  1. On May 1st I heard there was a jockey thrown and it looked pretty bad, I couldn’t get any information on the race or the horse it happened on or if the horse was okay. Does anyone know more about this incident? I heard it looked pretty bad for the jockey who was launched pretty high and far and bounced a couple of times. The racing world is so secretive with these kinds of things.
