Paul Nolan is
the prototype rubber-band man. He's bounced back from
career-threatening injuries that would make the toughest individual
consider early retirement.
Five years ago, the
English-born jockey was atop a horse that dislocated a knee at
Canterbury Park in Minnesota. As a result, Nolan spilled and broke
vertebrae in his neck.
Six years ago, he broke his leg.
Fourteen years ago, he suffered a major shoulder injury, and 15 years
ago, he overcame a broken back and a punctured lung.
