Arca Yroca was a human male jockey who rode fathiers at the racetrack in the city of Canto Bight on the planet Cantonica. In around 34 ABY, he rode in a race on the crime lord Sturg Ganna's fathier Kessel Runner and in another on the fathier Hoth Stuff.


The human male Arca Yroca worked as a jockey on the planet Cantonica during the war between the First Order and the Resistance. In around 34 ABY,[4] he participated in several fathier races at the Canto Bight racetrack in the same night.[2][3]

In the fifth race of the night, Yroca rode at first post on a fathier named Kessel Runner that belonged to the crime lord Big Sturg Ganna.[3] In another race, the jockey rode the fathier Hoth Stuff and whipped it with an electrocrop. Shortly after the race, all of the fathier's kept in the racetrack's stables were released by the Resistance agents Finn and Rose Tico.[2]
