ABOUT RON TURCOTTE: Ron Turcotte was born in Drummond, New Brunswick, Canada on July 22, 1941. One of twelve children, Turcotte was always known to be a strong jockey because of his early years as a lumberjack. In 1960, unemployment sent him to Toronto. There he obtained a job as a hot-walker at E. P. Taylor’s Windfields farm. He recorded his first win in 1962 and was Canada’s top jockey in 1962 and 1963. He went on to race in the U.S. but his career ended tragically on July 13, 1978 when he became paralyzed from the waist down in a racing accident at Belmont Park.

Now confined to a wheelchair, he returned to New Brunswick to continue raising his four daughters and now lives a quiet life with his wife Gaetane.
