Rode in his first Breeders' Cup race last year and finished second with Afleet
Alex in the Juvenile.

Top mounts this year have included Afleet Alex (G1 Preakness Stakes, G1
Belmont Stakes, G2 Arkansas Derby), Euro Code (Oh Say Stakes) and Separato
(Gate Dancer Stakes).

Showed Quarter Horses in cowboy regalia – Western equitation, showmanship and
Western pleasure – as a child and teenager.

A top high school wrestler who made it to the state finals. He passed up a
chance to compete on a college scholarship when the weight categories were
raised which would have forced him to put on weight and compete against
wrestlers dropping down from 150 to his class of 126.

Also earned several belts in karate and played on the same Little League team
as Cincinnati Reds pitcher Eric Milton.

Briefly took growth hormone shots as a child but stopped because they hurt and
he felt his size wasn't an issue.

First visit to a racetrack came after high school graduation in 1998 with
family friend Bobb Szeyller, a breeder/owner at Penn National Race Course who
had been suggesting for years Rose's size would make him the perfect rider.
His look at the backside piqued his interest.

Another family friend, hunter-jumper trainer Ben Guanciolle, got Rose a job on
a Puerto Rican farm breaking babies in September 1998. Nine months later he
returned home to work as a hotwalker-groom-exercise boy for Delaware Park
trainer Mike Petro. Petro and his brother, Nick, a jockey, taught him to race-
ride. Rose got his apprentice license in September 2000. He earned his first
victory on Sept. 23, 2000 at Delaware aboard Daly's Princess.

Won his first stakes race aboard Citiroyal in the 2001 Francis “Jock” LaBelle
Memorial Stakes trained by Tim Ritchey.

Rides the mid-Atlantic circuit primarily at Delaware and the Maryland tracks.
Leading rider at Delaware Park in 2001, finished second in 2002.

Eclipse Award-winning apprentice jockey in 2001 when he led that category in
wins (312) and earnings ($4,459,411).

Won his 1,000th career race this summer.
