Carter as he is universally known - Carter has been the awards&#39; recipient four times. That figure has only been surpassed by one man - the great Kip Didericksen, who won five titles. Didericksen dominated the profession, winning his five trophies in a his five titles in a seven year span. G.R. has been at the top of the game a lot longer than Kip, winning his titles in 1993, 1997, 2003 and then again in 2004 and there is no end in sight to Carter&#39;s domination of the sport.&nbsp;</p> <p> Last year was a typical banner year for G.R., as he piloted the World Champion Be A Bono to wins in the Los Alamitos Winter Derby, Los Alamitos Super Derby and Spencer Childers California Breeders Championship Handicap. &quot;I&#39;d have to say that my favorite race was the Los Alamitos Super Derby with Be A Bono,&quot; he said. &quot;It was the first time that they increased the purse and started calling it the Super Derby, and that brought the race a lot more prestige and showcased it more.&quot; G.R. grew up in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. &quot;I was raised on an American Quarter Horse. Those childhood experiences set the stage for a great lifestyle,&quot; he said. &quot;G.R. began galloping horses at the age of 13 to help pay for his participation in rodeos. He started riding at 16, and he began riding professionally after he graduated from high school in 1984.</p> <p> Since then, G.R. has hit the wire first in more than 2,500 Quarter Horse races throughout the country and he is by far one of the most in-demand jockeys in the sport. G.R. expects to stay busy in 2005. &quot;I&#39;m going to follow the same schedule I&#39;ve had the last couple of years,&quot; he said. &quot;When Sunland Park&#39;s season ends, I&#39;ll go to Oklahoma City and ride at Remington Park until Ruidoso opens. During the summer, I&#39;ll travel back and forth between Ruidoso and Fair Meadows in Tulsa, and in the fall I&#39;ll travel back and forth between the new Zia Park in Hobbs and Lone Star Park. Then of course, there are the end-of-the-year races in California. I&#39;ll try to him them all.&quot; It is practically assured that Carter&#39;s trademark summersault dismount, which he shows off after winning a major stakes races, will be featured at many racetrack throughout the country in 2005.</p>
