Ray Cochrane (born June 18, 1957 in Ulster, Ireland) is a retired horse racing jockey and current sports agent.

He was the winning jockey in three of the five British Classic Races: the Oaks Stakes, 1,000 Guineas Stakes on Midway Lady, trained by Ben Hanbury in 1986 and Epsom Derby Stakes for his retained stable of Luca Cumani in 1988. Cochrane was also second in The 2000 Guineas on Chief Singer in 1984 and won the Group 1 July Cup at Newmarket and The Sussex Stakes at Goodwood on the same horse. Ray received a Flat Jockey Special Recognition Lester Award in 2000.

Ray received the Queen's Commendation for Bravery in 2002 for saving the life of fellow jockey Frankie Dettori following a plane crash in 2000.[1]
