Jockeys' Guild Wants Paramedics at Every Track

[i]According to the Jockeys' Guild, Parx Racing did not meet industry standards in terms of the medical personnel it had in place when veteran jockey Jose Luis Flores was involved in a March 19 fall there that claimed his life.

Flores, 57, died March 22 after the accident at Parx when his horse, Love Rules, suffered a catastrophic breakdown. The Guild said the track did not have paramedics in place at the time of the accident; Parx executives declined to comment March 26 on the medical staff in place.

I'm not surprised to read that Flores may have received insufficient emergency medical aid when he was injured. Isn't Parx the track where a horse broke down in a workout, but there was no attending vet on track to quickly attend to the stricken horse? IIRC, she lingered in pain, down on the track, for far too long before a vet could get there. :(

Elliott leaving Parx to help build Caribbean track from ground up

Sunday will be Sam Elliott’s final day as director of racing at Parx. On Tuesday, he will begin a new phase of his career as the chief executive of the Royal Saint Lucia Turf Club, an under-construction racetrack scheduled to open in the eastern Caribbean in 2019.

Elliott, who has been at Parx Racing a little more than three years, is taking a leap of faith that the project will succeed. He has yet to visit Saint Lucia, a 35-mile-long island nation northwest of Barbados and south of Martinique that is much closer to Venezuela than the United States. ... ack-ground
