US academy schools local jockeys

The move follows cut of the number of available foreign jockeys by US immigration laws.

    The Belmont Stakes is being held on Saturday and as part of the triple crown of US horse racing, it attracts millions of viewers.

    Many of the jockeys are recruited from Latin America, but a school in the US is trying to change that.
