Edgar Prado

Jockey Profile

Edgar Prado
Edgar S. Prado was born in Lima, Peru June 12, 1967. Prado began riding in his hometown of Peru, where he made his first win in October 1983, and soon established top rider status, before relocating to Florida in the United States as a contract rider for trainer Manny Azpurua in 1986.

He subsequently moved to Maryland, and from 1997 to 1999, he led the state to three successive victories. In 1999 he moved to New York, and seized his first NYRA riding title at the 2000 Belmont Park Fall Championship Meet with 38 wins.
Prado wasted no time in gathering up awards. He first received the Fourstardave Award for Special Achievement in 2002 and in 2003 he was the 54th recipient of the George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award.
Edgar Prado
2006 was a bumper year for awards for Prado. He was presented with the 2006 NYRA's Mike Venezia Award for "extraordinary sportsmanship and citizenship", the 2006 ESPY Award, and he received the 2006 Eclipse Award for outstanding jockey.

In 2005 and 2006, he had three Breeders' Cup wins under his belt, and his 2006 victory in the 132nd Kentucky Derby aboard Barbaro, was the biggest margin of defeat since 1946.

Needless to say, in 2008, he was justly inducted into the National Museum of Racing Hall of Fame, and is firmly regarded as one of the top jockeys riding in America today. He also recorded his 6000th winner in 2008 at Gulfstream Park (he won his 5000th at that track as well), and is one of only 16 jockeys in the USA to do so.
