We're not going to put the cart before the horse. We'll nominate him to a lot of things between now and the end of the year, but our focus is getting him back into a routine and then a work schedule.

It will be interesting to see what reaction we have and how many fans walk over to the paddock to see him. The fans support our sport. If we can do any little things to help them have interest and have a good time at the races, it's something that everybody has to step up to the plate and do.

I don't know when and where, but he will return to racing somewhere this year.

I believe he will overcome this bump in the road. I believe we can formulate a plan that will have Alex back racing at his previous level.

He went to the track and jogged a mile, and he was very happy to get out.

Dr. (Larry) Bramlage came on Friday and we did the digital X-rays again and it showed the healing is taking place.

As soon as we get the results of the X-rays, we can develop a plan for getting him on the track. He has continued to walk three or four times a day and seems to be fine.
