|Before becoming one of the world’s foremost jockeys,
Garrett Gomez was an alcoholic and a drug addict.
Throughout his career, he established himself as an up-and-
coming jockey, but just as it seemed as if the racing world
was his for the taking, he threw it all away, and retreated to
a life where alcohol and drugs dictated his every move.
Read the remarkable journey of a jockey who had it all, lost
it all, and came back to win his life, his family and his career.
Written by Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award winner Rudolph
Alvarado with Garrett Gomez, this story of addiction and
salvation will pull back the curtain on Mr. Gomez's life and
allow racing fans to look inside the life of a man, husband,
father, jockey, and recovering addict who is still considered
one of horse racing’s premier jockeys.
