The Victor Amado memorial race is this coming Sunday August 1st in the 5th race. Erika and family will be in attendance and presenting a blanket to the winning horse owner. Anyone who would like to get in a photo with the family is welcome.

Victor was born in Cañete Peru September 1st, 1951, emigrated to Toronto Canada in 1970 and has worked in the capacity of jockey, pony person, exercise rider, valet, and more in that time frame.
Victor has been part of the racing scene in Alberta since 1980. Victor’s first stop in Canada was Woodbine in Ontario, where he met Trainer Red McKenzie. Red brought Victor back to Alberta with him to start working at Northlands Park. Victor has called Alberta home ever since.
Victor is beloved by his backstretch workers and mentored many of our exercise riders and jockeys. Victor has worked in the jocks room for years and has many close friends that are honoring him today. Our backstretch community is feeling the hole that he has left behind and are proud to have his family – wife Erika and sons Erick and Dustin join us in the winners circle to show their appreciation of his time with us.
We miss you Victor and may god bless.
