Brooklyn, NY-based photographer John Taggart took photos of legendary jockey Charles “C.C.” Lopez for The Wall Street Journal.
I was recently sent on an assignment for The Wall Street Journal to document legendary jockey Charles “C.C.” Lopez at Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, New York. Mr. Lopez is 54 years old and has been a professional jockey for 36 years — though he has never won a top-tier race. The assignment was to profile Lopez for a race called the Wood Memorial, a prep race for the Kentucky Derby.
