Cassidy Recovering After Surgery To Severed Fingers
In Sydney, leading jockey Jim Cassidy "is recovering after undergoing lengthy surgery to repair 2 fingers he nearly severed in a gardening accident," reported The Daily Telegraph. Manager Matt Privato confirmed last night: "I spoke to Jim briefly & he seems to be doing pretty well under the circumstances. He hasn't seen the surgeon since the operation, but we are all hoping for some good news." Cassidy, 46, suffered the injuries when he was trimming hedges at his home on Monday & "remains hopeful of making a comeback to the saddle by the end of the year".
