JOCKEY ALFONSO LUJAN
FUELED BY FAMILY AND FAST HORSES
Quarter Horse jockey Alfonso Lujan is an all around good guy. Respected by his fellow riders and trainers, he is regarded as a hard-working and humble professional as well as a devoted family man. However, it might surprise people to know that he is a self-confessed "speed junkie", who loves the thrill of riding those blazing fast Quarter Horses!
Lujan was born in Pecos, Texas and made his riding debut when he was 19. The first few years were lean, to say the least, but Lujan was never impatient in honing his craft.
