From Santa Anita Publicity
ARCADIA, Calif. (Mar. 28, 2013) -- Joy Scott was scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday afternoon at Huntington Memorial Hospital on a compound fracture of her right femur suffered in a March 12 in a training accident at Santa Anita.

“They’re inserting a rod and several plates now that the infection has cleared up,” said trainer Howard Zucker, who is spearheading a fundraising effort for the 54-year-old jockey, with the help of Bob Fletcher of the Winners Foundation.

“They’re putting some hardware in her.”
