Multiple Grade One winning stake rider and Eclipse Award winner Paco Lopez has made his mark in the thoroughbred world. Born October 18, 1985 in Vera Cruz Mexico, a small town near Tierra Blanca, Mexico, where he grew up in poverty. At the age of 12 years old, he left home to work on a ranch and began riding Quarter horses. A short time later, by the time he was a teenager, Lopez was riding at the bush tracks in Mexico, where he had gone on to win over five thousand races and once won all 13 races in a single meet weekend. In 2006, Lopez came to the United States to pursue his dream of riding professionally. He began working horses at the Palm Meadows Training Center near Boynton Beach Florida the following year; and before long trainers noticed his talent. [Current News]
