ARLINGTON MILLION

Contact: Cindy Guagenti, BWR Public Relations, 310-550-7776

Gary Stevens recovering from collapsed lung

Hall of fame jockey, Gary Stevens, was injured Saturday while racing in the Arlington Million at Arlington Park outside of Chicago. He was taken to a nearby hospital and diagnosed with a collapsed lung after he fell from his mount, Storming Home. However, doctors say the prognosis is excellent and he should be leaving the hospital in the next few days.

Stevens is currently starring as jockey George Woolf in the critically acclaimed Universal film "Seabiscuit." Stevens, winner of over 4,500 races in his career, recently returned to racing following production on the film and has since had several wins including four major stakes races. He won the Santa Anita Derby in Santa Anita, California and the Jim Murray and Charlie Whittingham Handicaps at Hollywood Park also aboard Storming Home. He is still expected to ride Storming Home in the Breeder's Cup in October at Santa Anita.

In the Arlington Million, Storming Home actually crossed the finish line first but was disqualified for interference and subsequently placed in fourth. No horses or other jockeys were injured in the race.
