Change of Control provided Colby Hernandez with his first Keeneland stakes victory.
When two siblings ride stakes winners at a track on the same card, more often than not it is the dynamic duo of Irad Ortiz Jr. and his brother, Jose—both Eclipse Award-winning jockeys.
But they aren’t the ones. On April 10 at Keeneland, brothers Brian Hernandez Jr. and younger brother, Colby, managed the unique accomplishment. Colby notched his first Keeneland stakes win on Change of Control in the $100,000 Giant’s Causeway Stakes, a half-hour before Brian recorded his 12th Keeneland stakes triumph when he rode King Fury to victory in the $200,000 Stonestreet Lexington Stakes (G3).
It wasn’t the first time the two won stakes on a specific card, suspects Brian, the elder of the two.
