Jockey Ray Sabourin is "alert and doing well" according to his agent Neal Wilson after the veteran rider was involved in a one-horse spill in the fifth race of Saturday's afternoon card of racing at Woodbine.
Sabourin, aboard Higher Up, was thrown to the E.P. Taylor Turf Course, tumbling several times after his horse fell just after the final turn in the seven-furlong race.
He was taken by ambulance to a local area hospital for precautionary reasons.
"He's a little sore and stiff, but he's in good spirits and joking around," said Wilson. "He had some X-rays and they all came back negative. There are no broken bones and he's doing well."
