Email

Veteran jockey Shane Sellers posted his first victory in more than a year when he rode heavily favored Uncommon Queen ($3.40) to win the sixth race by nine lengths Wednesday at Churchill Downs. Sellers, who has won more than 3,700 races, returned to riding Oct. 23 at Keeneland after having been away nearly a year after a serious knee injury in Dec. 2000 in a post parade accident at the Fair Grounds. Sellers attempted and abandoned a brief comeback at the 2001 Arlington Park summer meet.
