Jockey Francisco Maysonett hurt at Monmouth Park
OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) - Jockey Francisco Maysonett sustained a possible mild concussion when his mount unseated him during the fifth race at Monmouth Park on Saturday.
Track medical director Angelo Chinnici says Maysonett briefly lost consciousness and had a few chipped teeth. Maysonett was sent to a hospital for evaluation, but Chinnici says he "anticipates a quick recovery'' for the jockey.
Maysonett was aboard Our Corn, who was between horses nearing the far turn, when his mount clipped heels and unseated him.
Going into Saturday's card, Maysonett had ridden seven winners in 126 starts at the Monmouth Park meet.
