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.

"I sure like good home-cooked Mexican food," Paulson said. Shortly after that meal a few weeks ago, Paulson and Valenzuela made a deal that obligates the 29-year-old jockey to the aerospace executive's horses for the coming year.
