From leg up aboard Unbridled Isabel the number 1 of the second race Terry was all business. Cheers from not only me but everyone around the paddock his only focus was totally on the race at hand and who would expect anything different from this professional.
It was one excited crowd that showed up Friday night to see this native hometown jockey of Hazel Park return to the sport of thoroughbred racing. I think even more so for those of us who have worked this industry as well for we know, once horses are in your blood they never leave.
And that’s a good thing. It’s a passion for life and TD wasted no time as he brought his horse across the wire for the win, his first race back. Thousands yelled him home then tears welled up in our eyes so happy for him.
