Continued: Reusse: Shakopee teen in hunt for jockey title at Canterbury Park

“I learned from a lot of people — other trainers, jockeys, my agents,” Canchari said. “One person who taught me a lot on the East Coast was the great jockey, Edgar Prado. He’s Peruvian, and that gave us a connection.”

Prado’s list of important wins is endless, including the Belmont Stakes in 2002 and 2004. At 19, Canchari’s potential also seems endless.

For now, his biggest win was with Stoupinator in the $100,000 Northbound Pride Oaks on Aug. 3 at Canterbury. He got the filly home by a head over Kipling’s Joy.

His parents were standing outside the winner’s circle as spectators. Alex received a kiss from Mom and accolades from his father.

“We are proud of him,” Luis said that weekend. “It would be nice to see a Minnesota kid win the riding title.”

One obstacle to that is Butler’s advantage in winners, 47-42. The other is Canchari’s latest suspension that starts Friday.

Something has to give with Alex’s riding style, and it doesn’t appear it will be the Canterbury stewards’ opinion.
