Jockey Jeff Faul struck by car and killed

Jockey Jeff Faul died Friday night in Cankton, La., after being hit by a car, confirmed his fellow Delta Downs rider and longtime friend, Gerard Melanon. Faul was 47.

Faul was a Louisiana native who won the first race of his career at Delta Downs, on Jan. 3, 1982. His last mount also came at Delta, on Nov. 3. In between, Faul won 1,776 races from 13,747 starts, for career mount earnings of $13,879,176.

Faul’s career was interrupted in 2003, when he was suspended six years for carrying an electrical device in a race at the now-shuttered Great Lakes Down in Michigan. He was reinstated by officials in Michigan, and resumed riding in 2010.
