Florent Geroux is a French born jockey who got his start riding in Europe. After early success as the leading apprentice jockey in his home country he set his eyes on becoming an American rider in 2007. Upon arrival in the United States he suffered a serious injury that delayed his impact on American racing.
It wouldn’t be until 2010 that he got his first stakes win at Presque Isle Downs and his first American jockey meet title at Hawthorne in Illinois. From there his career would take an upward trajectory in the States earning him mounts on superstars of the game like Shedaresthedevil, Monomoy Girl, and Gun Runner. Geroux has won at least graded stakes every year since 2010.
Geroux is a gifted rider who has been well served by his relationship with up and coming trainer Brad Cox. He has achieved several significant victories in his riding career including the Clark Handicap, The Whitney, The Pegasus World Cup, and the Kentucky Oaks. “Flo” has also been in the saddle for 6 Breeder’s Cup victories including the 2020 Breeder’s Cup Distaff aboard Monomoy Girl.
