- Biamonte, Ralph Dr.
- English Horse Racing
Ralph’s interest in horses and the field of horse racing began in the 1950’s in Niagara Falls, where he was employed as a hot walker for horses at Fort Erie Race Track. His passion for horses remained strong, even as he attended dental school and established a dental practice in Niagara Falls (1971-2002). In the midst of running a busy dental office, Ralph pursued his interest in horse racing as an owner, and in 1985 he took the next step and acquired his Thoroughbred Trainers License.
Within a few years, Ralph established himself as the top trainer at Fort Erie Racetrack, and was the leading trainer at that track from 1992-1997. In consecutive years, he broke the track record for number of wins in a single season by a trainer. Ralph achieved his 1000th career win in 2013 and currently has 1160 victories while still maintaining a successful stable. These wins include over 20 different “Stakes Race” winners, and Ralph is ranked as a Graded Stakes Winning Trainer.
Over the past few decades, Ralph has raced his horses in Ontario, New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, West Virginia, Florida, and Ohio. He has also enjoyed great success in the field of breeding, and has bred multiple Stakes winning horses of his own. Total purse earning over the course of Ralph’s training career have reached 23 million dollars. He continues to train and race horses in Southern Ontario.
