Eduardo Pedroza was born in Panama, Central America, but has been riding in Germany (where he is known as ‘Eddy’) since 1995. He has ridden well over 1,000 winners in Europe.
That tally includes nine Group 1 wins, four in Germany (the 2003 Deutschland Preis on Sabiango, the 2011 Rheinland-Pokal on Earl of Tinsdal, the 2013 German Oaks on Penelopa and the 2013 Grosser Preis von Baden on Novellist), three in Italy (the 2010 Premio Presidente della Repubblica on Querari and the 2012 and 2013 editions of the Grand Premio del Jockey Club on Novellist and Earl of Tinsdal) plus one in Dubai, when Paolini dead-heated with Right Approach in the 2004 Dubai Duty Free Stakes, and one in France in 2013 when Altano landed the Prix du Cadran.
He acted as second jockey (behind Andreas Suborics) to Bremen trainer Andreas Wohler for some seasons, and gained the nickname ‘The King of the East’ for his high strike rate at East German tracks.
When Suborics chose to take up an offer to become retained jockey to owner Baron Georg von Ullmann at the end of August 2002, Pedroza was the obvious choice to replace him as Wohler’s stable jockey. That partnership continues to endure.
He has won the German Jockeys Championship on four occasions, in four consecutive seasons between 2007 and 2010.
