Ouch!  Update from Jim Miller on Twitter 6 hours ago:

Jim Miller‏@HawthorneJim

Update on jockey Tim Thornton: Broken Collarbone, broken rib, fractured cheek bone. He's sore but will recover. He's very tough.

Did Tim Thornton actually ride the winner in the second race at Hawthorne today?  Can he ride with a broken collarbone?

Great question. According to DRF he rode the winner of the 2nd race, if thats accurate Tim Thornton is the toughest man alive or the reports of his injuries were completely inacurate. Either way, I loved his series, like the way he rides, and you cant help but root for him thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up

asked about tanner today, couldnt find out nothing. and pay no mind to the charts as theyve been wrong quite a bit lately, earlier this week a horse was claimed out of a race which peter announced and it was not noted in the charts.


saw thorton today on my way out of the track which means hes feeling pretty well considering what happened

I think with Tanner its always a question with weight...

Always amazed at Arlington when he walks by me - the guy has got to be 6 feet tall.

Not sure how he ever made weight- should be playing for the Bulls  bull bull

Nice guy though

He is a nice guy, but my reason for wanting him to win that particular race is a bit selfish. He's riding my filly.

She did not win that time. That was the Stakes race and she finished fourth. Hoping for a better fate this time Smiley

good to see TT make it back before the end of the meet! i only glanced at the form and have yet to study it but looks like you have a strong chance tomorrow brivolta. im not impressed with what your trainers other horse in the race(who has had a real nice year but is wrongly favored over yours m/l line wise IMO) has done on a fast track which it should be tomorrow, best of luck!!!!!!!!!

Funny that you say that because I had this argument with my dad. He doesn't like the 6.5 furlongs and I told him I think the 6.5 hurts Cyberphobe more than it hurts Camagin. Cyberphobe does her best work at 5 or 5.5. I also told him she wins on turf, poly, and wet dirt...and doesn't impress me much on a fast dirt track. Does that mean we will beat her, or win the race? Of course not. But I agree with you that we are in a good spot tomorrow. To me it's the most favorable field we have caught in our four races this meet.

i dont think the 6 and a half hurts either of of em considering cyberphobe started her turnaround after binking a 1 turn mile at AP this summer. going through the lifetime pp's your filly just missed going 6.5 earlier in her career and the other time she got second she closed from 18 out of it, her running style has obv changed these days. your trainer has done a real nice job turnin both of the filly's mentioned around
