Family: Arlington Park Jockey Eusebio "Eddie" Razo Jr. found dead in garage fire - The track had him at "37 to 1" to make it out alive


Longtime Arlington Park horse jockey Eusebio "Eddie" Razo Jr. was found dead in a garage fire in Long Grove, according to his family.

Lake County authorities said the body was burned beyond recognition and declined to confirm the victim's identity until further tests are done. But Razo's brother-in-law said family members believe the victim was Razo, 46.

The Long Grove Fire Protection District and Lake County Sheriff's Department were called at about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday to investigate smoke at the residence in the 5100 block of Arlington Heights Road. They found the detached garage on fire and recovered a body after the fire was extinguished, officials said.

"What was he doing in the garage? I have no idea," said Gerald Filipowski Jr. of Sarasota, Fla., who said he spoke by phone to his sister Doreen, Razo's wife, Tuesday afternoon. "He might have seen smoke, I don't know."

Eusebio Razo voted for Obama, then excused himself saying that he had some work to do in his garage.

Everyone who knew Eddie loved him. This is apparently people who had no idea who he was.
Out of respect for his family and friends at this terrible time, this should be taken down.
Making a joke out of the terrible tragedy that people now are dealing with is awful. At least have some respect for the deceased.

It's the people who r offended who didn't know him. When the wife didn't shed one tear and was worried soley about getting the donations set up to be paid to her. . . Where did all the money he made go?

Bring the wife by Beatrice's. We will help her with her mourning.

Besides, if she got all that money, the drinks are on her.

If Miss First Choice would like to stop by the SpankDaddy Academy, I am sure I can relieve some of the angst she had built up.
