Morning Track Stars: Damien Rock

"As the rest of the world remains dark and still, exercise riders arise and head to work. Their morning is not spent in an office, doing paperwork or typing on a computer. Their morning is spent on the backs of Thoroughbreds - animals much bigger than themselves, creatures with minds of their own, large beings that could injure a rider in the blink of an eye. Regardless, these riders work together with these horses as a crucial part of the team that prepares the equine athletes for each race. They do not receive the same recognition that the riders of the afternoon - jockeys - do, nor do they garner the attention that the owners, trainers, or horses do. Despite this and the adversity they face, exercise riders lay it all on the line. For this, they deserve respect.

Please enjoy my second installment of a new series featuring exercise riders ("Morning Track Stars"), featuring Damien Rock, Wise Dan's regular rider. . ."
