Hairline Fracture Sidelines Maragh

Jockey Rajiv Maragh will be sidelined at least two weeks after sustaining a hairline fracture of the T3 vertebrae in his upper back in a spill at Aqueduct Racetrack on New Year’s Eve, according to his agent, Matt Muzikar.

 

Maragh was unseated after finishing fourth in Monday’s second race at Aqueduct. The winner of that race, Squeal, stumbled and fell after the wire and Maragh fell as his mount, Lady of Gold, tried to avoid Squeal. Lady of Gold appeared uninjured in the incident. Squeal got up, ran loose, and sustained a chest laceration as she attempted to jump the rail from the inner track to the main.

 

After spending Monday night at North Shore University Hospital, Maragh is expected to be released later Tuesday.

 

“The doctors want to reevaluate him again in two weeks,” said Muzikar.
