Stevens Getting Feet Wet at Santa Anita

Jockey Gary Stevens

With one win, one second and one third from eight mounts in his comeback after a seven-year absence, 49-year-old Gary Stevens is riding like he hasn’t missed a beat.

“I feel good and we’re just getting our feet wet,” said the Hall of Fame jockey, who also provides expert analysis for HRTV and NBC-TV. “It’s all good.”

Stevens, who owns a home in Louisville, told the Louisville Courier-Journal’s Eclipse Award winner turf writer Jennie Rees that he will ride the full meet at Keeneland when the Lexington track opens on April 5 and is “almost definite” to ride at Churchill Downs after Keeneland.

“I always go back to Kentucky right after the Santa Anita Derby (a race Stevens has won a record nine times; it will be run this year on April 6) and I plan to do the same thing this year,” Stevens told Rees.
