Back in the saddle

sportspatrickhusbandsTop Barbadian jockey Patrick Husbands was in the winners’ circle yesterday after riding Alythiela to victory at the Woodbine Racetrack in Ontario, Canada.

Husbands, returning from a long lay-off with a leg injury, took the seventh race of the day over six and half furlongs in the race for three-year-old horses and up. Alythiela, trained by Carroll Josie and owned by the Laconian Racing Stable,

finished ahead of Hurricane Lorraine ridden by Omar Moreno and Runfor Ro with John Velasquez in the saddle.

Husbands, a seven-time Sovereign Award winner as Canada’s top jockey, was injured in May at Woodbine when his mount, A Tough Buck, collapsed just after the finish line.

A Tough Buck, a four-year-old gelding trained by Don MacRae, was able to get up and walk off the track under his own power.

Husbands, however, was caught briefly underneath the horse and fractured his right tibia.

Up to the time of his injury Husbands had won 18 races at Woodbine this year. (WG)
