29-year-old Juan Hernandez was born in Veracruz, Mexico, and had dreamed of becoming a professional jockey since childhood. Growing up with a father who spent time as a quarter-horse jockey and ranch hand may have ignited the young boy’s passion and new bookmakers horse racing fans can see this passion every time he climbs in the saddle.

Introduced to horses at an early age, Juan was determined to make it in the industry. He began riding in Mexico City in 2008 at the age of 16. According to Hernandez, his career began to take off during the following year when he rode in the Clasico del Caribe in Puerto Rico and new online bookies took note. After this Hernandez officially hit the Northern California circuit where he would soon gain huge commercial success.

Hernandez’ Achievements

Juan Hernandez has maintained a top spot in the Southern California jockey rankings since his arrival in the middle of 2020. There he faced tough competition with athletes such as Flavien Prat, who made the prospect of winning a meet riding title challenging for Hernandez. However, Juan had the opportunity to show just how good he really is at the Del Mar fall meet and new bookmakers horse racing enthusiast were impressed.

Competing there, Hernandez made a big splash by booting home 17 winners from 79 starts which equates to an impressive 22%.  Competitors who Hernandez was up against like Prat often venture away from Southern California seeking rather big-money prizes. During the Del Mar stand, Hernandez had only four fewer mounts than his rival.

O’Bryan Comes Out of Retirement

O’Bryan, a well-seasoned and successful coach ventured out of retirement to coach Hernandez. He believed in Juan’s potential and stated that there were only one or two players who could make him step out of retirement- Hernandez was one of them. Hernandez and O’Bryan were clearly a force to be reckoned with. They began their journey by winning at a 22 percent clip at Los Alamitos during their first meet together.

What followed was an impressive fourth place finish at the Del Mar Summer Stand. Ever since then, Hernandez has continued to rest near the top of the Southern California jockey standings. “He’s just so well-prepared and doesn’t get the least bit nervous” says O’Bryan, who appreciates how Hernandez steps up fearlessly to the challenge every time, no matter how big the race is. Hernandez says that what comes next for him is “winning the biggest races” and new online bookies are sure to offer great odds for these events.
