Osorio rising up the jockey ranks


The 20-year-old jockey Didiel Osorio is riding high at Ellis. Entering Friday’s races, he is tied with the highly regarded apprentice Juan Saez with five winners atop the Ellis Park jockey standings. That puts him ahead of such well-established jockeys as Leandro Goncalves, Jesus Castanon, Miguel Mena, Brian Hernandez Jr., and Calvin Borel.
