PRADO BREAKS RIB IN SPILL

Gulfstream Press Release

HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Hall of Fame jockey Edgar Prado is expected to be sidelined a few weeks with a broken rib sustained in Friday’s last race at Gulfstream Park.

            Prado was unseated from his mount Mister Noisi down the backstretch. Agent Mike Kelly said Prado was taken to Aventura Hospital and Medical Center after Friday’s races for further evaluation.

            “He has a broken rib because he hit the ground hard,” said Kelly. “Edgar said he’s doing OK. He’ll be out a couple weeks and then he’ll play it by ear and follow the advice of his doctor.”

            Prado, who was inducted into The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 2008, has won nearly every major race and is the author of “My Guy Barbaro.” Through Friday Prado had ridden 7,031 winners. He is ninth all-time in wins, 26 victories behind Angel Cordero Jr. in eighth.
