From an early age, Carson Sullivan, knew he wanted to be a jockey.
He was born into the sport of racing and hung around some of the best riders in the country when he was a kid. But little did he know then, that the road to getting on his first horse, would be so far away.
Sullivan, now an apprentice at Golden Gate Fields, is not the wide eyed teenager you typically see show up at a new track. Actually he is just the opposite. Having just celebrated his 30th birthday, Sullivan brings the maturity of a veteran and it’s paying off.
