Richard Matlow Confirms Hollywood Prevue Winner Jack O'Lantern Injured

Jack o' Lantern, the $41.80 upset winner of the Grade 3 Hollywood Prevue Stakes on Sunday, 11/23, suffered a condylar fracture and will be out for at least six months, according to trainer Richard Matlow. In an interview with Daily Racing Form columnist Brad Free, Matlow said the colt was sore cooling out after the race, and x-rays on Monday morning revealed the break.

Surgery will be performed this week to insert screws into the break - a common surgery for this type of horse racing injury. Jack O'Lantern is expected to come back from the operation and have every chance of racing again.
