Second 'Cordero on Cordero' Episode Available

The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) has released the second video in its “Cordero on Cordero” series, in which Hall of Fame jockey Angel Cordero, Jr. recounts some of the most memorable moments and biggest wins in his career. The episode can be viewed on the official NYRA YouTube site at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gV0z4m5LBg.


The second installment revisits Cordero’s victory in the 1984 Grade 1 Whitney Handicap aboard Slew o’ Gold. In the clip Cordero recalls bantering with Track Barron’s rider, Jean Cruguet, before and during the race. Slew o’ Gold would go on to easily defeat Track Barron, giving Cordero his first triumph in the Whitney.


As a jockey Cordero won 7,057 races, including many of the most prestigious events in North America. In New York alone, Cordero won the 1976 Belmont Stakes, six editions of the Woodward (including five straight from 1981-1985), five runnings of the Suburban, and the 1985 Travers. He added a second Whitney victory in 1985, ironically aboard Track Barron.


NYRA will release additional episodes of “Cordero on Cordero” in the upcoming weeks, giving racing fans the opportunity to hear more of Cordero’s takes on some of the most historical events in racing history.
