Eibar Coa's Son Launches Riding Career

The Coa family riding tradition will continue this winter when jockey Kieber Coa begins his apprentice career in the United States.


Coa, 19, is the son of journeyman Eibar Coa. He is expected to arrive in Florida early next week from Panama, where he graduated from the Laffit Pincay Jr. Jockey School on Dec. 2.

Young Coa will ride the first race of his career at Presidente Remon Racetrack in Panama City on Dec. 8. He has two mounts on the card, both in debut events for 2011 graduates of the school. He’ll ride in Florida at Gulfstream Park the following week, but plans to continue on to Southern California shortly thereafter to launch his promising career at the Santa Anita meet that opens Dec. 26. Agent Joe Ferrer, who also holds the book of top rider Rafael Bejarano, will handle his business.
