Trainer Bio

Grew up in Maurice, Louisiana, a town south of Lafayette - population of  967 as of 2011.

He graduated from Louisiana Tech with a degree in animal science.  He became an assistant to trainer Charlie Hardy in the late 1980s before striking out on his own in 1991. These days, Desormeaux keeps a solid number of 20 horses in training at Fair Grounds while racing at all Louisiana tracks, Kentucky and California.

Earned his first Graded winner when I’ve Struck A Nerve won the G2 Risen Star Stakes at the Fair Grounds going off at odds of 135-1. The win put the colt on the Derby trail for Keith and owner, Matt Bryan, an oil distribution businessman from Dallas.

Desormeaux has trained a handful of stakes winners (see top ten tab) including Tensas Harbor, winner  of 2012 Louisiana Cup Oaks.  Keith has earned over 460 career wins and his horses have earned $9.6 million.  

Brother, Kent Desormeaux has won three Kentucky Derbies.
