Three injuries took place this morning at Santa Anita,
Frankie, who works the paddock gate in the afternoons and gallops in the morning, had a horse flip on him this morning and is in a medically induced coma...He was the last person I talked to before I left the races Sunday, I said, "I'll see you Thursday"..I hope I can get the chance to see him again..
Joy Scott broke her right femur (multiple fractures) on an Eric Guillot horse..
Casandra Branick reportedly broke her hand...
Hope all three can recover and heal quickly and well...

Who ever works with horses there is a huge risk as we all know.
These animals weight around 1100 pounds each and they can kill you.
Dealing with animals that are not domesticated, there is a huge risk involved. Such as dealing with horses, Killer whales, or Lions, etc, one must be on his toes at all time.
Last week a women trusted a lion that was rise since it was born,the lion did a nature thing, the Lion wanted to play, He killed her by accident. Male Lions weight in around 500 pounds.
Sorry to hear about this. Speedy recover.
I would lump in Rattlesnakes. Tigers and Alligators in this analogy. Speedy recovery to all involved.

Ye without sin, in, this, business, cast, the, first, stone.
The lion killed the girl by accident? He must of ran over her backing out of the driveway of the cage in his Lion Mobile.
