Two top jockeys reached major milestones in Saturday’s PCQHRA Breeders’ Futurity (G2) at Los Alamitos Race Course in Los Alamitos, California.
Champion jockey Cody Jensen guided Racy High Roller to win the $420,000 final for owner Abigail Kawananakoa and trainer Chris O’Dell, and in doing so stepped over the milestone of $35 million in career earnings.
Jensen has ridden 1,567 winners from 9,390 starters, and has career totals to date of $35,006,903. Twice a champion jockey and twice winner of the All American Futurity, earlier this year he rode A Revenant to win the Rainbow Futurity (G1) and Sass Me Blue to win the Mildred N. Vessels Memorial Handicap (G1). He is the sport’s No. 4 all-time leading jockey by money earned.
