Jockey John Velazquez says he continues to heal from an injury suffered in a spill last month at Churchill Downs and hopes to be racing again later this month.
Velazquez says doctors have cleared him to begin exercising horses next week. He suffered a broken collarbone June 16 when the horse he was riding in the ninth race at Churchill broke down.
Velazquez won the Belmont Stakes aboard Union Rags June 9 and is hoping to ride the colt in the Haskell Invitational on July 29.
The 40 year old jockey will be inducted in racing’s Hall of Fame next month.
