From Bloodhorse, an article about a 70-that's SEVEN OH!-year old jockey won a race at River Downs. There is an inspiration for us all!
Richard Rettele, a 70-year-old who trains Thoroughbreds and rides Quarter Horses, just keeps on going—he won a $15,000 stakes aboard Fearles Fred in the $15,000 Queen City Dash at River Downs in Ohio Aug. 10.
Rettele is a Kansas native who began training Thoroughbreds in Michigan at Detroit Race Course and Hazel Park. His wife, Carol, trains the Quarter Horses, which compete at tracks in the Midwest.
