Arlington Park jockey Eusebio “Eddie” Razo Jr. was reported killed in a Long Grove garage fire after his body was discovered after firefighters extinguished the fire.

Long Grove firefighter/paramedics and Lake County Sheriff’s police responded about 9:20 a.m. Tuesday to a detached garage fire in the 5100 block of Arlington Heights Road. Firefighters received a report that a large amount of gasoline was possibly involved in the fire.

Jockey Eusebio “Eddie” Razo Jr. started his career in Mexico, and moved to the United States in 1983. He raced every year, and in 2012 had been riding in Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas. He was planning to return to the Chicago area this season. He has raced locally at Arlington Park, Hawthorne Race Course and Sportsmans Park. He won almost 900 races at Arlington Park. In his career he won 2,962 races and his races earned $64,011,843, according to Equibase.

Arlington Heights Road was blocked north of McHenry Road by Buffalo Grove police because of hoses placed across Arlington Heights Road at Thompson Boulevard. The fire scene is located north of Montessori World of Discovery in Buffalo Grove. The property is located west of Arlington Heights Road, behind Sunset Foods, which is on Route 83.

Firefighters from Buffalo Grove, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, Palatine, Lake Zurich, Libertyville and others assisted Long Grove firefighters either at the scene or providing coverage for Long Grove. Buffalo Grove police assisted Lake County Sheriff’s police.

A State of Illinois Fire Marshal’s office investigator was called to the scene after the apparent burned body of a man was discovered.

First Place: Rocket TwentyOne, Race 3 at Prairie Meadows, August 12, 20121 (Frank Fletcher, Owner; Tom Howard, Trainer; Eddie Razo, Jockey; Kathy Moore, Manager).
