In 2007 jockey Rico Walcott followed his older brother Rickey to Alberta from Barbados and was immediately spotted as a Rising Star. At that time Rico said “I’m trying to head to the top, it’s where I want to go.” And that’s exactly where he went! He’s been leading rider in Alberta for the last 6 years and is already on top of the jockey standings at Northlands Park for 2017. Incredibly humble, Rico states that the key to his success is to “never worry, just ride and never look back!”  This feature went to air in 2008.
