Jorge Ricardo (born September 30, 1961 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) is a jockey in South American Thoroughbred horse racing who became the all-time winningest rider in history on February 5, 2007.


Born into a horse racing family, Jorge Ricardo's father and two of his uncles were jockeys. Since making his professional racing debut in 1976 he has won 400 races in one year on five occasions and has been Brazil's leading jockey twenty-five consecutive years from 1982 through 2006.

Competing at the Hipodromo Argentino in Palermo, Buenos Aires, Ricardo earned the 9,981st (Up to Dec. 29, 2007) victory of his career to surpass the still active Canadian jockey Russell Baze as the all-time leader in racing wins. On Jan. 9, 2008, Ricardo earned his 10,000th win with a victory abord Membresia in the 11th race at San Isidro in Buenos Aires.
