Ex-Jockey Tom Chapman in "Ten Wild Rides" on Dateline NBC

Tom Chapman

The dangerous world of jockeys will be spotlighted in "Ten Wild Rides" airing on Dateline NBC Sunday, Feb. 15, at 7:00 PM (pt). The segment includes a clip of a spill involving ex-jockey and now equine artist Tom Chapman. It also includes a skier encountering an avalanche and a camping trip in the woods of Southwestern Virginia that turns into a nightmare.

The footage on Chapman was produced by his son, Matt. It involves an accident at Golden Gate Fields on Feb. 3, 1989, in which Chapman rode Current Lady for Fordell Fierce.

Tom Chapman adds, "Yes that was taken at Bay Meadows. We were waiting for a photo finish to be posted. As it turned out, we ended up in a dead heat."
