Jamie Theriot was among the jockeys signing autographs to raise money
for injured Chicago riders Rene Douglas and Michael Straight on Labor
Day weekend at Saratoga when a man approached the table.
“That's a shame, Jamie,” Theriot said the man told him. “You sitting
here and still walking, and you freaking paralyzed Rene Douglas.”
has been that kind of summer for Theriot since Douglas' legs were
paralyzed when he fell from his horse in a race at Arlington Park in
May. Theriot has tried to do his best and block out the critics.
