Ruidoso Downs: Jensen overcomes injury to win Derby


Jockey Cody Jensen won the $822,603 Ruidoso Downs Derby for Quarter Horses on Saturday just 18 days removed from having 10 screws and a plate placed in his collar bone, which was shattered in five pieces, according to the New Mexico track.

Jensen guided Wicked Courage to his seventh straight win in the race and had been aboard for all of the victories in the streak, except the horse’s trial for the Ruidoso Downs Derby on May 25 because he was regrouping from the injury sustained in a riding accident at Remington Park.
