Samy Camacho reached a thousand wins in the United States

The Venezuelan rider achieved three victories last Saturday at Monmouth Park

Samy Camacho had a dream day last Saturday at the Monmouth Park Racecourse in New Jersey, winning three races that allowed him to reach a thousand wins in US horse racing.

Apart from that trio of visits to the winners' enclosure, the Venezuelan jockey achieved two seconds, a third and two fifths, with which he did not drop from the board in his eight performances.

His triumphs were achieved with Tap Dance Fever in the second race; Moving Pictures in the fourth and Toned Up in the ninth. He entered the Politely Stakes, where he placed third with Gogo Shoes.

Since 2012 Samy Camacho has been performing in the United States, since 2012, in which he achieved 32 victories.

Except for 2013, when he was only in action six times without victories, his performance in North America has been very positive, because as time went by he achieved more victories than the previous year, until 2018, the peak of his professional career when he crossed the profit goal in 211 opportunities. It has been his best campaign.

In 2019, 2020 and 2021 he far exceeded 100 wins and his performance continues to be striking, to the point that he remains one of the most successful Venezuelan riders every year.

Rich Strike worked

The XNUMX-year-old son of Keen Ice in Gold Strike, by Smart Trike, winner of the Kentucky Derby with Venezuelan jockey Sonny León, worked Saturday morning at Churchill Downs Race Course, the oval where he achieved his historic victory.

The colt owned by Red TR-Racing, LLC, was breezed in 800 meters, a route he covered in 47”20, being the seventh best essay on that route, of 138 that were made that day.

Rich Strike has two wins in his campaign, but with the victory in the Kentucky Derby, he leads the list in production in the United States with $1.932.500.
