Jockey Serpa Has Severe Concussion

Jockey Angel Serpa, who was sent to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, N.J., after being unseated by his mount Kisses Required during the running of Friday’s fifth race, will remain in the hospital overnight for continued observation.
 
“There’s no intracranial bleed,” said Dr. Angelo Chinnici, after conferring with doctors at Jersey Shore.  “He does have a severe concussion, so they’ll likely keep him there for another 24 hours just for observation.”
 
Kisses Required, a 3-year-old filly by Pavarotti, led through most of the mile and a sixteenth turf race for maiden claimers.  Nearing the 1/16th pole, Kisses Required attempted to jump the portable rail, unseating Serpa.  The Jane Cibelli-trained Kisses Required was vanned off the track for further veterinary evaluation.
 
A 24-year-old native of Puerto Rico, Serpa was fifth in the Monmouth Park standings going into Friday’s card.  From 159 mounts, he has piloted 17 winners.
