Jockey Bonnie Castaneda Injured at Turfway

Jockey Bonnie Castaneda remained in the intensive care unit at University of Cincinnati Hospital Jan. 3 and is scheduled to undergo surgery Jan. 4 for two broken vertebrae in her back.


The 50-year-old rider also sustained a neck injury when her mount clipped heels with another horse during the fourth race at Turfway Park Jan. 1. Castaneda was aboard Jolinda in the $5,000 claiming race when Vicki L., who eventually finished third under Rafael Mojica Jr., came out and caused the accident. Vicki L. was later disqualified and placed 10th in the 11-horse field for the interference.


Castaneda’s husband, Marco Castaneda, who trains Jolinda, said his wife apparently hit her head when she fell to the track.
