Stevens Back In Saddle For First Post-Retirement Derby

Stevens Back In Saddle For First Post-Retirement Derby

Former jockey turned broadcaster is once again making a run at the roses.
Kentucky Derby 139 is less than a week away now as a former jockey turned broadcaster will mount his first Derby horse since retiring back in 2005.

Gary Stevens returned to racing this January at Santa Anita and says his post-retirement career has gone better than expected.

Now at age 50, Stevens wants to once again win the Run for the Roses.  A race he's won three times, twice with trainer D. Wayne Lukas on Winning Colors in 1988 and again aboard Thunder Gulch in 1995.

On Saturday, the two will team up again with Oxbow...for another shot at racing greatness at Churchill Downs.

Hear from Stevens on what he missed and what he wants to accomplish by coming back in the video.

Plus Lukas on trusting the veteran jockey who could make him the oldest trainer to win the Derby at age 70.
