Jockey Robby Albarado, a fixture at the Saratoga meet for much of the last decade,
will be sidelined for an undetermined period of time after breaking his
clavicle and left index finger and thumb in a fall Wednesday afternoon at
Saratoga Race Course.
Albarado, 36, was unseated by his mount, Hunt for Candie
(No. 10), while galloping out after finishing sixth in Wednesday’s first
race run at 5 ½ furlongs over the Mellon Turf Course. After being treated at
the scene by New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) paramedics, Albarado was
taken by ambulance to Albany
where X-rays revealed the fractures. He remained hospitalized Wednesday evening
for further evaluation.
