Wilson Recovering at Home

Jockey Rick Wilson has returned to his Sykesville home where he'll continue to recover from injuries suffered during the Pimlico spring meet.

"He is doing really well," said John Salzman Jr., Wilson's agent. "He is still doing therapy on the right side of his face. Considering what happened things couldn't be better."

Wilson was injured on May 8 when his mount, Advance to Go, stumbled coming out of the gate during the second race and inadvertently kicked the jockey in the head after unseating him. He was transferred to Kernan Rehabilitation Hospital on May 25.

"We really haven't talked about what his future plans are," added Salzman. "We'll wait to have that conversation, but he's looking into other things, such as working for the Jockeys Guild or becoming a steward."

The 50-year old ranks 20th on the all-time wins list with 4,939 victories.
