With His Exercise Rider Aboard, Promising Post Time Wins Again

The Week In Review, By Bill Finley When Eric Camacho retired from riding in 2016, he thought he knew what his future would be. He'd work as an exercise rider in the mornings and step aside in the afternoons and let someone else get all the glory and the big paychecks.
