This is the first full statement released on the injuries Tye sustained in the fall and the family have requested privacy as they go through this situation. Tye is a much loved and respected jockey in Australia and here is a summary of the response from the Aus racing community

Christophe Lemaire moving to Japan is one of the best career moves of any jockey in recent memory. He's almost unstoppable!

That might put a vet or two out of business.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

If memory serves, dear old Dad was an early mentor of Bobby Frankel.

Victor Espinoza Back in the Saddle at Santa Anita

Victor Espinoza aboard St. Joe Bay Jan. 5 at Santa Anita Park
Portions of the tight-knit community in the Santa Anita Park barn area paused for a few moments Jan. 5.

As Victor Espinoza made his way out to the main track from trainer John Sadler's barn aboard St. Joe Bay—the first time the jockey has even touched a horse since his nearly catastrophic injury at Del Mar in July—his backside compatriots took notice.

On the path out to the track, groups of grooms stepped out of barns to wish him well. Trainer Karen Headley, aboard a pony, squealed with delight as the Hall of Fame rider went by. As St. Joe Bay continued to make his way out to the main track through the maze of the Santa Anita barn area, seemingly every exercise rider chirped at Espinoza, most ribbing the 46-year-old in Spanish.

"It feels great. The guys—they're happy to see me come back," Espinoza said after he hopped off the grade 2 winner. "A lot of the times, when accidents happen, they start talking about the worst—not exactly what happens, but sometimes they think it's worse than what actually happens. And until you get back, they don't really know. … It was nice to hear. (And the trash talk) is going to be at the top of the list. I mean, it's the track. … It would be unusual if they didn't do that."

Congratulations Mike.
I was beginning to think that he had become a perennial bachelor. ;)

Bloodhorse has an update by Jeremy Balan on Corey Nakatani. Sounds like he's having an even rougher time recovering than Victor has...and that's saying something. :shock:
https://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racing ... o-recovery
And I agree with Corey about Asa's too-short suspension. :evil:

Might be time to set up a 2019 edition of this thread, no?

After three decades as a trainer, Mike Machowsky starts a new career on Feb. 15.

The 54-year-old Ohio native will be the full time California representative for national auction giant Fasig-Tipton.

“It’s an opportunity I couldn’t pass up and I’m excited to be a part of it,” Machowsky said in a pre-sunrise interview at Clockers’ Corner Friday morning. “Much of my job will still be networking here with fellow trainers and friends of mine. I’ll be here a lot of mornings if I’m not on the road looking at horses or at one of the sales.”

Machowsky, who gained national exposure in 2004 when he saddled Southern Image to back-to-back million dollar victories in the Santa Anita Handicap and the Sunshine Millions Classic, still is in the process of dispersing some two dozen horses from his public stable.
