Terry back on Rachel a day after falling


NEW ORLEANS - Despite spending much of Monday at a hospital after falling to the racetrack in a training accident, exercise rider Dominic Terry was back aboard Rachel Alexandra for her Tuesday morning gallop here at Fair Grounds.

"I think he was just more body sore than anything," assistant trainer Scott Blasi said Tuesday afternoon. "He just got jammed up."

Terry was pulling an Asmussen-trained horse up two sets after galloping Rachel Alexandra on Monday when his mount stumbled, throwing Terry to the ground.

Terry galloped only two horses Tuesday (Hot Dixie Chick was the other one) on a relatively slow morning for the Asmussen stable.
