DOMINGUEZ RETURNS TO THE SCENE OF HIS FIRST GRADE 1 SCORE


LAUREL, MD. 10-26-12---Before Ramon Dominguez became a two-time Eclipse Award winning jockey, he was the top rider in the mid-Atlantic in search of a Grade 1 victory. Dominguez earned his first in the Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash aboard A Huevo on November 15, 2003 at Laurel Park.

“I remember it well,” Dominguez said Thursday morning from New York. “The horse was sitting back and then made a run on the outside. I was able to win the race and he won pretty handy (by 1-3/4 lengths). It was extremely exciting for me. Michael Dickinson was the trainer and he was somebody who was putting me on a lot of good horses. I was riding Tapit and Soto for him at the time.”
