Solis (born March 25, 1964 in Panama City, Panama) is a jockey based in the United States. He currently lives in Glendora, California and rides predominantly in Southern California. He got his big break and his first gained national prominence when he won the 1986 Preakness Stakes with Snow Chief. In 2002, he was inducted in the Calder Race Course Hall of Fame. Solis won two Breeders' Cup races in 2003 with Johar (who finished in a dead heat) in the Breeders' Cup Turf and aboard Pleasantly Perfect in the Classic, both trained by Richard Mandella. Also finished second aboard Mandella-trained Minister Eric in the Juvenile that year at Santa Anita Park. He ended the year ranked fourth nationally in purse earnings with a career-best $16,304,252. Alex Solis finished second in the Kentucky Derby three out of four years with Captain Bodgit in 1997, Victory Gallop in 1998 and Aptitude in 2000. Twenty-three-year-old sensation Rosie Napravnik concluded the 139th Thoroughbred Racing Season at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots as the meet’s leading jockey with 110 wins, becoming the first woman to clinch a riding title at the New Orleans oval. Napravnik was honored in the winner’s circle following Race 7 on Sunday’s Closing Day program, one day after she made history as the first female to win the Louisiana Derby with an agile ride aboard Pants On Fire, who was named Fair Grounds’ Horse of the Meet. Napravnik won 13 stakes races on the season, topped by her biggest career victory in the city’s first $1 million race, the Louisiana Derby. “That was an unbelievable feeling,” she said. “You know, it wasn’t really expected. When I came across the wire I thought to myself, ‘Well, wait, this is the Derby, right? Did I just win the Derby?’” Napravnik, who finished 31 wins ahead of second-leading jockey Shaun Bridgmohan (79 wins), indicated she will ride next at Keeneland’s Spring Racing Season, April 8-29, before heading to Delaware Park, where she dominated the standings last year.
