Napravnik out 8-12 weeks

Rosie Napravnik (Maryland’s top rider last year) will be out eight to 12 weeks with back injuries suffered in a spill last Friday at Laurel Park. Napravnik suffered three compression fractures in the thoracic region of her back when her mount, Look Out Lorie, went down.

“There’s not any real treatment for it, in my case lying down and letting it heal,” said Napravnik. “I am not in any kind of brace or anything. I have a brace that I will use when I get a little more active. I can walk right now, but I am trying to stay immobile.”

Napravnik currently has 387 career victories with more than $8-million in earnings.
