Jockey arrested, said to be in U.S. illegally


Jockey Marco Ccamaque, a 35-year-old native of Lima, Peru, was arrested Friday night by the U.S. Border Patrol at Presque Isle Downs in Erie, Pa. According to Jim Perfetto of the Pennsylvania Racing Commission, Ccamaque was arrested because he had no working papers and was in the country illegally.

“He will be held in the Erie County holding facility and then taken to York for a hearing before an immigration judge,” Perfetto said.

Ccamaque has hired an attorney, George Cramaco, who was unavailable for comment.
