Now the 40-year-old jockey has been elected to the National Museum of Racing's Hall of Fame, an honor he called "amazing." "I'm just speechless. I'm shaking like a leaf," Prado said. "Just to be nominated for the Hall of Fame among all my peers was great. To win is amazing."

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Jockeys will be allowed to wear advertising and union patches on their pants in the Kentucky Derby and other races in the state, a judge ruled yesterday. The ruling averted a possible showdown between jockeys and racing officials during the country's most-watched race tomorrow at Churchill Downs. U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II decided two cases filed by jockeys against the Kentucky Horse Racing Authority. The authority, a newly formed agency that regulates racing here, had a rule forbidding jockeys to wear advertising or logos on their riding attire.
