BY foxsports • December 13, 2009

A collision at an Arkansas horse track injured a jockey and forced officials to euthanize two horses.

Oaklawn Park officials said Monday's collision injured 54-year-old jockey Tim Doocy, who was scheduled for surgery after an early diagnosis indicated fractures to his ankle, knee and hand.

Doocy was aboard The ATM, a 2-year-old colt, when the horse collided with a pony ridden by outrider Chisum Ewing. The accident occurred as Doocy's mount was pulling up from a 3-furlong workout. Ewing was not injured.
