The Venezuelan jockey Ubardo Casique began his preparation to debut in the American racetracks, after completing an acceptable campaign at the La Rinconada Racecourse, where he achieved more than 50 victories.
The still apprentice jockey, who had the effective advice of Willian Guillén at the Coche oval, decided to look for new horizons in American equestrian, like some of his colleagues who have already made their debut and work with the goal of obtaining opportunities that allows them to demonstrate their capabilities on thoroughbred race horses.
Casique arrived in the United States last January and is based in Florida, where the majority of Venezuelan riders are located, and works tirelessly to seek opportunities on the ovals of Gulfstream Park, Monmouth Park and Tampa Bay.
“Welcome the Venezuelan jockey Ubardo Casique to Jockey Track, Gulfstream Park”, wrote the renowned photographer Gonzalo Antelíz, who has characterized himself by receiving the Venezuelan whips that are going to ride to the United States, on his Twitter account @AntelizJr.
Casique, 19 years old, was born in Caracas, and from a very young age, he was a constant visitor to the La Rinconada Racecourse along with his father José and due to his height and weight he decided to enter the jockey school.
