Jockey Frey breaks collarbone in spill

Email

Jockey Kyle Frey broke his right collarbone and bruised his back when his mount, Generous George, fell in the seventh race at Golden Gate Fields on Friday.

Frey was taken to Highland Hospital in Oakland, Calif., for further evaluation. Generous George sustained a fracture above the knee on his left front leg while approaching the turn in the six-furlong race and was euthanized.

Majestic Cat tripped over the fallen runner, but neither he nor his rider, Pedro Flores, was injured.

The actress had seen the Ruffian-Foolish Pleasure Match Race. Ruffian had to be eased on the backstretch. Ruffian's jockey, Jacinto Vasquez, jumped off and grabbed her reins. Her saddle was unhinged and removed. The vet applied an inflatable air cast to her right foreleg. The horse ambulance’s ramp waited. In a modern snap and plunge breakdown, a speed racer nearing the finish line collapsed and died with his saddle on. The jockey was a projectile. www.clockerbob.com

Glad the spill wasn't worse. My condolences to the connections of Generous George. Remember the Disabled Jockeys Fund every time a jock is hits the dirt.
