Jockey Edgard Zayas escaped injury on Wednesday, when he was unseated by his mount Illustrious Son in the seventh race at the Gulfstream Park West meet.
Illustrious Son clipped heels with Enroute and fell on the backstretch. Illustrious Son, a 3-year-old colt, later was walked off the track. Gulfstream reported that he was uninjured. Enroute stayed on his feet and finished sixth in the seven-horse field.
Zayas leads the GP West meet in wins, with 19 after 14 race days.
Jaramillo is second, with 16 wins, in the meet being held at Calder under sponsorship of Gulfstream Park. Gaffalione is third with 14 victories.
On Wednesday at GP West, Zayas and Jaramillo each rode two winners and Gaffalione rode one winner.
Zayas is listed on five mounts on Thursday’s eight-race card. Gaffalione is listed on seven mounts and Jaramillo has four mounts.
Zayas led jockeys in wins at last year’s GP West meet. He finished second in wins at the recent Gulfstream Park summer meet, despite missing several weeks due to rib and knee injuries. Gaffalione led jockeys in victories at that meet.
Through Wednesday, Antonio Sano leads GP West trainers in wins with nine and Kathleen O’Connell is second with six victories.
Sano led trainers in wins at last year’s GP West meet and at this year’s Gulfstream summer meet.
