From the Paulick Report
Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens was on a bench near the stable area racing office Friday morning. Attired in a tee shirt and shorts, the right knee that Stevens had surgically replaced exactly three weeks ago was on display for all to see.
“I’m no different than anyone else. They said the first two weeks (after surgery) would be hell, and they were,” Stevens said. “But I’ve gotten rid of my cane, I’m walking and driving again and that’s the main thing.”
Stevens, 51, has expressed intentions to ride again which would be an achievement believed to be without precedent in racing, especially at major circuit levels.
