Brandon Meier conscious after accident


Popular rider Brandon Meier was unseated at the top of the stretch in the eighth race at Hawthorne Race Course Friday afternoon when his mount, Bedroom Eyes, clipped heels with Beauty of Scarlet.

Meier was conscious and moving around and was being tended to in the jock’s room after the incident but will be taken to Loyola Medical Center for a more complete evaluation. Updates will be forthcoming as more information becomes available.

Beauty of Scarlet with Seth Martinez aboard went on to finish second but was disqualified and placed sixth.
