Dominguez Honored With 2013 El Award

Jockey Ramon Dominguez
Retired jockey Ramon Dominguez was a recipient of the 2013 "El Award" yesterday. The recognition is given annually by El Diario La Prensa to the most outstanding Latino men in the community. The luncheon ceremony took place at the Grand Havana Room in Manhattan.

 

In its 10th year, the El Awards are given to the most influential and successful Latinos in academia, business, entertainment, public service, and sports. Among this year's honorees are Grammy Award winner Rafael Ithier; Steven Espinoza, Executive Vice President of Showtime Sports; Robert T. Maldonado, regional President of the Hispanic National Bar Association; Joseph A. Morales, vice president of News and Content for Telemundo NY; Rafael Ortiz, director of endovascular neurosurgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, and John Quinones, an ABC News Anchor and seven-time Emmy Award winner.

 

"Receiving this award is an honor for me and a motivation to those like me looking to make a mark on society, "said Dominguez.

 

A 36-year-old native of Caracas, Venezuela, Dominguez was at the peak of his career when he retired in June, five months after a spill at Aqueduct Racetrack. He set a single-year record for purse earnings in 2012 with $25,634,852. His 4,985 victories rank 29th on the all-time list, and his $191,615,698 in purse money won places him 14th. Dominguez is a three-time winner of the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Jockey and was the leading rider on The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) circuit from 2009-12. He won 21 meet titles in New York.
