Jockeys: Horse Racing, Thoroughbreds, Racehorses - Animal Planet
Just discovered this show - haven't seen it yet, but definitely looks interesting, and the web site has lots of info about the industry. There's a good review from the NTRA here, and some colorful wallpaper here. (Maybe I can persuade the library to get the DVD of the first season; second season is just starting.)
Here's a good story about the current jockey to beat - Calvin Borel: How a Common Man Rode to Greatness. Plus photos and video of his latest win, a thrilling ride on Rachel Alexandra at Saratoga yesterday, the first filly to win the Woodward Stakes! And just one more link - a very touching blog about a dad and his daughter rooting for Rachel.
