Heard this was a horrible spill. Think another jock was hurt too, but don't know who. Have no info on the horses involved either. Fingers crossed.

I was just catching up on some of the later races, and Tea Party Girl broke down in the Pink Ribbon at Charles Town and dropped jockey Ivan Cruz.

Then the Barrett's race 12 (maiden claiming) had two fall: Bright Town clipped heels and went down, and Miss Purple Rain ran into her and fell. Jockeys involved were Julien Couton and Alonso Quinonez. It looked messy, like maybe one of them ran into the rail and flipped some of that into the air.

Edit: HRTV says that Julien was loaded onto a backboard and taken out by ambulance. They say that both riders were on the ground and didn't get up after the spill.

Miss Purple Rain walked off the track, and Bright Town was vanned off.

Was at Laurel yesterday and saw him break down. Did not go down and jockey jumped off and held Prince around the neck rubbing him while waiting for the vet. Was a right foreleg, not open. Leg was stabilized on track (was on the turf) and was then vanned off. Still waiting for an update.

Update from DRF...no head injury, but he fractured his tailbone. And I know from experience that that is really painful...you get a shooting pain in your arse from doing the simplest things when you shift your weight.
