February Groom of the Month

Eduardo Diaz is presented his Groom of the Month award by FHBPA’s Herb Oster

FHBPA is pleased to recognize Eduardo Diaz as the Groom of the Month for February 2019.

A native of Mexico, Eduardo came to the US about 12 years ago to join his brothers who were working on the backside

of Calder Race Course. Growing up on a horse farm provided good experience for Eduardo when he found his first job as a hot walker,

Six months later he began to rub horses and became a groom in the barn of Ralph Ziadie.

His journey has taken him to the barn of trainer Angel Rodriguez and now to the barn of trainer Saffie Joseph Jr. where he is currently employed.

The FHBPA presented Eduardo Diaz his award certificate following the first race on March 1, 2019
