Career Profile: Jaime returned to the limelight after taking the year off in 2003. Jaime's barn is now as strong as ever thanks to talented sophomores such as Texas Trio and PCQHRA Breeders Futurity winner Chicks Like Us. Jaime endured some tough times last year when Never Fold and Separate Secrets suffered life ending injuries while racing at Ruidoso Downs. "That was one of the toughest time that I've ever dealt with in this sport," Jaime said. Chicks Like Us' victory in the Breeders Futurity a couple of week's later helped ease those disappointments. "Dutch Masters III campaigned Chicks Like Us. They also owned Never Fold and Seperate Secrets. "Chicks Like Us' victory in the Breeders Futurity was some good news." Jaime can always be counted to have a couple of speedbalss in his stable. His 2-year-old stars in recent years have included Secret Card, Babe Watcher, Sassy Smith, Make It Anywhere and Corona Cartel. Corona Cartel, the winner of the Los Alamitos Million in 1996, is now one of the sport's leading stallions. Jaime's first win came with Gavilan Canyon at Los Alamitos in 1992. Prior to beginning his training career he was an assistant trainer for Bob Baffert and Carlos Lopez. Jaime's biggest training influence was his father, who trained horses for match races in Mexico.
