Jockey Rajiv Maragh said that on Dec. 1, he will head to south Florida to ride the winter meet at Gulfstream.

Rajiv Maragh, who broke his arm when he was unseated from Wicked Strong during the Jockey Club Gold Cup on Sept. 27 at Belmont, likely will not return to race-riding until early December at Gulfstream Park. Maragh met with his doctor last week and was told that the bone has not fully healed. Maragh’s next visit with the doctor isn’t until Nov. 21.

Maragh said that on Dec. 1, he will head to south Florida to ride the winter meet at Gulfstream.

Maragh was enjoying a terrific year, with 101 victories and $9.5 million in purse earnings. In addition to winning the Grade 1 Wood Memorial on Wicked Strong, Maragh rode Main Sequence to three Grade 1 victories as well as Artemis Agrotera to a score in the Grade 1 Ballerina.
