Joy Scott: Injured Rider’s Surgery on Hold
Santa Anita jockey Joy Scott, who suffered a compound fracture to her right femur during a training accident earlier this week, has had to have surgery to repair the leg put on hold until an infection clears up.
Her son, Jesse Sanchez, told the Daily Racing Form that doctors want to wait until the infection subsides before they operate. Scott has been at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena since Tuesday.
The 53-year-old Scott broke the same leg in an accident at Los Alamitos in 2001.
