"I feel great. I know I'll have to ride with some pain but I'm looking forward to another 15 to 20 years on the track," Sellers said. "I've been working toward a comeback basically since I was injured. I've worked on my knee as well as getting my weight back down. I'm very thankful that trainers are still willing to take a chance on me."Sellers said Wednesday's mount will be his only one at Keeneland, but he looks forward to the opening of the Churchill Downs Fall meet.
"I'm excited about Churchill opening. I'm just going to ride sparingly and work my back to four, five, six, or mounts per day," the rider said.
