GARRETT GOMEZ NAMED SHOEMAKER AWARD WINNER AS OUTSTANDING BREEDERS’ CUP JOCKEY

Garrett Gomez, who won two Breeders’ Cup World Thoroughbred Championships races on Saturday at Belmont Park in New York, was named the Bill Shoemaker Award winner as the outstanding Breeders’ Cup Jockey of 2005.

The 33-year-old Gomez, a leading rider on the southern California circuit, captured the Bessemer Trust Breeders’ Cup Juvenile aboard Stevie Wonderboy and the NetJets Breeders’ Cup Mile on Artie Schiller. Those victories were the first two Breeders’ Cup career wins for Gomez, who also finished second on Taste of Paradise in the TVG Breeders’ Cup Sprint.

In voting by the international media covering the Breeders’ Cup, Gomez finished ahead of Edgar Prado, who also won two Breeders’ Cup races on Saturday, riding Folklore in the Alberto VO5 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies and on Silver Train in the TVG Breeders’ Cup Sprint.

Recently retired Hall of Fame Jockey Pat Day presented the Shoemaker Award to Gomez at Sunday’s Breeders’ Cup Press Breakfast at Belmont Park.

The Bill Shoemaker Award is named in honor of the legendary Hall of Fame jockey who died in 2003. Previous winners of the Shoemaker Award are Alex Solis in 2003 and John Velazquez in 2004.
