Jockey Suraj Narredu, a winner of more than 1,000 races in
his native India, tallied
his first North American victory when he guided Al Ali’s Invisible Star to a 1
½-length score in the first race at Arlington
Park on Sunday.
“He broke out well and was in ideal position the
whole way,” Narraedu said. “He opened up in the stretch and went very
well for me. This is a very big moment for me.”
Narredu, 26, began his career at the BARI
riding school in Bangalore
as a 12-year-old and has been riding professionally for eight years.
