Background


Racing is in Corey’s blood – his grandfather was a trainer who also had some horses, and his father, Gerald, was a jockey and is now a trainer. Grew up in Lafayette, La., where racing is an integral part of the local culture. He was always around horses and began galloping horses when he was 9. He received his first race-riding instructions at the late John Franks’ farm in Opelousas, and rode at the bush tracks before launching his professional career in 1991. Other jockeys who received their starts in the area are Racing Hall of Famers Calvin Borel, Kent Desormeaux and Eddie Delahoussaye.
