Ramon A. Dominguez (born November 24, 1976 in Caracas, Venezuela) is an Eclipse Award-winning champion jockey in American Thoroughbred horse racing.

Dominguez began riding horses at age 16 in his native Venezuela in show jumping then turned to riding thoroughbreds in flat racing events. He emigrated to the United States where he began riding at Florida's Hialeah Park Race Track in 1996.

In 2001 he got his big break by becoming the winningest jockey in the United States. He repeated the feat in 2003, and in 2004 he won the Isaac Murphy Award for having the highest winning percentage among all American-based jockeys.
