Hi,

A 'greaser' is a very derogatory term for a person of Mexican origin.

A jockey rides a horse in a race, but more context is needed to see if that is the meaning here.

2. I never have gotten over that.

'To get over something'means to reconcile yourself to some kind of setback and continue with your life.
3. He can put about anyone out when he sets his head to it.

'To put someone out' means 'to knock them unconscious'. ie hit them hard.

4. His ring, which he had rolled a drunk senior to get, was back on his fnger.

'To roll someone' - to steal from them by attacking them

5. That's the greaser that jockeys for the Slash J sometimes

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Clive - you are providing answers to a story you have apparently never read! In The Outsiders, a greaser is the name of a kid who lives on the poor, east side of town, in the very "white" midwestern city where they live. Ponyboy and his friends are all "greasers," and they fight with the "socs" (a.k.a. "socials") who are the rich kids living on the west side.

"Dally jockeys for the Slash J" means that Dally rides race-horses at the rodeo. People gamble on these races to make money. The Slash J is a person or group of people who hire Dally to race their horses.
Could possibly mean that he is a disc jockey at a local radio station "Slash J."
Thank u it's really help me to fathom that phrase:)
