X-rays were negative on jockey Eurico Rosa da
Silva after a spill in the ninth race Wednesday at Aqueduct Racetrack,
according to the NYRA Jockey Advocate.
Da Silva, 35, was taken to Jamaica
Hospital after being
unseated when his mount in the race, Honeywantshermoney, fell after the finish
line, and was released after the X-rays came back negative.
According to Kevin Meyocks, da Silva’s agent, he is day-to-day
and hopes to ride Thursday at Aqueduct. The Brazilian native has won eight
races from 68 starts in 2011. He has won 673 races over the course of his
riding career in North America, which started in 2004.
Honeywantshermoney, a 3-year-old filly trained by Rodrigo Ubillo,
suffered fatal cardiovascular collapse.
