Being a jockey requires courage, racing intelligence, and a specific touch – among many other qualities. It's a hazardous job with many peaks and valleys. As part of the fifth annual Breeders' Cup or Bust, we are turning the spotlight on both the human and equine athletes that are essential to the sport we cherish.
As part of our trip to the 2013 Breeders' Cup World Championships, we spent the day with one of the many jockeys who give their all every day in a dangerous game. Among the causes supported by Breeders' Cup or Bust and Breeders' Cup Charities is the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund. Please take time to appreciate what these athletes do and donate to the cause.
