Bejarano Recovering from Multiple Injuries

Jockey Rafael Bejarano signs autographs the day before the Preakness
Rafael Bejarano was at Huntington Memorial Hospital today after suffering multiple injuries when his mount, Gameboy Luke, went down entering the stretch in Saturday’s  fourth race at about 6 ½ furlongs on turf.

Bejarano’s agent, Joe Ferrer, reported that the 32-year-old rider had no serious internal injuries, and no brain or spinal cord injuries. Santa Anita’s riding leader six times, Bejarano did sustain a broken collarbone, two broken scapulas and a broken rib. He is expected to remain at Huntington three to five days for observation according to Ferrer.

Through 10 days at Santa Anita’s Spring Meet, Bejarano was second to Joe Talamo in the standings with 11 victories. Bejarano was the runaway winner of the Winter Meet crown with 93 victories, 39 more than runner-up Talamo.

Just wait to you go to the airport, Exterminator. You'll get special "screening."
Ah. Mine's right under the skin on the left ankle.
depends how deep; one on the lateral malleolus (lateral ankle) is subcutaneous as opposed to a pin in a hip or plate which has lots of muscle over it.
They make the metal detecors go off? I'll beep when I get back on my feet.
many a rider here could not get through a metal detector without a note from their surgeon
All the best to Rafael for a speedy recovery.
