Jockey who won 1963 Kentucky Derby helped lead the way for Latinos

Braulio Baeza was born in Panama and lives in New York, but his story is inextricably tied to Kentucky and Lexington. He won the Kentucky Derby 50 years ago aboard Chateaugay, a horse from Lexington's Darby Dan Farm. He was among the first Latino jockeys to win the Run for the Roses.
