INJURED JOCKEY INSPIRED

BY SUPPORT OF RACING FAMILY  

 By Greg Douglas – Dr. Sport

 

HASTINGS NEWS BY GREG DOUGLAS

There was a mention on a racing blog earlier this week suggesting Hastings Racecourse management failed to express “public concern and best wishes” regarding jockey Jeff Burningham’s racing accident last Sunday.

Hastings management is always concerned about the well-being and safety of everyone involved in the racing industry.

“It’s very traumatic when there is an accident during the races,” says Darren MacDonald, General Manager at Hastings and Director, BC Racing. “We are always supportive and offer assistance wherever it is needed.”

Burningham was front page news following his spill aboard Proud Cause, who clipped heels with the horse in front of him approaching the final turn in Race 5 on Sunday’s card. As reported by Postmedia’s Gordon McInytre, the 47-year-old riding veteran suffered a broken L3 vertebra, broken shoulder blade, broken ribs and a bruised lung.

Remarkably, Burningham was in good spirits Thursday morning at VGH when he said just prior to his initial physio treatment: “You’re always in pain when things like this happen but I’m so thankful I’m not paralyzed. I thank God for that.”

Burningham also said he’s been inspired by the emails, text messages and phone calls he’s been receiving from horsemen and horsewomen from all levels at Hastings, including management.

“They really are very good people,” he said. “To Lacie and me, they’re family.”

Jeff and Lacie, his wife of 22 years, have a 20-year-old daughter and 10-year-old son. When Lacie told him there was a GoFundMe page in the works by that very “extended family”, Jeff’s initial reaction was one of uneasiness. “The more I thought about it,” he now says, “the more I appreciate everyone’s support. It really does lift my spirits. I’m very grateful.”

There will be more information coming from the Racing Office once the GoFundMe details have been confirmed.

HAMEL SURGES IN JOCKEY STANDINGS

HASTINGS NEWS BY GREG DOUGLAS

AMEL SURGES IN JOCKEY STANDINGS

WITH A FIVE-WIN WEEKEND

Two Stakes Victories Spark Attention  

Vancouver, B.C. (July 14/19) – For veteran rider Richard Hamel to win two of the three $50,000 stake races at Hastings Racecourse on the weekend was one thing but his sudden rise in the overall jockey standings was another.

Approaching the age of 50, Hamel is determined to prove to himself and his army of staunch supporters that the party is nowhere close to being over.  After winning consecutive leading jockey titles in 2015, 2016 and 2017, a string of injuries and ailments last season dropped him to seventh in the overall ratings.

By winning five races this past weekend – including the Monashee Saturday and the Lieutenant Governors Sunday, Hamel vaulted into third place among the leading riders as the halfway mark of the 51-day meet at Hastings quickly approaches.

Amadeo Perez with 29 wins and Enrique Gonzalez with 28 continue their heated and season-long rivalry atop the standings but make no mistake they are both aware of Hamel’s sudden surge that has brought his total to 21.

It was hardly surprising that Hamel rode the boundless B.C.-bred filly Here’s Hannah to her 10th consecutive win at Hastings for BC Stables owners Brenda Combs, Pat Bennett and trainer John Morrison in Saturday’s Monashee by four lengths in a final time of 1:44.78 over one mile and sixteen.

“I tried to keep it as simple as possible,” Hamel said.  “She keeps showing more confidence each time out.”

To which Morrison jubilantly added: “She eats well, trains hard and just keeps getting better.”

Here’s Hannah was an overwhelming favourite, paying $2.50, $2.10, $2.10.  The Hamel faithful, however, cashed in much more handsomely in Sunday’s Lt. Governors victory by four-year-old Kentucky-bred He’s the Reason from the North American Thoroughbred Horse Company trained by Glen Todd.

He’s the Reason went wire-to-wire in a final time of 1:44.06, over the mile and sixteen and finished 2 ½ lengths ahead of longshot Brave Nation.  He’s the Reason paid $13.90, $7.80, $5.20 and coupled with Brave Nation for a whopping $191.30 Exactor.

That made it four riding victories for Hamel on the weekend and he wasn’t quite satisfied, completing Sunday’s eight-race card with a win aboard Sunspa for trainer Craig MacPherson.

Leading trainer Phil Hall celebrated his seventh stakes victory of the year by winning the Spaghetti Mouse for two-year-olds with Gonzalez guiding Catchacougar to an impressive 4 ¾-length win over six furlongs in a final time of 1:13.39.  Catchacougar, owned by George Gilbert, was the only filly in a five-horse field, paying $5.70, $2.90, $2.90.

It was a unique ‘family affair’ race with Hall saddling three horses and his niece, Christine Ammann, saddling the other two:  Porter Gent, who finished second, and the 8-5 favourite Dougie Dougie, who ran fourth.

Racing resumes next weekend at Hastings with the inaugural Friday Night Live card beginning at 7 p.m. followed by the 11th annual Deighton Cup on Saturday at the regular 1:50 p.m. start time.
