Ismael "Milo" Valenzuela with a friend at the track.

Milo won his first Kentucky Derby in 1958 on Tim Tam. Milo is one of the forefathers and trailblazers for the Hispanic and Latino Racing community. He is viewed by many as the "Jackie Robinson" of his time in his sport. Congratulations on your deserving Hall of Fame Award.
