t's no glamour life for the majority of jockeys trying to make a living on the horse racing circuit. Low pay, high injury rates, weeks away from home and cut-throat competition among jockeys can add up to a lifestyle full of stress.

Janna Sorrells, a 34-year-old riding at Yavapai Downs this summer for the third time in the track's four-year history, has a reputation for being tough. She estimates the number of trips to the hospital at around 40 during her six years as a jockey.
