Jockey Rene Douglas, defending jockey champion at Arlington Park, is somewhat sore and bruised following a spill in Wednesday's last race but will return to riding shortly, according to his agent Dennis Cooper. Douglas, who took off his mounts Thursday, suffered his injuries after his mount Andy's Jet, owned and trained by Steve Asmussen,
fell at the start of Wednesday's ninth race, throwing Douglas to
the ground. Andy's Jet galloped off without apparent injury. Earlier in the day, Douglas had ridden three winners. He won the
second race with Hugh H. Robertson & Regatta Stables' If Six Was Nine for trainer Robertson, came right back in the third with a win aboard Nelson Bunker Hunt's Red Azalea for Asmussen; and completed his triple with a tally astride Thunderhead Farms' Yalta for conditioner Don Von Hemel.
