Panamanian paralyzed jockey Rene Douglas talks to a reporter at the Meydan Racecourse hotel in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Friday, March 29, 2013. It had been nearly four years since the Panamanian jockey was paralyzed when his horse fell on top of him at Arlington Park and this week was the first time he had been to a track. A winner of more than 3,600 races, Douglas admitted his mind drifted to his 27-year career including the 1996 Belmont Stakes on Editor’s Note but also his new life as co-owner of Private Zone which races at Meydan in Saturday’s $2 million Dubai Golden Shaheen.(AP Photo/Kamran Jebreili)
