Editorial Reviews

Animal Planet brings viewers into a world dominated by ferocious rivalries, fierce bonds and extraordinary risk as it documents the behind-the-scenes lives of jockeys and their magnificent racehorses. It is a world ruled by 112 lb. men (or less) on 1,200 lb. Thoroughbreds - equipped with oversized personalities and big dreams. JOCKEYS follows numerous athletes as they compete amongst each other during the course of a 30-day racing season.
Months of preparation go into each one-to-two-minute race, and jockeys ride as many as 10 races a day with an ambulance traveling at high speeds right behind the field of horses. They risk life and limb knowing that virtually every year, an average of two jockeys die while riding races in North America. Meet the superstars whose success depends on knocking out the competition. Big winners, who have won horse racing's richest purses, live beside jockeys who have never won a race and struggle to make next month's rent. It is cut-throat competition and cameras follow the action from pre-race jitters to the finish line - and everything in between.

Some consider thoroughbred horse jockeys, pound for pound, the greatest of athletes. I've always agreed, but watching this series, I agree even more. This series (season one, season 2 just started on Animal Planet) follows a group of jockeys at the Oak Tree meet at Santa Anita, which culminates into the Breeders' Cup weekend, one of the richest purse weekends in the world.

The show follows the jockeys as the newcomers and journeymen try to break into the competitive Santa Anita colony, which some of the best jockeys in the world are stationed. We pretty much get to know about a jockeys life: waking up early, visiting stables and exercising horses for the chance to ride later on for that trainer, the constant struggle to maintain weight, the dangers of racing, how carefully they are watched by the stewards so they do not endanger other jockeys or the horses, etc.

Each episode is short, 20 minutes without commercials, and the storylines are addicting - you want to see the result of what the jockeys are trying to accomplish during that episode.

The bonus material is okay, combined, they also only take up only about 20 minutes. The best thing about this dvd is that you can see all the episodes at once one after another, and with no commercials.

Jockeys is a show from Animal Planet. It follows a group of jockeys at the Santa Anna racetrack during the month before the Breeder's Cup. It is a fascinating look into what really goes on behind a horse race. I learned so much. The show is fast paced and is very easy to get addicted to. I made my brother watch the first episode and he hates horses but ended up watching the entire season with me. I feel that the DVD is well worth the money if you enjoy horse racing and or horses. If you are not into the races then you may not enjoy this show. The extra features are really good as well.

This is an exciting look inside the world of a professional jockey. If you are a race fan there are some great moments on this DVD set. Zenyatta is on this one and you get to see Joe Talamo on his way up from the minors. The show is heartbreaking and personal in places. But the one thing that I found disturbing is how frequently they featured horses in jeopardy. It is true that as a race fan, you see a lot of tragedy, but the producers seem to treat every fall as a spectacle to be milked for all it is worth. I suppose they were trying to show the Macho Factor of race riding, to bring in the casual reality TV viewership, but it gives a skewed view of the sport that I found irritating. Other than that, it is a great series and invaluable to anyone interested in the backstretch of a major race track.
