Like trainer Todd Pletcher, jockey John Velazquez was a repeat winner as Champion Jockey. He won 250 races, and his mounts earned $20.8 million. Not surprisingly, he is the regular rider for many of Todd Pletcher's horses including Flower Alley, Ashado, and Bandini. He was also the regular rider of 2005 Champion Turf Male Leroidesaimaux.
