Florent Geroux, Doug Bredar Part Ways After 12 Years; John Panagot To Pick Up Flo’s Book

Florent Geroux

Florent Geroux and agent Doug Bredar will part ways after the Breeders' Cup on Nov. 4 and 5 at Keeneland, Bredar announced via Twitter on Wednesday.

According to the Daily Racing Form, New York-based agent John Panagot will pick up Geroux's book after the World Championships. Panagot will continue to represent New York-based rider Manny Franco, remaining primarily in New York while “occasionally popping in and out of wherever Florent is riding.”

Geroux plans to ride in Kentucky during the spring and fall, Fair Grounds in the winter, and Saratoga in the summer.

Bredar left his career as a racing official when he took the young French rider's book in 2010, and the two won over $140 million in purses together with highlights like Horse of the Year Gun Runner and multiple divisional champion Monomoy Girl. Bredar told DRF his future is “undetermined.”

“Doug did so much for me and my family,” Geroux told DRF. “I've been thinking the last few weeks about my next move. I will always be grateful to Doug.”
