A native of Venezuela, Centeno has experienced periods of dominance while riding in the Mid-Atlantic and at Tampa Bay Downs (where he’s won the riding championship on a half-dozen occasions).
Centeno earned his 2,000th career win on July 28, 2014, at Parx Racing when he guided Forest Rim to a victory in the seventh race.
In 2019, Centeno guided Alwaysmining to three straight stakes wins as part of a six-race winning streak to earn consideration for the Preakness Stakes.
Centeno has won the Tampa Bay Derby twice in his career with Musket Man in 2009 and Ring Weekend in 2014.
