Pincay Recovering, Plans to Ride Wednesday

Jockey Laffit Pincay Jr., who was involved in a spill during Saturday's fifth race at Santa Anita, was off all his mounts on Sunday because of lingering soreness, but is expected to be back in the irons on Wednesday, where he is named to ride five horses.

He also took off the remainder of his Saturday mounts immediately following the spill, including Frank E. Kilroe Mile (gr. II) hero Redattore, who won with Alex Solis in the irons.

Pincay was aboard Trampus Too for trainer Wesley Ward in the 6 1/2-furlong turf downhill claiming event when he clipped heels with front-running Rainman's Request, trained by Pete Eurton and ridden by Tony Farina. Trampus Too fell, throwing Pincay and rolling over him. Trampus Too suffered only cuts and bruises in the spill, but was otherwise in good shape on Sunday morning. Rainman's Request, who finished second in the race, was disqualified and placed last.

Farina received a seven-day suspension for "altering course without sufficient clearance, causing interference" that will run from Mar. 6 through 14.

Pincay, a member of racing's Hall of Fame, is Thoroughbred racing's winningest rider with 9,519 victories
