Saratoga: Exercise Rider in Critical Condition after Spill
Exercise rider Raymond Bulgado remained in critical condition at Albany Medical Center on Tuesday, one day after suffering a fractured neck in a spill during training hours at Saratoga.
According to the Daily Racing Form, Bulgado, who is employed by trainer Nick Zito, did not sustain any severe head trauma as a result of the accident.
Bulgado was aboard the 3-year-old gelding, Ricochet Court, when the accident occurred. The gelding was working a half-mile in company on the Oklahoma turf course. Nearing the quarter pole, Ricochet Court suffered fractures of both forelegs and fell, hurling Bulgado to the turf.
Bulgado was taken to Saratoga Hospital, then later airlifted to Albany Medical Center.
