The Daily Racing Form reported Wednesday that injured rider Marlon St. Julien is showing signs of improvement following a serious spill over the weekend at Prairie Meadows. Marcus Hersh writes St. Julien has movement in his limbs and is able to communicate.
The jockey remains in intensive care after undergoing surgery to address a spinal injury from the fall. Doctors will know more about his prognosis after inflammation goes down.
St. Julien was aboard Carbaugh in the ninth race Saturday when the horse was interfered with and St. Julien fell off head first. The rider of 2,468 winners with earnings just shy of $47 million, St. Julien has won multiple graded stakes races over the course of his career.
