KINGSTON, Jamaica – Dane “The Warrior Chief” Nelson recently added to his credentials his first jockey’s championship at Century Mile racetrack in Edmonton, Canada.
The 39-year-old Nelson booted a double to finish the season with 40 winners from 178 rides and Can$460,400. Jose Mariano Asencio finished second on 36 winners from 161 mounts, and Enrique Alonzo Gonzalez finished third with 31 winners from 168 mounts.

Fellow Jamaicans Linton Steadman (four victories) finished 13th, Richard Lunan (three wins) was 16th, and Andre Martin (two wins) was 19th. The race meet began on May 6.

“It’s a very grateful and overwhelming feeling to know that I’ve won another championship in my career. What makes this title even sweeter is that I won it on the international stage,” Nelson said.

“It brings me joy and blessings. I’ve been putting in the effort and I’m simply glad it’s paid off. Hard effort is the only way to achieve success, and Dane Nelson is all about it. I can’t really complain because I’ve been having a terrific time at Century Mile with a fantastic agent named Bob Fowles.

“I must thank all the owners, trainers, fellow jockeys, grooms, connections, racing personnel, and everyone for their support and guidance as without them this wouldn’t be possible,” Nelson added.
