Jockey Chantal Sutherland will miss eight to twelve weeks after suffering a broken left clavicle and a fractured right knee as result of a spill that took place in Thursday's sixth race at the Fair Grounds.

“She's doing well and in good spirits,” Sutherland's agent Rick Mocklin said.  “It looks like she may have surgery (Friday) and then spend a day here and then come home and rest. That will put us right at the end of the meet.”

Sutherland was enjoying a successful Winter Meet with a 165-15-21-18 record as well as $437,944 in earnings.

“It was going well and we were holding our own,” Mocklin said. “We were starting ride a couple for (Mike) Stidham and had ridden for (Bret) Calhoun and Larry Jones, so we were starting riding for people we weren't at the beginning of the meet. Her plans are undecided right now, as far as whether she'll go to Canada or Keeneland, but we definitely want to come here next year.”
