Jockeys: Docu about Seven Superstars Pros

The exciting horse racing show JOCKEYS arriving on DVD June 30 from Animal Planet and Genius Products.

Exposing the most dangerous two minutes in sports, the docu brings viewers into a world of ferocious rivalries, fierce bonds and extraordinary risk.

From a hall of fame icon, to a young hotshot, to a breakout female star dominating the tracks, audiences get to know the diverse lives of seven superstar jockeys, their personalities, their strengths and flaws, each determined to cross the finish line first every time.  Filmed during the 30-day course of the prestigious Oak Tree Meet at the Santa Anita Race Track in California, JOCKEYS captures the action while sharing the thrill of victory and agony of defeat.

Risking life for a chance to make history, each 112-pound jockey mounted atop a 1,200-pound thoroughbred aims to win a share of the more than $35 million dollars in purse money. Documenting big dreams and egos in 14 episodes on two discs, JOCKEYS showcases everything from pre-race jitters to the thrill of crossing the finish line as well as all the excitement and heartbreak in between.
