Program Description

Puerto Rican jockey Dyn Panell was a top rider at Boston's Suffolk Downs for much of the 2001 horse-racing season. But at New Hampshire's Rockingham Park, the 21 year-old Panell is in fifth place. Dyn is a seasoned rider with over four hundred wins under his belt, but an old back injury is reducing his number of victories. Hoping to rescue his career in the few weeks remaining in the summer meet, Panell sets his sights on a couple of big races. It is a must win situation against tough odds.
