Jaramillo, 40, was thrown when his mount, 2-year-old colt Cryogenic, reacted greenly to the jockey’s whip while leading the one-mile maiden claiming event for juveniles in deep stretch. Jaramillo was removed from the track by stretcher and transported to Memorial Regional Hospital for observation.
“The X-rays showed that nothing was broken, but he is very sore,” Soth said. “He’s going to take a week to recover and we’ll go from there.”
Venezuela’s all-time leading rider with more than 4,000 wins including 13 year-end titles, Jaramillo came to South Florida in 2015. He was the leading rider at Gulfstream Park West’s Fall Turf Festival meet that preceded Gulfstream’s current Championship Meet.
