Jockey Jorge F. Hernandez was taken by ambulance to Monmouth Medical Center for “evaluation and X-rays,” according to Monmouth Park Medical Director Dr. Angelo Chinnici, after being unseated from his mount in the third race at the Jersey Shore oval Sunday.

Hernandez, a native of Santiago, Chile, who is in his first summer of riding at Monmouth Park, went down at the half-mile pole during the 5 1/2-furlong claiming race on the turf when his mount, Brennan's War, took a bad step. The horse did not suffer any apparent injuries.

Hernandez, tied for fifth in the rider standings at Monmouth Park with 10 wins from just 38 starters, was complaining of pain to his left arm and collarbone, according to Chinnici.
