Forgive the cliche,but it’s time to saddle up for ride of your life. Especially those who complain of nauseatingly painful Hindi dramarama. Here’s a chance to feel and watch the action,up close and personal,all courtesy Animal Planet.

In a first ever reality series,the channel’s zooming in their cameras on the life and times of jockeys,the cut throat competition they face,their private lives and magnificent horses.

Premiering August 11,the 12-part series will chronicle the lives and careers of seven jockeys and their 1,200-pound horses. Watch the world’s most skilled jockeys and the boldest thoroughbreds line-up at the gate to compete for big bucks or go home broke,risking life and limb in their quest for glory which is USD 35 million!

Animal Planet’s cameras will take you on and off the track – from their homes to the jockey’s room where these athletes prepare themselves physically and emotionally for each race. Says Rahul Johri,SVP & General Manager – India,Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific,“Jockeys will showcase a never-seen-before lives of these fascinating sportsmen both on and off racetrack. The series truly captures the range of emotions of jockeys who risk their lives,all for the love of the sport of horse racing.”

However,the drama doesn’t end at the finish line. Audiences will get to know the lives of these seven jockeys,their personalities,strengths and flaws. Big dreams coupled with even bigger egos,for jockeys (women included too),everything they have is riding on the next 30 days at the Oak Tree Meet,which leads up to some of the most important races of the season – The Breeders’ Cup,two days of high stakes racing that can canonize a rider’s career. So do stay on track,and catch them on Animal Planet,August 11,10pm.
