Stevens Remains Young at Heart

Gary Stevens couldn’t be happier with the revival of his Hall of Fame career. He returned to riding at the age of 50 last January after a seven-year retirement.

“We’re tickled to death,” Stevens said, referring to his agent, Craig O’Bryan. “With the horses I’m riding and the way things have gone, winning some major races this year (specifically the Preakness on Oxbow for longtime patron and fellow Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas), it’s been a lot of fun.

“With the Breeders’ Cup and the prep races coming, we’re pretty well armed right now.”

One potent piece of ammunition Stevens has in his holster is Beholder, Eclipse Award winner as champion 2-year-old filly of 2012. Stevens rides the 3-year-old filly owned by B. Wayne Hughes in Saturday’s Win and You’re In Zenyatta Stakes, a major prep for the $2 million Distaff on Nov. 1.

“She gave me an unbelievable feeling,” Stevens said, speaking of his 2 ¾-length victory in the Torrey Pines at Del Mar on Sept. 1. “It was like driving a brand new Ferrari for the first time.”
