Jorge Abreu is a native of the Dominican Republic. He came to the United States in 1984 when he was nine years old and has steadily worked his way up the ladder to where he could finally commandeer his own outfit in 2016.
His first job in racing was with Murray Garren. Abreu then went on to gallop for Billy Badgett. His first assistant trainer job was with John Terranova, where he galloped for him too. Then, from Terranova, Abreu switched to Nick Zito when he had graded stakes winners including Bellamy Road and Sun King. After six years with Nick, he went over to Chad Brown’s barn and was an assistant for nine years.
To date, Jorge Abreu has over $370,000 in earnings since starting his own stable in 2016.
