Jockey Glenn Corbett Celebrates 4,000th Winner

Veteran reinsman Glenn Corbett rode his 4,000th career winner on Monday at Turf Paradise in Phoenix, Ariz., piloting Arabian Song to victory in the day’s fourth race. According to Equibase, Monday’s victory makes 55-year-old Corbett the 77th North American jockey to reach the 4,000-win milestone.

Corbett rode his first winner at Penn National Racecourse in 1985, and spent the majority of his career alternating between Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Ia., and different venues across the Southwestern part of the United States. Corbett was inducted into the Prairie Meadows Hall of Fame in 2019.

“It’s truly an honor not only to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, but to be inducted standing alongside Alex (Birzer) and Terry (Thompson),” Corbett said in 2019, referring to a pair of riders inducted alongside him. “I’ve been blessed to win so many races in Iowa, to ride some really good horses for some great trainers, and to compete against talented jockeys like Birzer and Thompson.”

The 4,000-win milestone was achieved riding 25,495 starts, and Corbett’s career earnings stand at over $55 million.
