Geroux Off All Mounts Through Monday Due To Father’s Passing

Jockey Florent Geroux has taken of all of his mounts this weekend, including Monday Jan. 1, in order to be with his family in Amiens, France following the passing of his father, retired jockey and trainer Dominique Geroux who was taken to the hospital following an injury when falling on Christmas morning. He was 67 years old.

According to Geroux’s agent Doug Bredar, he could possibly resume riding on Thursday Jan. 4 at the earliest. Funeral services for Dominique Geroux are pending.

Geroux was named the rider on two mounts for Friday evening’s Starlight Racing card as well as five for Saturday Dec. 30, including Sensitive in the $75,000 Pago Hop and Mr. Misunderstood in the $75,000 Woodchopper Stakes for trainer Brad Cox. He also was scheduled to ride seven on Sunday, Dec. 31 and six on Monday, Jan. 1.
