Hall of Fame jockey Ron Turcotte was moved to a hospital closer to his home in Grand Falls, New Brunswick, a day after his legs were broken when the van he was driving hit an icy patch of road and flipped on its side.
Ron Turcotte, the Hall of Fame rider best known as the jockey for 1973 Triple Crown winner Secretariat, is hospitalized with fractures in both legs after a single-vehicle accident March 9.
After investigating the timing of 1973 Triple Crown winner Secretariat's Preakness Stakes, the Maryland Racing Commission voted unanimously to change the official time from 1:54 2/5 to 1:53, a stakes record.
