“It was an absolutely embarrassing mistake,” he said. “All of us are ashamed of it and are working to put protocols in place where something like this can never happen again. I’ve already reached out to the owners, and I’m going to make it right with them as well. There really isn’t much more to say . . . I want to hide from now until the end of time, or when everyone forgets.”


I want to know how the track identifier missed this.

Wow. And one's a mare and the other a gelding. What a screw up.

This happened at Mahoning Valley a few years ago too, when a gelding won a filly/mare race. Iirc- the 2 were stabled next to each other and the groom got the wrong horse ready.

stark wrote:CYPRESS, Calif. – Jimmy Barnes, the longtime assistant to Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, was being treated for a fractured pelvis on Sunday after being unseated from the stable pony earlier in the day.

“He stumbled,” Baffert said. “The pony lost his footing. He just went down. It was a freaky thing.”

It was not immediately known how long Barnes would be hospitalized.

Barnes has been an integral part of Baffert’s team for nearly two decades, often traveling around the nation – and to Dubai – with the stable’s leading horses. In 2015, he accompanied American Pharoah to Oaklawn Park for a win in the Arkansas Derby and was alongside the colt through a sweep of the Triple Crown.

Barnes, 58, has worked for Baffert since November 1998.

Jimmy still in ICU. Surgery went well. 6-8 week recovery
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Jose Ortiz complaining of knee pain after Belmont spill

Jose Ortiz, the leading jockey in North America in purse money this year, was taken to a Long Island hospital to have his left knee examined after being involved in a spill in Wednesday’s ninth race at Belmont Park.

Ortiz was complaining of pain in his knee when he tried to flex it, according to a nurse at Belmont Park’s First-Aid department. Ortiz had his knee and ankle wrapped up as he was being wheeled on a gurney out of First Aid and to an ambulance. The ankle was swollen, but he was not complaining of pain, the nurse said.

Ortiz was aboard Submit, a 3-year-old filly trained by Christophe Clement making her fourth career start, this one in a maiden $40,000 claiming turf race.

In the stretch, Submit was making a belated run toward the leaders when she took a misstep, suffering a cannon bone fracture to her left foreleg. She was euthanized on track.

Jockey Clawson, after concussion, will no longer ride races

Only 15 months after it began, the jockey career of Katie Clawson has come to an end, at least temporarily, perhaps permanently.

Clawson, 20, said Friday she would no longer ride races and was resuming work as an exercise rider. Clawson said she had taken a job galloping horses for trainer Mike Maker.

I'm sorry to read this, as I thought she is a very talented rider. But I don't blame her for stepping back from riding races.
The reality is that riding racehorses, like so many other contact sports, comes with the risk of repeated concussions. With what we know now about CTE...and learning more all the time...even very young athletes can suffer the horrible, long-term consequences of head injuries. :(

Speaking of concussions....

Keeneland Initiates Concussion Protocol for Jockeys
Will require jockeys competing to complete a baseline concussion assessment.
Keeneland will require jockeys competing in the 2017 fall meet, which begins Oct. 6, to complete a baseline concussion assessment prior to being allowed to ride. Keeneland is among the first racetracks in the United States to establish concussion management and return to participation protocol.

Read more: https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing ... or-jockeys

It's about time, and I hope other tracks will follow Keeneland's lead in this matter.
You know your sport is falling behind the times when even the PBR started concussion protocols with baseline exams well before horse racing. :roll:
