Thursday Reads

Starting to get sick again. Oh, lovely. I have just one day to go before being off for two weeks.

Obituary: Jockey Garrett Gomez, 44, has died reportedly of a drug overdose:

Gomez won 13 Breeders’ Cup races in his career but never the Kentucky Derby. His best finish in the Derby was a second in 2009 aboard Pioneerof The Nile, sire of Triple Crown winner American Pharoah.

He won the Eclipse Award for outstanding jockey in 2007 and 2008. He was the top jockey in purses from 2006 until 2009.

He spent at least nine stays in rehab facilities before he said he found sobriety in 2003. He claimed to have been sober for a decade before he asked to be taken off his mounts in 2013.
