The Panamanian jockey Wigberto “Wiggy” Ramos led the exemplary Emblem Road to victory on Saturday, February 26,  in the $20 million Saudi Cup  considered the richest in the equestrian world.

"This has been great and more so at my age," said Wiggy, 53.

He commented that “now I can say that I can retire with my head held high”. "Let's enjoy it and see what happens," he added.

The American horses Country Grammer and Midnight Bourbon were behind the one ridden by the Panamanian. Country Grammer placed second, while Midnight Bourbon was third.

The Panamanian is based in Dubai (United Arab Emirates).  The 1800 meters race took place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
