EVERYBODY’S OK AT HAWTHORNE
At the top of the stretch in Wednesday’s eighth race at Hawthorne, #1 Delightful Daisy, ridden by Julio Felix and trained by Michele Boyce fell after apparently clipping heels.
Both rider and runner came out of the mishap OK. Felix joked afterwards that “It felt like every other horse in the race jumped over me.”
The horse left the track under his own power and Julio will be on his mounts tomorrow.
