Victor Carrasco, the leading rider at the Laurel Park summer meet and the Pimlico spring meet, began getting on horses Monday at Laurel Park for the first time since being injured in a spill at Delaware Park on Aug. 25.

Carrasco broke several bones in his right hand when his mount clipped heels and fell.

Carrasco, the Eclipse Award-winning apprentice rider of 2013, is represented by agent Tom Stift.

“I’m feeling good,” Carrasco said Monday. “I got on two horses for Rodney Jenkins this morning.”

Carrasco is named to ride Saturday at Laurel Park.
