John Henry, thoroughbred racing's all-time money winner, galloped yesterday and might be able to compete in the $2 million Breeders' Cup. The 9-year-old horse had apparently injured his left foreleg during a workout Sunday and was questionable for the Nov. 10 race.
"He looked real good," said trainer Ron McAnally after the workout. "I'd say it was 60-40 in favor that he will run in the Breeders' Cup."
However, he said if John Henry misses a final workout planned this weekend, "he will miss the race" . . .

Former riding champion Jesse Davidson, one of five jockeys convicted of fixing a triple race in 1975, will appeal last April's decision of the Maryland Racing Commission refusing to reinstate him as a jockey.
Davidson, 44, is licensed as an exercise rider and is eligible for a license as a trainer. But the commission, in a 4-to-1 decision, refused to allow him to ride.
