Three time Eclipse Award winning  jockey Ramon Dominguez, who suffered a skull fracture as a result of an accident Jan. 18 at Aqueduct Racetrack, continues to improve and was transferred from Jamaica Hospital in Queens to New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center on Manhattan’s East Side yesterday where he is currently undergoing further evaluation. Ramon Dominguez   “Ramon is doing really well and resting comfortably,” said Sharon Dominguez, wife of the jockey who was honored with his third Eclipse Award as outstanding rider last Saturday.   “I can’t thank the doctors and staff enough at Jamaica Hospital for the superb care they provided to Ramon,” Sharon Dominguez continued. “With an injury like this, we thought it was important to seek a second opinion, which is why we decided to change hospitals.”   There is currently no timetable for Dominguez’s release from New York-Presbyterian Hospital. “We’re so grateful for the concern, support, and well-wishes from the racing community and Ramon’s fans,” said Sharon Dominguez. “We will continue to provide periodic updates on his condition through NYRA. Ramon is improving steadily, but needs to rest as he recovers, and his doctors have prohibited him from having visitors at this time.”   Dominguez was thrown from his mount Convocation when he appeared to clip heels with the (eventual winner), Sovereign Default. Convocation, who stumbled and fell, did not appear to be seriously injured in the incident and was walked off the track.   Convocation
