Trevor during the last two seasons.  While it is possible that the right candidate ultimately might indeed be Michael or Frank, we owe it to our fans to find the perfect person, whomever and wherever they may be.”
