Ramon Dominguez Announces End of Riding Career
Click here to open this alert in a new page

The New York Racing Association released the following statement from Ramon Dominguez Thursday, announcing the end of the Eclipse Award-winner's riding career.  Dominguez has been on the sidelines since fracturing his skull in a Jan. 18 spill at Aqueduct.

Dominguez said:

“Riding thoroughbreds has always been my passion and my calling. When I was 13 and watched my first horse race inVenezuela, I knew that I would become a jockey, and my riding career has brought happiness and success beyond what I ever expected.

 

Thus, it is extremely difficult for me to announce that due to the severity of the injuries I sustained in an accident at Aqueduct Racetrack on January 18, 2013, my professional riding career has come to an end. While I hoped and even expected to be able to return to the saddle, as a result of my injuries and upon the advice of my treating physicians, it has been determined that I will no longer be able to pursue my career as a jockey.

 

I want to personally thank my family, fans, and fellow riders for overwhelming support in the months since my accident. I chose to make this statement to end speculation about my future, but I am not yet ready to speak publicly. I will come forward on my own, but in the meantime I ask that you please respect my privacy as I continue my recovery.”
