LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Jockeys Robby Albarado and Corey Lanerie, who have combined for more than 9,000 wins, both have split with their longtime agents and will have new representation when Keeneland starts its 15-day spring meet April 7.

Albarado has hired Ronnie Ebanks to replace Lenny Pike Jr., who in turn now will work for Lanerie. Pike replaces Terry Miller, who has had Lanerie’s book in recent years, most recently at Gulfstream Park.

Albarado, 43, rode his 5,000th winner on Jan. 22 at Fair Grounds and is a four-time leading rider at Keeneland. He and Pike had been a team for more than 20 years, not counting several temporary splits, dating to the mid-1990s in Chicago.

Lanerie, 42, rode his 4,000th winner last July at Ellis Park. He topped the Keeneland standings at the 2015 fall meet and is a 12-time leading rider at Churchill Downs.
