Dominguez Begins Rehabilitation

Jockey Ramon Dominguez

Jockey Ramon Dominguez has been transferred from New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center to Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in White Plains, NY, and has begun inpatient therapy for a skull fracture sustained in a January 18 spill at Aqueduct Racetrack. 

“Ramon continues to do well and is improving every day,” said the three-time Eclipse champion jockey’s wife, Sharon Dominguez. “He was transferred to Burke on Wednesday, completed initial evaluations on Thursday, and started a brain injury rehabilitation program on Friday. As Ramon takes the next steps in his treatment, he and I would like to thank everyone again for the continued support and prayers. Although his injury will take time to heal, Ramon is on the road to a full recovery.” 

There is currently no timetable for Ramon Dominguez’s release from Burke Rehabilitation Hospital. 

A native of Venezuela, Dominguez led all riders on the NYRA circuit in 2012 with 322 victories and led the nation in earnings with $25.6 million. Fellow New York jockeys John Velazquez and Javier Castellano accepted the 2012 Eclipse Award on behalf of Dominguez at the awards ceremony on January 19 in Hallandale Beach, Fla.
