Rider Looks to 2010

Anthony Stephen is a 36-year-old horse jockey who’s making a comeback. A graduate of the Trinidad jockey school, he had four consecutive sweeps of the overall title in his native country during the early 90s. But Stephen paused his promising career when his and his wife found themselves with two profoundly deaf children due to a previously unknown genetic incompatibility between them. After spending several years focusing on his children and getting them cochlear implants, Stephen is now in Florida, preparing for a full return to the sport at the first of the year.
