Jockey Patti Cooksey lays injured on the track April 12, 2003 as first aid personnel, Will Lockridge, front, of EMT Mediport, and Mike Stout, horse ambulance driver, try to veer Classikas away from her after her mount Ide Rather Not went down in the first turn in the first race at Keeneland. Jockey Inosencio Diego is shown at top right walking away after the three-horse spill. Forty-two-year Herald-Leader photographer Frank Anderson won the 2003 Eclipse Award for Photography for this image. The Eclipse Awards are given annually to members of the media for outstanding coverage of Thoroughbred racing. Anderson died in August 2017 and many of the images on this blog are taken by him.
