Keys to Success according to MSNBC:

"A fiery competitor and insightful analyst of pace and tactics, Stevens has returned to fly high again. Although he is riding fewer races than he once did, his skills in the saddle have not been diminished by his health struggles. He is a master at timing the final run and getting his mount to put its nose on the wire first, as he did when winning the 1998 Kentucky Derby on Silver Charm."
