Grove City, Ohio  – Funeral Services for jockey Josh Radosevich who died as the result of injuries sustained in a fall during the third race Wednesday at Beulah Park will be held Monday with a memorial at the track on Friday before the start of racing.

In his young career Radosevich had 14 wins at Beulah Park and five wins at Mountaineer Race Track in West Virginia. His first win was at Beulah Park on October 14 of this year. Nyoka, the horse he had been riding, was euthanized at the track following the accident in the third race. The tracks were operating as part of an Ohio 7/7 program.

The story attracted the hearts of the nation as Josh was honored in national news segments including ESPN, Inside Edition, CNN, MSNBC, and the tributes of local news and racing industry publications.
