Stevens Exercising Many Good Horses

Stevens

It was business as usual for Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens Monday morning, working horses as he continues his comeback after a seven-year absence from the saddle.

“I’m working a lot of good horses,” said Stevens, who turns 50 on March 6. “The new (condition) book came out and we’re collecting horses slowly but surely. I’ve been on horses I’m excited about riding in the afternoons.”

As for previous reports that he would ride at Santa Anita until Keeneland opens in early April, Stevens cautioned not to bet the rent money, so to speak.

“This is quoted from me,” Stevens said, “as everybody knows, even Ray Paulick said it, ‘Stevens, he can change his mind five times in a week,’ so I’ll let the horses dictate where I go.”

This fellow IS a class act, coming back to Longacres for the last race they evey held. Riding a horse from Idaho that his father shipped in, the race went without a caller for the first and only time with Gary Henson (son of the great caller from Hollywood Park) turning off his mike. Stayed around for a long time signing autographs and posing for photos. Bad knees never turn good...Even joint replacements are not like the real thing
Suspense*
Gary...Enough suspend mate..come on. Tell us of this special colt that you may ride this year or next year?
