Venezuelan jockey Wilfred Vásquez is scheduled to make his debut in the second race this afternoon at Gulfstream Park, with the exemplary Drillzilla, trained by Puerto Rican Javier González.
Vásquez, born on August 24, 2003 in Ocumare del Tuy, Miranda state, became the youngest rider to win the Clásico Simón Bolívar, the most important event on the national equestrian calendar, a victory achieved in the 2020 edition at the Hippodrome La Rinconada with the Apistos horse, presented by Fernando Parilli, at the age of 17.
Wilfred Vásquez has been residing in the United States since last year, where he will begin his performances after completing the documentation required by the Florida oval authorities to perform in public competitions.
Drillzilla is a four-year-old brown son of Drill in Fazed by In Summation, loser in 11 starts, but with a good chance of becoming the surprise of the race and in his most recent he finished in seventh place.
In the short time that the apprentice Vásquez acted in the oval of Coche, he showed a good chair and a style that allows him to make the most of his respective commitments.
