(Edited Keeneland press release)
Robby Albarado, leading rider at the Keeneland fall meet in Central Kentucky with 10 victories, was off all of his mounts Oct. 18 after a spill in Oct. 17’s sixth race.
“He’s fine, he just looks like he got in a fight with Mike Tyson,” said Lenny Pike, Albarado’s agent. “His right eye is almost swollen shut and he can’t ride today, but he will ride Wednesday (Oct. 21).”
My Baby Baby stumbled at the start of Oct. 17’s’s sixth race and unseated Albarado coming out of the gate. Albarado suffered contusions to his face and did not ride the rest of the card.
One of the mounts he lost was the call on El Brujo, who won the Perryville (gr. III) under Edgar Prado.
