The Prayer

Just after the paddock call for “riders up”, young jockey Alan Garcia is captured in a private moment. Minutes later his mount, Cocalero, stumbles badly out of the gate almost throwing Garcia to the ground. Horse racing is recognized as one of the most dangerous sports in the world. It is no wonder that superstition and prayers for protection are common practices around the racetrack.
