Per DRF ... The official diagnosis on Alonso is that he has a hairline fracture in his tailbone ... He should be out 6 weeks ...

Julien's status is supposed to be updated soon ...

And per someone who commented on the article ... They said they spoke with people on the backside at Fairplex who said NOTH of the horses are ok ... Just a bit sore.

WHEW!!! For all involved! :)

I reinjured (but didn't fracture) my tailbone 8 years ago, and it is still very uncomfortable if I sit for too long. Tailbone injuries are something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy- they hurt a lot and then when people find out your injury there are the inevitable "broken butt" jokes and laughs... Funny for the joke tellers, but not so funny when you are trying to return to work after a two week vacation spent basically prone :lol:

Wow! That's awesome, and pretty incredible. It looked bad when it happened.

Monmouth Park - Race 8 today - Flatout Royal broke down and HOV Lane then fell over him. :( Flatout Royal broke through the rail while rolling and HOV Lane appeared to jump up but be severely injured. Can anyone confirm?

Looked terrible and TVG advised that the jockey was being treated for a wrist injury and the filly was confirmed to have "broken down" so i'm assuming she was euthanized on track.

It was actually race #10, and the chart states that Flatout Royal broke down, which almost always means that the horse is gone. I saw it and it looked really bad, not sure about Hov Lane, but I would venture to say that their was some type of injury to say the least.
