Javier Castellano Undergoing Minor Surgery On Right Hip, To Return In January

Javier Castellano

Hall of Fame jockey Javier Castellano will undergo a minor surgery on his right hip on Monday, Nov. 16, reports the Daily Racing Form. Dr. Bryan T. Kelly will perform the arthroscopic procedure to clean up “debris” at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.

“He said you don't want to wait two or three years to do it, because then there could be damage in your hip,” Castellano told drf.com. “I don't have much going on in November, December so I'll take off part of November and December and come back in January like I always do.”

Castellano said he hopes to have several rides back in mid-January before the Pegasus World Cup card on Jan. 23 at Gulfstream Park.
