Jockey Chantal Sutherland Failed A Breathalyzer Test Before Her Race

Chantal Sutherland is not unattractive. But the Canadian rider, with more than 10 years of experience, has headed off any Danica-style criticism by actually being quite good at her job. Thankfully for her, that body of work will also prevent her from being known chiefly as the jockey who nearly rode drunk. » 10/10/12 9:50am 10/10/12 9:50am

Ride, Jesse, Ride

We had a crazy, fantastical dream last night. In our fevered slumber, we dreamed that the Rev. Jesse Jackson had teamed with the former agent to Dennis Rodman to represent The Jockeys' Guild. Thats what we get for eating Laotain food just before bedtime. Thankfully, we got a good night's rest, and ... what? It was… » 7/11/06 12:00pm 7/11/06 12:00pm
