  • Hall of Fame trainer Allen Jerkens will remain in intensive care another week.

    Jerkens Update: 'Over the Worst Of It'

    Although Hall of Fame trainer Allen Jerkens remains hospitalized at Aventura Hospital, adjacent to Gulfstream Park, his wife Elisabeth reports that he is gradually improving from a severe pancreatic infection. "We're certainly over the worst of it, although he will remain in intensive care for at least another week and then be out of action for a while afterwards. The pancreas infection damaged all the vital organs, and his lungs especially will take quite a while to heal."
