For decades, jockeys at Los Alamitos Race Course believed reaching the 200-win plateau in a single season was about as possible as someone hitting more home runs than the major league-record 61 hit by Roger Maris in 1961. Quarter horse jockey Eddie Garcia is off to a great start, much like the St. Louis Cardinals' Mark McGwire, who has 33 home runs this season. Garcia, 33, is running away with the track's jockey standings with 67 victories.

Eddie Garcia, the leading jockey at the Los Alamitos meeting that ended last Saturday and the fifth-ranking quarter horse rider in the country, has been suspended for a year and fined $2,000 after being caught with two electrical prodding devices in his possession minutes before a race last week. Garcia is the second top-ranking quarter horse jockey to be caught with the devices--known at the track as batteries or machines--in California this year.

When Eddie Garcia was growing up near Guadalajara, Mexico, it didn't take the future jockey very long to realize he preferred horses to bull riding, his family's other sporting interest. Garcia's father and uncle worked with horses and bulls, but his three older brothers concentrated on horses. The younger Garcia followed in their footsteps and today is one of the nation's leading quarter horse riders.
