Veteran rider Eddie Cox is at home recovering for the next several months after sustaining two broken vertebrae in a spill that happened on June 21 at Delta Downs.
“The doctors have released Eddie from the hospital but he will remain in a neck collar for up to six months,” said Rhonda Cox, wife of Eddie Cox. “He has broken the T-2, and T-6 in his neck. There will no required surgery for the injury. We are very blessed, because it could have been a whole lot worse.”
Cox was aboard Jumpn Streaker in the second race at Delta Downs when, approximately 100 yards from the wire, the horse broke down.
