Part 2: PRE-RACE
"An appreciation of the trainer's advice, knowledge of all your racing
equipment and a serious effort to get the feel of your horse require the jock's
fullest attention during the post parade."
Part 3: THE START
"The first 10 seconds of a race can often be as decisive as the last 10
seconds. But to win this first battle for position you have got to know just
how to get your horse away from the gate."
Part 4: THE WHIP
"You should hit a race horse only when you need to. But when that time
comes you get the best results if you can change the whip flawlessly and
effortlessly from hand to hand in full flight."
Part 5: THE FINISH
"Hand riding—that all-out and exhausting concentration of pushing in
complete rhythm with your horse as hard as your power will permit you—is the
hardest thing I know of in race riding."
