Jockey Carlos Castro won his 1,000th career thoroughbred race when he rode Riseseastsetswest to victory in the tenth race Friday at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn.

Castro, 32, began his riding career in 2001 in his native Puerto Rico before coming to the United States that same year. His 9,683 mounts have earned more than $17 million in purses.

“It feels amazing,” Castro said. “I’ve been waiting four or five weeks. I knew it was coming.”
