Churchill Downs notes: Fox sidelined by ankle fracture


LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Tammy Fox, a key employee in the far-flung Dale Romans stable, will be out of action in the coming weeks after suffering an ankle fracture in a recent morning training accident.

Fox was thrown from a horse June 11 and “landed on her feet,” said Romans, the 2012 Eclipse Award winner for top trainer. “But she landed in an awkward position and broke the ankle.”

Fox, a former jockey, is the life partner of Romans. They have two children together.

◗ Tommy “Cosmo” Cosden remains hospitalized in a Louisville rehab facility while recovering from the parasitic disease toxoplasmosis and cancer treatments. Cosden, an accomplished singer and performer, has been a popular figure for many years at Kentucky racetracks as a trainer and in other capacities.
