Flavien Prat is a prominent horse racing jockey who has won several of the sport's most notable events, including the Kentucky Derby and several Breeders' Cup races. He has a career record of over 1,000 wins from 5,000+ starts, with earnings in excess of $80million.
Rise to stardom
The 2019 Kentucky Derby victory gave Prat his first-ever Triple Crown race win, as his best finish up to that point had been third aboard Battle of Midway in the 2017 Kentucky Derby. He matched this third-place finish in 2021 with Hot Rod Charlie, who finished a single length behind winner Medina Spirit.
Prat's 2019 was not over with the Derby victory though. His season got even better as he was a jockey in all 14 Breeders' Cup races. His best result was a win aboard Storm the Court, who upset the Juvenile field by coming home in front at 45/1 for what was Prat's third career victory at the prestigious meeting.
In the 2021 Kentucky Derby, he guided 8/1 shot Hot Rod Charlie to third place. He then rode Rombauer to victory in the Preakness Stakes to secure his second Triple Crown success.

The jockey's most prestigious victory came in the 2019 Kentucky Derby on Country House. He secured his second Triple Crown victory with Rombauer in the 2021 Preakness Stakes.
