Gary Stevens~~shown being trampled near to death illustrates just how terrifyingly dangerous is the sport of Kings.~~
These brave lads risk life and limb every time they get up on one of these magnificent animals and we marvel at their astounding courage~~
Thankfully, Gary survived, and this year, came back from retirement to ride the brilliant Oxbow to victory in the Preakness Stakes–Group-1~~at Pimlico in Baltimore–second leg of the 2013 Triple Crown festival~~
Rejoice and Glad!!
