LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Hey, hey, he’s a Monkee, and people say
he’s “horsing around.” The former teen-age heartthrob really goes
for Churchill Downs.
Davy Jones, the 49-year-old former front man for The Monkees —
tuned up the 3-year-old filly Love Dancing for trainer Burk
Kessinger on Friday.
“It’s a thrill,” the 5-foot-4, 128-pound Jones said. “It’s
always been in my blood to do this kind of thing.”
Jones, in Louisville performing in “Grease!”, is no stranger
to horses. He held an amateur steeplechase jockey’s license in his
native England for years and says he’d like to train race horses
