Cherie DeVaux went out on her own in the spring of 2018 after spending nearly eight years as an assistant to Eclipse Award-winning trainer Chad Brown. Prior to working for Brown, she spent five years working for trainer Chuck Simon.
A Saratoga-area native, DeVaux grew up in racing and her family is heavily involved with harness horses. After studying pre-med in college, she decided to pursue a life with horses.
DeVaux was instrumental in champion Lady Eli’s return to racing after a serious foot injury sidelined the filly for over a year.
DeVaux is married to bloodstock agent David Ingordo.
