Arlington Million

Robby Albarado

Born in Lafayette, Louisiana, Albarado like many other jockeys got his start at a very young age riding in races at the local “bush” tracks. He has won nearly 4,200 races in his career and was the regular rider of Horse of the Year Curlin, who finished third in the Kentucky Derby before going on to win many prestigious races like the Preakness Stakes, the Stephen Foster Handicap, the Woodward, the Breeders’ Cup Classic, and the Dubai World Cup. Other top mounts include Mineshaft, Court Vision, and Endorsement.  Robby won the 2007 Arlington Million with Jambalaya.
