The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing

FRANCO-CORDERO SPLIT

By HRI Staff – Jockey Manny Franco and agent Angel Cordero, Jr. have parted ways, reported Bill Finley of the Thoroughbred Daily News.

““He just wants to do better. I don’t blame him. Everybody wants to be No. 1. There’s no problem,” said Cordero.

The New York-based Franco won 252 and 221 races in 2018 and 2019, respectively, but his numbers dropped to 140 in 2020 (when New York racing was shut down for several months due to the pandemic) and 184 in 2021.

Cordero, a Hall of Fame rider, represents apprentice rider Jose Gomez. The agent split with Hall of Famer Johnny Velazquez in 2020.
