SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Dylan Davis just graduated from Saratoga Springs High School and now he is racing with the pros at Saratoga Race Course.

The 18-year-old tells NEWS10 he is making horse racing his career because he loves horses and also because he hopes to follow in the footsteps of his famous father, now-retired jockey Robbie Davis.

Dylan says that before horse racing he was interested in dirt bike racing, but after having talked with his father, he thought he would try being a jockey.

It must run in the family; Dylan's sister Jaclyn is also a jockey.
