Davis Could Return to Saddle Thursday

Jockey Jackie Davis was released from North Shore University Hospital early Monday morning after X-rays and scans came back negative following a spill Sunday after the conclusion of the ninth race at Aqueduct Racetrack. Ryan Curatolo, also involved in the incident, walked off the track and appeared uninjured.

 

“Her initial X-rays were negative, but she told the doctors she was still in pain, so they did a CT scan, and that was also negative,” said Davis' agent Roger Sutton. “She was hurting, but she’s tough.”

 

Sutton added that Davis, who is off her Monday mounts at Aqueduct, could ride again Thursday.

 

In Sunday’s race, a six-furlong maiden race for 3-year-old New York-bred fillies, Curatolo’s mount, Raw Moon, collapsed after finishing fifth, apparently having suffered a fatal cardiovascular collapse. The 19-year-old rider was unseated, but exited the track under his own power. Curatolo – one of three finalists for the Eclipse Award as the nation’s top apprentice, an award which will be presented at a ceremony Monday evening in California – has no scheduled mounts at Aqueduct today.

 

Davis’ mount, Fundsalo Jones, was unable to avoid the fallen horse and also fell, unseating her rider, who was taken by ambulance to North Shore complaining of back and shoulder pain. Fundsalo Jones, the seventh-place finisher, got up on her own accord and was walked back to the barn.

 

Curatolo, a native of Marseilles, France, currently is fifth in the jockey standings for the Big A’s inner-track meet with 28 winners. Davis, 23, a Saratoga Springs native and the daughter of retired jockey Robbie Davis, is tied for ninth with eight winners.
