Jockey David Flores Welcomes Baby Boy

David Flores was passing out faux cigars (of the blue bubble gum variety) at Clockers’ Corner Wednesday morning in celebration of the birth of his first son, John Lorenzo, “My wife (Dawn, 32) had our boy on Dec. 5,” said the 28-year riding veteran, who will be 45 on Feb. 5. “This is my fifth child, but my first boy. I have four girls. He weighed seven and a half pounds.”

Told it seemed the baby was too big to be a jockey, Flores concurred. “I think he’s overweight already,” said Flores, who is among five finalists this year for Santa Anita’s George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award.

“First of all, it’s a privilege to be here in this colony of riders and among all the big trainers, owners and the fans,” said Flores, waxing philosophically. “To be nominated for the George Woolf, wow. It’s an award any rider would love to have.”
