The Friday Show Presented By Woodbine: Jockey Agent Ron Anderson Looks Ahead To The Breeders’ Cup

Ron Anderson, in his 50th year as a jockey agent, has represented some of the sport's greatest riders, including Hall of Famers Chris Antley, Jerry Bailey, Garrett Gomez, Gary Stevens, and John Velazquez. Anderson currently represents Velazquez and Joel Rosario, who won the Eclipse Award as outstanding jockey in 2021.

Breeders' Cup has been especially rewarding for Anderson, who has booked 38 championship day winners for his riders dating back to the first Breeders' Cup in 1984, when Fernando Toro guided Royal Heroine to victory in the Grade 1 Mile for John Gosden.

Anderson joins Ray Paulick and Joe Nevills in this week's Friday Show, discussing some of the top mounts that Velazquez and Rosario will handle at this year's 39th Breeders' Cup. He also explains the role of the agent and discusses how the game and his profession have changed over the years.
