From the Paulick Report
T.D. “Terry” Houghton, who was severely injured in a fall this March, was injured again Saturday night when his horse fell in the fifth race at Mountaineer.
Houghton’s mount, Ashado Cat, was vying for the lead at the top of the stretch when the filly fell, sending the jockey out of the saddle.
According to Houghton’s agent, Tim Frekin, the jockey was transported to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh with a broken nose, a concussion, and a stabilized hairline fracture in his neck. A CT scan on Houghton came back in good order, and no surgery will be necessary for any of the injuries.
In March, Houghton suffered multiple breaks in his collarbone and a fracture of his T9 vertebra. He returned to the saddle in August at Hazel Park and is currently third in the jockey standings at Mountaineer.
Ashado Cat got back on her feet after the spill and ran off. According to information from Frekin, the filly escaped serious injury in the incident.
