Description

Peb's artwork depicts U.S. Racing Hall of Fame jockey Braulio Baeza.

Braulio Baeza (b. 1940) was born in Panama and moved to the U.S. in 1960. In his first year Baez was already working his way up the ranks of top jockeys in the U.S.

Baeza was the leading money winner in America from 1965 to 1969. He was awarded the George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award in 1968 and the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Jockey in 1972 and 1975.

He was among the first Latino jockeys to capture a Derby victory, riding Chateaugay to the win in 1963. He won the Belmont Stakes three times (1961, 1963, 1969) before competing in Europe and Canada.

Baeza was inducted in the National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame in 1976, and he retired that same year with a total of 3,140 U.S. wins.
