Three of horse racing’s most successful jockeys, including G.R. Carter Jr., will be guest instructors during this evening, May 27, Night School, a free online handicapping educational class.

Tonight’s Night School focuses on jockeys, riding winners and winning angles.

Access the Night School website.

Carter on May 23 became American Quarter Horse racing’s all-time leading jockey by races won, with 3,632. He is already the sport’s leading rider by money earned (with more than $65 million) and by horses ridden (more than 22,900 starters).

Carter, a native of Pawhuska, Oklahoma, began riding in 1984. He is ten-times the AQHA champion jockey, and currently serves as the Vice Chairman of the Jockey’s Guild Board of Directors. Carter was the recipient of the 2013 Sam Thompson Memorial Jockey Award, an award voted on by fellow jockeys and bestowed on a recipient whose personal character on and off the racetrack reflects positively on Quarter Horse racing.

Carter will be joined by two Thoroughbred jockeys, retired Hall of Famer and NBC analyst Jerry Bailey and active rider Shaun Bridgmohan, who is set to pilot Commanding Curve (TB) in the June 7 Belmont Stakes against Triple Crown contender California Chrome (TB).
