From The Blood-Horse
Jockey Jon Court, who suffered a broken right hand May 3 in the final race at Churchill Downs on Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) Day, hopes to return to race riding at the track Sept. 26.
Court, 53, said he is taking calls for next weekend, although he still is awaiting clearance to ride.
“The hand’s been feeling a lot better,” said Court. “I’ve been galloping a few horses and it’s been just a little sore, but hopefully I can get back on some mounts next weekend.
“I have to take calls since next weekend is the last one here. I talked to my doctor (Saturday) and asked him if I’d be good to go; he answered, ‘I’ll see you Tuesday’ (Sept. 23). ”
Court is the 15th-ranked jockey in career wins at Churchill Downs with 448.
