Richard Mandella

Trainer Profile

Richard Mandella
Richard E. Mandella was born in Beaumont, California on 5 November 1950.

Mandella was introduced to the equestrian world at a young age, as his father was a blacksmith, and by the time he was in high school, he began breaking and training horses at a nearby ranch owned by Connie Ring, known as the Three Rings Ranch.

Realizing his passion, he worked at Farrell Jones' Riverside Ranch in California for a year after leaving school, and then moved to New York, becoming Lefty Nickerson's assistant for over a year. In 1974, he took a private position with Texan horseman Roger Braugh.

Two years later in 1976, Mandella returned to California and opened his own public stable, where almost immediately in 1977 and 1978, Bad 'n Big became his first major stakes winner, followed by Phone Trick, Dare and Go and Pleasantly Perfect, and by 2000 he had triumphed with 1447 races in total, awarding him a place in the U.S. Racing Hall of Fame in 2001.

In the 1990 Beverly Hills Handicap at Hollywood Park, Mandella became the first trainer in the history of Southern California who had two winning horses trained by him, dead-heat in a grade 1 race. Beautiful Melody and Reluctant Guest could not be separated at the wire.
