Superstar National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame #jockey "Johnny V" John Velasquez related that, after the #Preakness, he got questions like "Was there any chance you could have stayed on #Bodexpress?"

To answer that, he posted this outrageous BloodHorse photo by Chad Harmon . . . (Do we see the Eclipse Awards in the future for this amazing shot?)

Meanwhile, the #Florida #horsemen are sure glad you're OK, John Velasquez!!

Florida Horsemen, Get Your Students to the Starting Gate! Caballistas de Florida! Trae sus estudiantes para un beca!!

The old stereotype of a lonely backstretcher is the farthest thing from reality! #Florida #Thoroughbred #horseracing has long provided for generations of #horsemen to earn a living and raise their families. And if times have been tough or lonely, horsemen have always taken care of their own.

In keeping with that tradition, the Florida Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association (#FHBPA) is proud to announce that applications for our 2019 Annual Scholarship Program are now open!

Last year, we interviewed and selected 11 of our horsemen’s up-and-coming young scholars, for whom FHBPA funds assisted with tuition to attend Broward College, Florida Gulf Coast University, and the University of South Florida, among others.

The deadline to apply is Monday, July 8.
