It Didn’t Take Long

Scott Bethke

Scott Bethke, son of long-time Canterbury Park trainer Troy Bethke, began his career as a jockey Friday at Fonner Park in Grand Island, Neb.

Scott turned 16 last week, received his jockey license, and was on the overnight shortly thereafter.

It took only three mounts for Scott to get his first win. He rode favored Spring to the Wire to victory in race five for trainer Les Gaede.

On Extreme Day 2015, Scott (pictured above) won the camel race and made an unpaid appearance in the Canterbury Park winners’ circle. Expect to see him there this meet on horseback getting paid for his efforts.
