Dominguez Sidelined With Bruised Foot

Jockey Ramon Dominguez

Ramon Dominguez, who has effectively sewn up his fourth straight riding title on The New York Racing Association, Inc. (NYRA) circuit, will miss the next three race weeks after bruising his foot recently at Aqueduct Racetrack, according to his agent, Steve Rushing.

“It wasn’t getting better, so he saw a specialist who advised him to take some time off,” said Rushing. “Nothing is broken.”

Aqueduct will be dark December 17-25, with Dominguez, the two-time reigning Eclipse Award winner for Outstanding Jockey, scheduled to return when racing resumes on December 26.

“He’s going to take a few weeks off, and that will take us through the winter break,” said Rushing. “He’ll be back the day after Christmas.”

Despite the injury, Dominguez on Saturday won the Grade 1 Cigar Mile Handicap with Stay Thirsty, Grade 1 Gazelle with Dance Card, and Grade 2 Remsen with Overanalyze.

Through Sunday, Dominguez has won 309 races on the NYRA circuit in 2012, 138 more than second-place jockey Javier Castellano. This year, Dominguez has captured meet titles during the Aqueduct inner track, Belmont Park spring/summer, Saratoga Race Course, and Belmont fall meets. He leads Joel Rosario 32-16 during the current Aqueduct fall meet.
