Reylu Gutierrez Teams With Agent Muzikar For ‘Once-In-A-Lifetime’ Opportunity

Jockey Reylu Gutierrez has returned to ride regularly at Gulfstream Park, where he will team up with agent Matt Muzikar.

“Matt Muzikar is a top agent. He has Tyler [Gaffalione] and had [Javier] Castellano in the past. He’s brought guys to the next level – that’s something in my young career that I hope to get to someday,” Gutierrez said. “I know he’s going to push me to be the best that I can be.”

Gutierrez enjoyed much success riding at Gulfstream during his apprenticeship before venturing to Aqueduct last fall. He was a finalist for 2018 Eclipse Award Apprentice Jockey honor after winning 109 races last year. He went on to rank fifth in the winter jockey’s standings at Aqueduct with 46 winners. He won 13 of 85 races during the Monmouth Park meet before making his career move to Gulfstream.

“My uncle [Jose Gutierrez] is down here. He is my mentor and my teacher,” Gutierrez said. “I want to get as much experience as I can and win as much as I can. This is home for me. I feel so comfortable down here. Working with Matt is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Gutierrez won with his first mount at Gulfstream upon the permanent switch when he guided Lailoni to victory in Thursday’s second race.
