Irad Ortiz, Jr., 20, was released from Saratoga Hospital on Friday afternoon after X-rays were negative on his right ankle, according to the NYRA jockey advocate. He is cleared to ride for Saturday’s card, during which he will attempt to win the prestigious Grade 1, $600,000 Alabama on Questing.

 

Ortiz Jr., injured his ankle in the starting gate prior to the start of Friday’s third race at Saratoga Race Course. His mount was the 3-year-old filly Corinzia, who was scratched from the race and uninjured.

 

The native of Puerto Rico entered today’s card tied for ninth in the Saratoga jockey standings with nine wins, including his first two Grade 1 scores – Questing in the TVG Coaching Club American Oaks and Poseidon’s Warrior in the Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap.
