Biography

Peruvian-born American jockey, a U.S. Racing Hall of Fame jockey in thoroughbred horse racing.

His big break came in 1997 when he won 536 races, making him the fourth rider in history to win 500 races in one year. Much of that success was gained in Maryland, where he ruled that circuit for several years.

A resident of Hollywood, Florida in 2004 Prado became the 19th jockey in thoroughbred racing history to win 5,000 races. Edgar has three children named Edgar Jr, Louis and Patricia.
