Vicki Warhol-Essman had a bad spill yesterday at Arapahoe Park Racetrack & needs as much support as we can give her! She has been a major contributor to the racing industry for 30+ years primarily in the mid west but all over the US as well. She has been one of the dominant female Jockeys in the country with 1600+ TB wins & a multiple stakes winning Jockey. Aside from being a Jockey, the last few years she has been a exercise rider & pony person. She was asked to come work with me as an outrider this summer in Colorado so she added that to her extensive career as well.
Yesterday morning was her day off but she came to work to help exercise/work some horses & had a bad accident. While working one yesterday the horse spooked & bolted going over the outside rail ( the horse was fine) but Vicki sustained 7 broken ribs & a collapsed lung. She has a long road to recovery & was still in ICU as of this afternoon. Please guys, let's help her out!!
