I am not sure that Tony Amonte is still running at Suffolk, but last year he won a race at age 70 there.

isn't Jean Cruget at age 72 going to do the Jockey Challenge at AP during Million Week this year?

Good for her!  If I road for over five miles now days, I would be exhausted.   And hurting!

And there is no comparison to that and riding a race horse.

Martin Brown rides in la. Fair grounds and i think some of the other tracks down there and he is really really old for a jock. Once he brought in a bomb down there and one of the posters on the Nola starting gate board asked" What has Brown done for you lately" I think he is 66 years old, but the may be under reporting that by a few years.

It's Frank, not Tony.  He was still trying to set the record when he was 72, can't find anything more recent.  According to this he was born in 1935, so will be 76 next month:

Found this from earlier this year, Roy Brooks is a 69-year-old QH jockey:
