Albarado Suffers Broken Heel in Pre-Race Mishap

Jockey Robby Albarado suffered a broken right heel when he was dismounted by 3-year-old filly Mollys Missb’havin while leaving the paddock for Race 2.

Albarado was transported to Tulane Medical Center for X-rays. Albarado told a track official a CT scan was being scheduled to determine whether surgery is necessary.

There has been no estimate on a timetable for Albarado’s return.
