For the last several years, two of trainer Brad Cox’s three sons, Bryson and Blake, have been a pivotal role in his stable’s operation. Bryson, who graduated from Louisville’s DeSales High School in 2016, will now become a jockey agent to veteran rider Chris Landeros.
“It’s a decision I’ve been thinking about making for a long time,” said Bryson, who was Brad’s foreman at his Churchill Downs-based string. “I have a lot of support behind us and I think we’re going to have a lot of success together. Chris is a great rider and he’s won a lot of races throughout his career. He’s a classy person and knows a lot about this sport.”
Bryson will take over the calls for Landeros beginning at Keeneland’s Fall Meet. Landeros plans to ride this winter at Turfway Park.
“Bryson comes from a great family and has a lot of proven work ethic in this industry,” Landeros said. “I’m excited to start this next journey in my career with him.”
Landeros has 1,603 wins from 10,793 mounts in his 17-year career. He was ranked No. 8 with 13 wins at this year’s Turfway Park Winter Meet and No. 4 in 2021 with 28 victories.
