He went on to a stellar career as one of his country's top jockeys and in 1993 and 1994 was voted the Sovereign Award for Outstanding Jockey. In addition to numerous Graded stakes race wins, in 1998 Robert Landry won two of the three Canadian Classics. In 2004, he rode Niigon to victory in Canada's most prestigious race, the Queen's Plate.
