Jockey agent Kiaran McLaughlin will add jockey John Velazquez to his roster, which already includes Luis Saez, McLaughlin announced Friday on X. .

“It came about because Ron (Anderson) has three jockeys and he was only allowed two, so he reached out to me a few days ago and said ywould you be interested in Johnny,” said McLaughlin, reached by the TDN Friday morning. “He said he thought we’d be a good match. After I talked to Luis, I said I said i’d be honored to take him.”

Saez has won 93 races at over $9 million in earnings this year, riding primarily at Churchill Downs. He will spend the summer at Saratoga where he won the GI Belmont S. aboard Dornoch (Good Magic) this past weekend, McLaughlin said.

Velazquez, riding on the New York circuit, has won 46 races and over $5 million. He will also spend the summer in Saratoga.

“I’m honored to have both of them,” said McLaughlin. “They’re both great riders and great people.”

Honored to announce I am now representing @ljlmvel in addition to @luissaezpty!
