Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all !
It is a little after 2:00 am in California. I am not up to wait for Santa to come down my chimney. I have to sleep sitting up in a chair tonight, so i have been awake quite a bit. About 12 hours ago I had reconstructive nose surgery . A month ago it was broken when I fell during a race at Hollywood Park and was struck in the face by a horse hoof . I have not been able to breathe from it since. So on Christmas Eve Dr Cole rebroke my nose, reset it and repaired my deviated septums . I look like I was in the ring with Sugar Shane Mosley. Tomorrow is opening day at Santa Anita . Although I look bad, I will ride 4 horses. I'm not going to win a beauty contest, but I hope I can win some races. Until then, I want to win some races on this game. I enjoy playing and watching how well all of you have been doing. I'm very impressed. Keep up the good riding.
On february 6th a new show will begin on the Animal Planet. It is called Jockey's. Several of us were followed, and filmed on and off the track for 6 weeks. It is a 12 episode series showing the day in the life of a jockey. You can go to Animal Planet.com and click on the show title. From there you can click on a link and see a 20 minute preview. I hope you will all watch the show. I look forward to hearing your comments and answering your questions. Until then, I hope all of you enjoy the holidays. May 2009 be a happy and healthy year for all of us.
Live Your Dreams !
