By - Dan Liebman - In some ways, jockeys are no different than coal miners, oil-rig workers, and police and firemen. There is inherent risk in their everyday job. But you can't think about the risk. To dwell on it would make the job impossible to perform.
Veteran jockey E.J. Perrodin remained in intensive care at Tulane Medical Center Nov. 24 as a result of injuries sustained prior to the previous day at Fair Grounds.
Jockey E.J. Perrodin was thrown from his mount prior to the 10th race Nov. 23 at Fair Grounds and was taken to a New Orleans-area hospital for observation.
