New Journeyman Rider Booking Business

Posted Friday, Sep 14, 2012

 

 

            Juan Eugenio Enriquez may be only 18 years old, but the newest addition to Monmouth’s jockey colony is an experienced journeyman with skills very much in demand.

            Despite arriving less than a week ago from Peru to begin his career in the United States, business for Enriquez is brisk. The rider, who recorded 164 victories including nine stakes races in his native country, has the chance to add seven more in the win column when he makes his American debut on Saturday’s card and rides another six on Sunday.

Agent Bruce Golub said that the trainers here have responded positively to Enriquez, who was the fourth leading rider at the Hippodromo de Monterrico, and are giving him the chance to ride their horses.
