Dominguez Says He'll Return Friday


Ramon Dominguez said he expects to resume riding on Friday at Aqueduct, less than three weeks after suffering a separated collarbone during a race, and in time for the Grade I Wood Memorial.

Dominguez, 35, has been leading rider of the New York Racing Association circuit each of the past three years. He has 16 individual meet titles at Aqueduct, Belmont Park, and Saratoga.

“I’m feeling pretty good and am hoping to ride a few horses on Friday,” said Dominguez. The jockey will see his doctor on Monday for clearance. “It’s only been two weeks, and I can feel big progress from one day to the next,” he said.

Dominguez is expected to ride Alpha in the Wood on Saturday. The colt was flown to New York from Florida on Friday.
