The Venezuelan will be given the Mike Venezia Memorial Award at Saratoga Race Course, where he often won during a distinguished career.

The prize bears the name of a jockey killed on the course in 1988.

Dominguez, also three-times winner of the Eclipse Award, fell in January and was forced to announce his retirement from competition in June.

He had a total of 4,985 career wins.
