Dominguez Has Dislocated Clavicle

Jockey Ramon Dominguez
Jockey Ramon Dominguez and apprentice rider Samuel Camacho, Jr. were released Sunday evening from North Shore University Hospital where they were transported following a spill in this afternoon’s eighth race at Aqueduct Racetrack.

 

According to the NYRA Jockey Advocate, X-rays were negative on Camacho, while Dominguez suffered a dislocated, but not fractured, clavicle. Camacho is expected to ride Wednesday as scheduled; reigning Eclipse champion Dominguez will miss an unspecified amount of time.

 

“I’m not in any pain and will follow up with my doctors tomorrow,” Dominguez said by phone. “The X-rays showed no fractures and the doctors said I would not need surgery.”

 

In Sunday’s race, an allowance contest for 3-year-old New York-bred fillies, Dominguez’s mount, Mob Wife, stumbled and fell in the stretch, unseating her rider. Camacho’s mount, Suave N Sassy, then collided with Mob Wife, causing Camacho to fall as well. Neither horse appeared to be seriously injured in the incident.

 

Both Dominguez, 35, and Camacho, 20, are Venezuelan born. Dominguez led all riders with 104 wins during the inner track meet that concluded Sunday. Camacho, who began riding at Aqueduct on January 15 after starting his U.S. career at Gulfstream Park last year, finished 10th in the standings with 21 winners.

Hope Ramon is well for the KYDerby, I love to watch him ride. When he's on Hansen It's magical!
So what is it about Jockeys? The way that some musicians have perfect pitch, do some jocks have perfect pace?
I imagine you were shaking your head in sympathy cocoa2 when you wrote, "Just a crappy year for him" much like you probably were when you wrote, "Lucien was struggling..." unlike some, I thought it was pretty funny & suspect it may be very versatile. Todd was struggling.... Rick was struggling.. And glad to hear Ace Ramon is not so bad. Anyone going to catch him before he's back in the irons?
Just a crappy year for him.

Yeah..Ramon should seek therapy. Total let down compared to other years, right? With Hansen and Alpha for Derby for prospects; National Leader in earnings and wins; "Oh darn..I just had a walk in the park on the 2011HOY, Havre De Grace - Man, Life Sux!"
Just so glad he is okay!
