Jockey World Radio, co-hosted by Lovato and horsewoman Torrie Needham, is an educational internet radio broadcast about the world of thoroughbred horse racing with an inside look at racing's past, present and future and in the past, Lovato has invited many top industry leaders and professionals on-air to share their stories, knowledge and advice with his listeners. The program was on hiatus in 2013 so that Lovato could create the "365 Days of Racing Terminology" video series, which among other places, was presented on YouTube and America's Best Racing. Lovato's goal for this series was to create one racing terminology video for every day of 2013 to better educate racing fans and bring awareness to Jockey World's mission. With the help of an assistant, Lovato wrote and created a video for every day of the year, each one explaining and illustrating a term or phrase used in the racing industry. The videos were created using photos, video footage, and drawings along with Lovato's own narration or that of his guests to define each term.


On top of making Equicizers full-time at his home in Norwalk, Ohio, Lovato also wanted to educate people about horse racing. In 2011 Lovato founded Jockey World, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to "providing reliable information, tools, training, guidance and resources that include knowledge in health & safety to anyone who wishes to pursue a career or develop a better understanding of the horse racing industry." Jockey World is not gambling-related, but is an educational organization. Lovato works to create "educational tools and media that are fun and engaging that will help people have a better understanding of the horse racing industry."


In 2009, Lovato held his first Jockey Camp to teach students about the physical and mental aspects of what it takes to become a jockey or exercise rider. Real horses are not used in this camp. Lovato conducts lessons with simulation training aboard Equicizers, video evaluations and analysis, indoor classroom, as well as outdoor activities. Lovato's goal with this camp is to "provide a comprehensive learning experience for prospective jockeys and exercise riders in a way that provides a safe and enlightening opportunity for those wishing to begin their journey as a jockey, exercise rider or another career in the Thoroughbred horse racing industry."


Based mainly on the East Coast, Lovato rode at tracks all around the country throughout a career that spanned 25 years. He rode his last race on September 19, 2004, and thereafter retired from racing. In 2012, Lovato participated in a Legends Race at Arlington Park, during a week of racing events to benefit the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF).


Lovato built his first non-motorized mechanical horse in 1982 when he had to recover from a seriously broken leg that occurred as a result of a riding accident. There were no horse riding simulators on the market at the time, and so he designed one for his own rehabilitation. As word got out about his invention, Lovato began receiving requests from other jockeys to build more, and the design evolved into the Equicizer. Lovato originally manufactured Equicizers in his garage and could produce five a month, which were purchased by many top jockeys. In 2011 he sold the Equicizer brand to Equisense Inc., with the idea they would manufacture and marketed it more widely, but in March 2014 Lovato repurchased the business and took back full control.


At age 18, Lovato had mounts in the Preakness, Belmont and Travers Stakes. In the 1981 Jockey Club Gold Cup, he rode 50-1 longshot Peatmoss, almost beating the great John Henry and Bill Shoemaker, which could have been one of the biggest upsets of the decade. A week later, Frankie and Peatmoss teamed up again to win the Kelso Handicap for the 2nd year in a row.


Lovato is very likely the only rider to ever win the same stakes race twice in one meet. He was still an apprentice on August 6, 1980 when he rode Quintessential in the $100,000 DeWitt Clinton Stakes for trainer Johnny Campo at Saratoga Race Course. As the last horse, Move It Now, was preparing to load in a field of 11, the starter accidentally pressed the start button opening the gates and starting the race. With the favorite Move It Now still behind the gates, and other jockeys, assistant starters and horses completely surprised and unprepared, Lovato managed to break cleanly, made the lead and won aboard Quintessential. The race was declared official though a re-run of the race was created two weeks later to make up for the false start mishap. On August 25, the new race was run but under a different name, the West Point Stakes, in which Lovato and Quintessential went on to win for the second time.

Murty then sent Lovato to trainer Jerry Noss in Ohio and he went on to become the 2nd leading rider of the meet and leading apprentice of the year at Thistledown. Over the course of his apprentice year, Lovato claimed leading apprentice titles not only in OH, but also in LA, NY & NJ. Lovato was voted the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Apprentice Jockey in 1980.


Lovato spent most of this childhood growing up and going to school in the suburb of Cherry Hill, NJ. At age 14 he left home to go work on a Thoroughbred farm in Ocala, Florida where he worked as a farm hand and rider. At 16, he went to work for trainer Robert "Bobby" Murty, who put Lovato under contract and helped him get his first exercise riders' license in February 1979 at Hialeah Park Race Track.

After obtaining his GED high school diploma in early 1979, as a graduation present, Murty named Frankie on his first horse in May of that same year at Hialeah. Lovato then went to Belmont Park in New York where he continued to be the head exercise rider for Murty Stable and rode a few more races over the course of the summer. He won his first race on October 9, 1979 aboard "Star T Lee" at the Meadowlands Racetrack in New Jersey for trainer Doug Peterson and Tayhill Stable.
