Talamo Injured at Del Mar

Favored Quick Enough, claimed for $32,000 at Del Mar July 25, declared a quick dividend on his new owners' imvestment with a hard-earned victory in Thursday's feature at five furlongs on the grass.

 

With David Flores in the saddle, Quick Enough, sent to the gate at 5-2, wore down pacesetting Winter Camp in the final sixteenth to win by three-quarters of a length in :55.46 for the distance. Winter Camp was a neck in front of Square Deal at the wire.

The day proved disastrous for talented young jockey Joe Talamo who suffered a fractured left wrist after he was unseated during the running of the third race  when his mount, Rockstar Ben, fell after sustaining a broken  right foreleg in midstretch of the race at one-mile on the grass.

 

X-rays at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla confirmed Talamo's injury which will sideline him until the Oak Tree-at-Santa Anita meeting beginning September 29.  Entering Thursday's card, Talamo had won ten races to be tied with Rafael Bejarano for third place in the Del Mar standings.
