Apprentice jockey Katie Clawson, who has ridden only one race since Aug. 23, hopes she can return to work next week at Indiana Grand.

Clawson was hurt in a morning training spill and suffered a concussion, the effects of which still are being resolved. She wasn’t cleared by a doctor during a visit last week but said she has another appointment Monday and expects a more favorable report then.

Clawson has been the leading rider for most of the Indiana Grand meet and, even after missing time, was only seven wins behind Deshawn Parker entering Wednesday’s races. Parker has a meet-best 78 winners, two more than second-place Marcelino Pedroza.
