Velasquez Expected to Resume Riding Feb 29

Jockey Cornelio Velasquez, who was taken to North Shore University Hospital Saturday complaining of neck and back pain after being unseated in the day’s final race, is expected to return to riding on Wednesday when live racing resumes at Aqueduct, according to his agent, Matt Muzikar.

 

“All the tests were negative,” said Muzikar Sunday morning. “He’s just body sore. Obviously, he took off his mounts today, but he plans on riding Wednesday.”

 

Velasquez, 43, is in second place on the Big A’s inner-track jockey standings with 73 winners behind reigning Eclipse champion jockey Ramon Dominguez.
