Jockey Jose Lezcano, second leading rider at Monmouth Park, was reported to be bruised, but okay following a fall just before the wire in the ninth race on Wednesday.
"Jose has no broken bones," said his agent Jason Beides Thursday. "He is badly bruised and we're going to take it day-by-day for right now. He won't ride today's card, but he's hopeful that he'll be back riding tomorrow (Friday)."
Lezcano was taken to Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch after being unseated by his mount Hermosillo during the final race on the card. The horse ducked out just before the wire, unseating the rider prior to crossing the finish line.
Through Wednesday's card Lezcano has 61 wins from 276 mounts.
