Curatolo Alright Following Spill

Apprentice jockey Ryan Curatolo, who fell from his mount during the post parade for Sunday’s first race at Belmont Park, was examined and released from North Shore University Hospital and expects to ride as scheduled when racing resumes on Wednesday.

 

Curatolo, 19, took off from the rest of his mounts Sunday after being unseated by Brolio as they made their way to the gate. Taken by ambulance to the hospital, he returned to the jockey’s room at Belmont Park shortly after 4 p.m. following negative X-rays. 

 

“I had an exam and everything is OK inside,” said Curatolo. “In two days I think I’ll be OK.  Tomorrow there is no racing, Tuesday no racing, just today I lost a winner because in the second race [my mount won].  But, it could be much worse. You have 365 days to win races, so if you lose one day, there are many more.”

 

A native of France, Curatolo picked up the first stakes win of his career on Saturday afternoon at Belmont when he piloted Street Game to victory in the Grade 3 Hill Prince. Curatolo has 26 winners from 176 mounts since the Belmont spring/summer meet opened on April 29, good for fifth place in the NYRA jockey standings through the conclusion of racing Sunday.
