JOCKEY HENRY WINS FIRST RACE BACK FROM HIATUS

Jockey Wesley Henry made his first trip to the winner's circle in his debut ride as a Golden Gate Fields jockey. On Monday afternoon, Henry guided Omache Kid to a victory in Race 1, a five and a half furlong claiming sprint. Henry also rode Jump the Tracks to a second place finish in Race 6. Isidro Tamayo trains both horses.

Henry, now in his early 40's, has ridden in races for over two decades. He was one of the top jockeys in Jamaica for a number of years and won numerous marquee races there before making a transition to America in the early and mid 2000’s. He took a break from riding in the United States from late 2015 to 2018.
