Report: Solis To Make Decision On Riding Career After August Surgery

Jockey Alex Solis, who has been out of the tack since April, told The Blood-Horse Thursday that he will make a determination about his career status following a hip surgery scheduled for Aug. 1.

Solis, who began riding in 1981, has been a commissioner on the California Horse Racing Board for the past two years. He has suffered several serious falls over the course of his career, including one in 2004 that left him with a broken back repaired with two titanium rods and eight screws.

Solis has ridden winners of over 5,000 races and guided horses to 84 Grade 1 victories, including Pleasantly Perfect, Snow Chief, and Kona Gold, among others.
