Can’t Keep A Good Man Down: McAnally Returns To Work After Recovering From Fall

Hall of Fame trainer Ron McAnally was back at his stable office Wednesday morning, three days after taking a tumble that required an overnight hospital stay.

McAnally, was in attendance at a party at the Solana Beach home of Pamplemousse Grill owner Jeffrey Strauss after the races Sunday night when a knee, surgically repaired a few years ago, gave out on him.

“I turned the wrong way on it, went down and hit my head on the concrete,” McAnally, 85, said. “When I was laying there on the ground, they asked me how I felt and I said, ‘About like Bob Baffert felt when (Arrogate) ran the other day,” McAnally said. “Even Baffert got a laugh out of that.”

McAnally was taken away on a stretcher and spent about a day and a half in a hospital undergoing tests and observations. Results were negative, clearing McAnally to return to the track where he's been a regular since 1948.

McAnally was No. 3 on Del Mar's all-time trainer wins list to start the season, his 444 behind only Mike Mitchell (476) and Baffert (466) and No. 2 on the stakes-winning trainer roll with 77 to Baffert's 121.
