Jockey Lane J. Luzzi was involved in a spill on Friday, July 2nd at Lone Star Park. It was reported that he sustained a small fracture in his clavicle and was expected to be out for three weeks, according to his agent, Bradley White, per DRF.

The day after the incident, he posted on Social Media to give us an update, and appears to be in high spirits. 

On Instagram, he posted the following to his followers:

The positive sentiment extended to Twitter. In a Tweet he revealed that he's sore, but thankful to have avoided serious injury, and thankful all of those who have reached out.

The incident occured on Race 3. Shortly after the start, his horse NOBLE EGYPTIAN clipped heels with BIBLEMAN and stumbled, causing Luzzi to fall. 

White (Luzzi's agent) added that no surgery is required. 

On Saturday morning, Luzzi remained at Harris Methodist Hospital located in Fort Worth. The doctors wanted to monitor swelling, according to White.

At this time, we are still awaiting updates on NOBLE EGYPTIAN. According to Equibase's Result Charts, the Robertino Diodoro trainee "walked off" after the incident. 

The Racing Stewards ultimately disqualified BIBLEMAN from second and moved to fifth place.

Sunday Morning Update from Lone Star Park:

We're wishing you a full recovery, Mr. Luzzi!
