Mike Smith was born in Roswell, New Mexico, August 10, 1965. Smith began riding races in New Mexico at age 11. Shortly after launching his licensed career in 1982 at age 16, he won his first race with Forever Man at Santa Fe in New Mexico. Mike Smith will always be remembered as the jockey of Zenyatta, the 2010 Horse of the Year. Smith rode the superstar mare in 17 of her 20 races. Zenyatta and Smith were victorious in 16 of those 17 races, with their only loss being a second place finish in the 2010 Breeders' Cup Classic, Zenyatta's last race. This year, Smith and Songbird have won all seven of their starts, including four Grade 1 stakes, to push Songbird's career record to a perfect 11-for-11 heading into October 2016. Smith has been aboard Songbird for all of her races.
