The opening day of the 2013 season at Pardubice was a sunny, pleasantly warm early May day. Jiri Janda and his team had the course in good condition. Unusually, each of the nine races was won by a different rider, though Josef Vana and Frantisek Holcak each trained two winners.
The 2013 season at Pardubice begins on Wednesday, May 8th, first race at 1 pm.
According to the Fitmiin/Turf Magazin website, Jiri Kousek has contacted his wife from a hospital in Paris, where he was taken after being attacked.
Jiri Kousek, one of our leading jumps jockeys, has been missing for a week. His car has been found at Auteuil racecourse in Paris, with the keys in it. Josef Vana suggested on TV that jockeys have gone missing for a week before, and have reappeared with nothing worse than a bad headache. We hope it may be so in Jiri's case.
