Personal Information
Among the top drivers in professional chuckwagon racing today, Codey had an outstanding 2018 season that saw him qualify for two championship final heats at the Medicine Hat Stampede and the Battle of the North. Nicknamed “The Hound,” Codey posted 16 top ten runs including a first place run at the Battle of the North and 4 runs that cracked the top five. He placed in the top ten overall at 5 shows, with a second-place aggregate finish at the Medicine Hat Stampede being his best of 2018. Codey’s best year to date came in 2016 when he had a horse named to the WPCA Equine Outfit Of Excellence and placed a career best fourth place in the World Standings. In 2014 Codey received the Herman Flad Memorial Award as the WPCA's Most Improved Driver and won the Ralph Vigen Memorial Award for being the aggregate winner at the Grande Prairie Stompede. 2012 saw Codey win the Calgary Stampede's Orville Strandquist Memorial Award for Top Rookie Driver and received the WPCA’s prestigious Chuckwagon Person of the Year Award. Codey was the WPCA’s Top Rookie Driver in 2007, and received the Kenn Borek Memorial Award for most sportsmanlike driver at the Battle of the North the same year. A 3rd generation driver, Codey drove his first chariot race at age 10, started driving pony chuckwagons at age 16 where he won 10 pony chuckwagon show championships prior to driving thoroughbred chuckwagons in 2007. His move to the big wagons was prompted by the support from his sister and father - both pony chuckwagon drivers, who have each traded in their pony outfits to assist Codey with his dream of driving big wagons. A former hockey player, Codey played in the elite program with the Notre Dame Hounds of Wilcox, Saskatchewan, and junior hockey with the Cranbrook Colts of the BCJHL. An assistant foreman with Enerplus Resources in the off season, Codey enjoys hunting and fishing in his spare time. Codey and his wife Michelle have 2 children - Kolby and Kassie, and make their home near Eckville, Alberta.
