Aqueduct: Maragh will miss two weeks after spill
OZONE PARK, N.Y. – Jockey Rajiv Maragh will be out a minimum of two weeks due to injuries suffered in a spill at Aqueduct on Monday.
According to agent Matt Muzikar, Maragh was diagnosed with a slight fracture of his T-3 vertebrae which is behind the rib cage and up around the shoulder blades. While he was released from North Shore University Hospital on Tuesday afternoon, doctors would not clear him to ride when racing resumes at Aqueduct on Friday.
“They want to re-evaluate him in two weeks,” Muzikar said.
Maragh was aboard Lady of Gold, who finished fourth behind Squeal in Monday’s second race, a maiden event for 2-year-old fillies.
After the wire, Squeal fell. Lady of Gold jumped over Squeal, and in the process unseated Maragh, who landed hard on the ground. Maragh was transported by ambulance to North Shore and was kept overnight for observation. An MRI revealed the fracture.
Maragh, 27, won 141 races from 1,222 mounts in 2012 and ranked 14th in purse earnings nationally with $10,002,719. He won two Breeders’ Cup races including the Filly and Mare Sprint aboard Groupie Doll. He was off to a 10-for-50 start at Aqueduct’s inner track meet.
Lady of Gold, meanwhile, was reported by trainer Phil Serpe to have escaped the incident without a scratch.
Squeal, however, underwent surgery Tuesday at New Bolton to repair significant muscle tissue damage to the chest cavity, according to Neil Poznansky, the New York-based assistant to trainer Bill Mott.
“They did surgery on her, they stitched her up, [the] prognosis is she’ll be back in training in six months,” Poznansky said. “They were very happy with the way the surgery went, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed.”
Berni,George,you two need to find another past time, all that talk is just jibberish and this is not 1950. The both of you sound like miserable old men that only spread missery. Both of you get a life and leave the Sport Of Kings alone.
Did ya know they evicted me from a Race Track for Posting .RACE FIXING NEWS on a Punters Bulletin Board ? State police were called ,lol YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW they FIX RACES ....and this Rajiv has robbed more $$ than Jean Cruguet ...just pay back Rajiv ...more to come ..
that Camel Jockey has pulled more Honest betting Bucks OFF the Board ...than anyone , just another Thief getting his Just Reward .....ever watch their hands in a race ? you Moles need a race caller ? Racing is DEAD...
NYRA should install an all-weather surface for the inner track. Not holding my breath.
Looks like Poznansky is a better assistant trainer trainer than jockey.
Let's hope there isn't anything wrong with the track. On 3 different occasions yesterday horses went down galloping out after the race entering the clubhouse turn.
Take it slow Raji... Make your comeback a good one.
Get well R.M good to hear the horses are gonna be fine. Dominguez had the title locked up before the winter meet began.
Tough break for R.M. Now it's between Irad and Ramon.Just sayin.
