Apparently the only movement by the tracks was to extend their deadline, which had been Friday.

Breakage? Until a couple of weeks ago, Gary Stevens thought that was what happened when a jockey went down in a spill and was crushed by the horse. "I've been in racing most of my life," said Stevens, who was grooming horses as an 8-year-old in 1971. "But until I went to that meeting at Hollywood Park, this breakage stuff was something I'd never heard of." That meeting was in late November, another in a series between the Jockeys' Guild and the Thoroughbred Racing Assns.
