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.
