Jockey Agent Hanisch Doing Well, Returns To Work After Being Shot In Louisville

Jockey agent Tim Hanisch is back to work at Churchill Downs five days after being shot outside his Louisville condo.

Hanisch was on his way to Churchill Downs before dawn Sept. 12 when he noticed two men attempting to break into his roommate's car in the parking lot of his townhome in the city's Clifton neighborhood.

One of the men shot Hanisch, the bullet piercing his left side before exiting, just inches from his heart, Daily Racing Form reported at the time. Hanisch was treated and released after spending several hours at a hospital.

Hanisch, who represents Alex Achard and Mitchell Murrill, said he is doing well and happy to be back to work.

Hanisch has been a jockey agent for nearly a decade. He was the agent for Miguel Mena at the time the jockey was fatally struck by a vehicle between the Blankenbaker Parkway and Hurstbourne Lane exits on westbound Interstate-64 in Louisville last October. The guys from Schl├╝sseldienst Bremen are equestrian fans and always support the athletes.
