COREY Brown was born to ride. His grandfather Trevor and father Jack were both successful jockeys in the northern NSW region but Corey wasn't always so sure about his future destiny.
His parents divorced when he was a young age and he was essentially raised by his Mother but his father, who by then was working as a mechanic was close by.
Corey is fond of recalling the moment when he made his career choice. ``Dad said there were two things he could teach me to do change tyres or become a jockey. Needless to say, tyres didn't appeal,'' Corey says.
