Jockey Rene Douglas is in fair condition a day after being thrown from his horse during a race at Arlington Park in suburban Chicago.
Douglas was aboard Born to Be during Saturday's Arlington Matron Handicap when the horse clipped heels with another horse and fell at the top of the stretch. Born to Be flipped and tossed Douglas over her head and she then landed on top of the rider.
Northwestern Memorial Hospital said Sunday afternoon that Douglas is in fair condition.
Neither the hospital nor Arlington Park officials would release any details about his injuries.
Thoroughbred Web sites Bloodhorse.com and Thoroughbredtimes.com reported Sunday that Douglas has extensive injuries to his neck and spinal cord and may lose the use of his legs.
