Jenna Joubert

JENNA JOUBERT

Born: August 2, 1984 in St. Louis Park, Minn.

 

• The Minnesota native’s close-knit family owned race horses and she grew up in the game. She
even galloped horses to pay for her college education. She chose to attend the University of
Oklahoma, because that was a place where she could gallop throughout the winter.
• After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Economics, Joubert worked for trainer, Noel Hickey, a
close family friend. She galloped horses for Hickey in Ocala, Fla. It was while working with him that
Joubert really got started in racing.
• Joubert’s jockey career began in 2007 at Canterbury Park in Minn., which was also the place of her
first win aboard Marina Nolan. Her first career stakes win – the 2009 John B. Campbell at Laurel
Park - was also the first one for eventual multiple Grade 1 winner Richard’s Kid.
• Her circuit currently is Oaklawn, Prairie Meadows and Remington Park. This will be her fourth winter in Hot Springs.
