First Winner For Gary Stevens In 7 Years
It hasn't taken Hall Of Fame jockey Gary Stevens long to display his riding ability. Retired since 2005, the former champion hoop and HRTV racing analyst has officially been back in the saddle for just a week, and on Saturday scored in the opening race of the day at Santa Anita in California aboard $6 chance Branding, with an emphatic 2.5-lengths margin. Stevens, whose career victories include 3 Kentucky Derbies & 8 Breeders' Cups, took his win record to 4,889.
