Jockey World Radio - Host Frankie Lovato and co-host Torrie Needham are joined this week by multiple award-winning and soon-to-be Hall of Fame jockey, John Velazquez! Velazquez has won over 4,800 races and led the nation in earnings in both 2004 and 2005. His first Kentucky Derby win came last year on Animal Kingdom and this year Velazquez captured his second Belmont Stakes aboard Union Rags. He also has 8 total Breeders' Cup victories on a resume that spans over 2 decades in the saddle.
