Stevens Shoots Down Comeback Rumors

Jockey Gary Stevens

Gary Stevens has dashed speculation that he would resume his riding career after an absence of seven years.

“As far as a comeback, I don’t know who’s spreading these rumors . . . I will be working for HRTV on opening day. That’s the only comment I have,” said the retired Hall of Fame jockey, who turns 50 next March 6.

Stevens, a three-time Kentucky Derby winner who rode for 27 years, announced his retirement on Nov. 27, 2005.

Stevens has been working horses recently at the Pegasus Training and Equine Rehabilitation Center in Redmond, Washington, and reportedly has his weight down to 122 pounds. The Pegasus operation is overseen by Stevens’ longtime friend, trainer Mike Puhich.
