17 riding titles in Southern California. 7 Breeders’ Cup wins. A Kentucky Derby, a Preakness, multiple Grade 1’s, and over 4300 wins in the saddle. One of the best resumes in horse racing. Patrick Valenzuela aka P Val sits down for some One on One with Jon Stettin and they talk their passion, horse racing.
