Following an appointment with his neurosurgeon on March 25, jockey Ramon Dominguez said he will continue physical and cognitive therapy for a fractured skull sustained in a spill at Aqueduct Racetrack on January 18.
“I had an MRI and saw my doctor this morning,” said the three-time reigning Eclipse Award winner for Outstanding Jockey. “While he is very pleased with the progress I have made, I am not completely healed and need to continue my therapy. I feel very good physically and mentally, but my injury was serious and I need to take more time to allow myself to fully recover.”
Dominguez said he would continue to follow-up with his doctors, and that there is no timetable for his return to riding.
“I miss riding and I'm excited to come back when my doctors release me,” Dominguez said. “It's hard because I feel so good, but I know I need to be patient and focus on my recovery.”
