“My right wrist had an old sports injury. I broke it playing football when I was younger and had broke it a few times since,” said Wrenn. “All of my wrist’s cartilage is gone so they had to remove one of my bones and make some incisions in that tendon.”
Wrenn has spent his time off relaxing after an extremely busy 2013. He spent time with family in his home state of Michigan, spent time as a spectator at Northfield Park and enjoyed a cruise in the Caribbean.
“These past few weeks have been tough because I really like driving horses and it is hard not being able to do what you want to do,” explained Wrenn. “I am very excited to get back in the bike and start competing again.”
Wrenn is scheduled to drive in 13 of the 15 races programmed on Monday at Northfield Park with a post time of 6 p.m.
