INGLEWOOD, Calif. (July 14, 2009) — Track announcer Vic Stauffer, who was hospitalized after suffering what doctors termed a “mini stroke” Saturday night, has been given the green light to return to work.
Stauffer, also the agent for leading jockey Joel Rosario, missed Sunday’s program. He will return to the announcer’s booth when racing resumes on Thursday at Hollywood Park.
“I am absolutely overwhelmed by the outpouring of well wishes,” Stauffer said. “Tina, Lilly and I can never properly say how much we appreciate it. I know that I am going to feel better when I’m doing what I enjoy most, and that is calling the races.”
Stauffer, 50, has been the track announcer at Hollywood Park since 2001.
There are four days remaining at Hollywood Park’s 55-day Spring/Summer Meet, which concludes Sunday.
