Napravnik Cleared to Ride After Toe Injury

Jockey Rosie Napravnik returned to riding this afternoon, having received medical clearance after suffering a non-displaced fracture of the third toe on her right foot in yesterday’s sixth race. Aboard Magical Season, Napravnik hit the side of the starting gate at the break and was taken to the hospital where X-rays revealed the injury.

 

“I’m fine,” said Napravnik, who through the first four days of the week had three winners, including a victory in the Grade 2 Sanford aboard Bern Identity.

 

Napravnik will be aboard Five Sixteen in tomorrow’s $100,000 Curlin and on Saturday will ride Fast Falcon for Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito in the Grade 2, $600,000 Jim Dandy.
