On November 28, jockeys across North America will unite to support Canadian rider Julia Brimo, who suffered head and back injuries in a spill at Keeneland Race Course on October 30.

Brimo is currently at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center in Toronto and will transfer to Lyndhurst Centre for spinal cord rehabilitation.

On November 28, jockeys across the continent will wear the name “Julia” on their boots to show solidarity. Some will also donate one riding fee to a fund in her honour.

Donations to the Julia Brimo Fund, set up to help with rehabilitation costs, can be made by sending a check made out to the Julia Brimo Fund to Cindy Werner at 1116 Flat Rock Road, Louisville, KY, 40245.
