Chuck Lopez Hopes to Return Friday

Fan-favorite jockey Chuck C. Lopez is currently recovering from a broken T7 vertebrae he suffered in a spill on March 12 at Aqueduct, but is nearing a return.


The 49-year-old Monmouth Park mainstay says he’s hoping to be back on the track by the end of this week.


“Physical therapy is going great,” Lopez said. “If everything goes according to plan, I hope to be back riding on Friday.”


Lopez finished eighth in the 2009 Monmouth Park jockey standings and was having a very successful winter and spring at Aqueduct before his injury.


“I’m really looking forward to getting back to riding,” Lopez said. “It’s been tough sitting at home watching this new meet, and I’m really looking forward to be able to be a part of it.”


Lopez captured the riding title at Monmouth Park in 1998.
