Wayne Catalano

Wayne "The Cat" Catalano has had an amazing career in the sport of horses racing. He developed his amazing work ethic when he started out on the backstretch of the Fair Grounds working for Hall of Fame trainer Jack Van Berg. Catalano went on to a long and successful career as a jockey and has been able to transfer his skills as a horseman to that of one of the country's most successful trainers. He has two horses in the top 10 points standings for both the Kentucky Derby (Uncontested) and Kentucky Oaks (Farrell). On Saturday Feb. 25, 2017 he will send Farrell to post in the Grade 2 Rachel Alexandra at the Fair Grounds against last season's Breeders' Cup Juvenile runner-up Valadorna.
