As a jockey agent, Doug Bredar may be the most credentialed in the country, with over 25 years of experience in almost every aspect of the sport from coast to coast. He served as racing secretary at Gulfstream Park and Louisiana Downs and as director of racing and racing secretary at Churchill Downs, Ellis Park, Turf Paradise and Prairie Meadows. He was the assistant racing secretary and stakes coordinator at Hollywood Park. Bredar elected to leave the confines of the racing office and use his knowledge of the game and nationwide contacts to try his hand as a jockey agent. Five years ago, when French-born jockey Florent Geroux was trying to break into the Chicago circuit, he was lucky to ride two or three races a day. But jockey and agent persevered. Now, thanks in part to a manic travel schedule, Geroux is the hottest Midwest-based rider in the country, and leading rider at the Kentucky Downs meet. Bredar and Geroux are currently atop the standings at the Fair Grounds meet.
