Lone Star: McNeils featured at Jockeys & Java


Jockey Tony McNeil and his sons, jockeys Bryan and Erik McNeil, will be the special guests at the Jockeys & Java program that starts at about 8:30 a.m. Saturday morning in the grandstand area at Lone Star Park. The free morning workout, interview and barn tour program is hosted by track announcer John Lies.

The McNeils accomplished a rare feat May 28 at Lone Star, when all three jockeys won a race on the card. Bryan, 27, won the first; Tony, 54, took the fourth; and Erik, 24, captured the eighth. Following the interview with the McNeils, which will start around 9 a.m., there will be a barn tour of the stables of trainers J.R. Caldwell and Dallas Keen.

Saturday afternoon is $1 Day at Lone Star, where there will be $1 admission, hot dogs and sodas.
