Face it, the truth of the matter is that we all have to start somewhere and online sports betting site players should be fully aware of some of the youngsters that are making their mark both in Chicago and California.

Let’s look at the Windy City first.

The beautiful Arlington Park over the decades as started some of the greatest riding careers in history. The ‘Pirate’ Laffit Pincay Jr. started his career there in 1966 and he won the riding title the next season.

Future Hall of Fames like Jerry Bailey and Pat Day broke their teeth at Arlington and this year it’s Esquivel Esquivel turn to embark on what some think will be great success in this sport.

The apprentice Esquivel won with nearly 20% of his starts at the Hawthorne meeting so he has some backers at Arlington.

Some of them are trainers like Chris Dorris and Mike Reavis. Both of these conditioners have to work hard to make a living and are currently in the top 30 in the standings but Esquivel also has been getting on some live stock for Hugh Robertson, who is currently 7th in the standings in purses won.

Esquivel has had more starters than anybody on the Arlington grounds and he is 3rd in the standings only 6 away from the leader.

The kid is also humble, Esquivel: “I really want to thank everybody for helping me out and being there for me. A lot of trainers know me and have put me on in the mornings. I think they rider me because I just try to work hard and get better.”

Esquivel has shown a particular knack with getting horses to relax, Esquivel: “I really like taking a hold of a horse and coming from behind. I like to see how the field is working and what is happening when I get my horse to relax.”

The kid is wise beyond his year, Esquivel: “ In my free time I stay home with my wife and daughter. I don’t spend as much time as I wish I could with them while the races are running, so I try to stay home when I can.”

Dedicated, talented and hunger are three nice traits that online sports betting site enthusiasts can rely on with this kid.

Out West, Irving Orozco has found it a little tougher but the apprentice has his followers and can only get better.

Around horses since he was 14, Orozco would gallop quarter horses growing up and that is where he started in California.

After riding the quarters at Los Alamitos, he moved his tack to Northern California and Golden Gate and recently returned after breaking his wrist. He was the leading apprentice rider at Betfair Hollywood this summer winning with 12 of his 81 starters and should rider his share of winners at Del Mar.

Because of his injury, his 5-pound head start as an apprentice has been extended and he will get the weight break until February of next year.

Over the decades, bug boys have done well at Del Mar so don’t be shocked if Orozco thrives.
