Theriot appreciates every ride

Jamie Theriot said he would drop everything and travel to Florida to explain his regrets, share his feelings and offer his hand -- if only Rene Douglas would speak to him. The jockeys haven't spoken to each other since it happened, 19 months ago at Arlington Park near Chicago: That horrific spill that left Douglas in a wheelchair and Theriot in a swale.


Six weeks ago, Theriot rode two Breeders' Cup winners, taking his career to higher ground. That low of 19 months ago drained him of his desire; the high filled him with appreciation. Horse racing's extremes -- Theriot stood before them as if they were showers he was taking.


These past two years and especially these extremes have changed him, cleansed him of indifference, altered and widened his perspective. And at 31, Theriot is ready to take his rightful place among the nation's top jockeys.


"He's a complete rider," trainer Bret Calhoun said about Theriot. "He can ride any kind of horse in any kind of race. And he doesn't give anybody a free pass."
