The injury was treated at the Central Baptist Hospital emergency room. Stitches were required and doctors told Paulick not to use his right hand for a few days because of possible damage to tendons.
“I can't believe one klutzy step could wreak such havoc,” Paulick told the Paulick Report. “I was forced to miss both the New York Racing Association out-of-bankruptcy teleconference and the press briefing from Alex Waldrop of the National Thoroughbred Racing Association following his closed-door industry meeting to discuss horse welfare issues. I apologize to the Paulick Report readers for not being able to cover those events
“The injury is going to limit my non-verbal communication skills behind the wheel of a car and slow down my typing and note-taking once I'm able to use my right hand. But thanks to an exceptional, Web-savvy daughter who is assisting me, the Paulick Report will continue to provide the latest news and information to our readers during this brief hiccup.”
The bratwursts were uninjured.
