Jockey Omar Berrio, who suffered an apparent stroke on Friday,
remained hospitalized on Sunday but was moving his arms and legs and
talking with visitors, according to Southern California backstretch
chaplain Eddie Meza.
There was concern in the aftermath of the stroke that Berrio had
suffered damage to his speech and possible paralysis to his right side,
but Meza said on Sunday that was not the case. Meza visited the
43-year-old Berrio in the hospital.
“He was moving his arms and legs,” Meza said. “He was talking.”
