Jockey Chuck C. Lopez, who was unseated when his mount fell in the fourth race at Monmouth Park Sunday, suffered a fractured finger on his left hand and will be sidelined about three weeks.
Lopez's mount, Sea Preacher, broke down going into the final turn of Sunday's fourth race, unseating the rider. The 6-year-old horse was euthanized after fracturing a leg.
Lopez, who currently ranks third among Monmouth's leading riders with 85 wins, plans to return to riding at the Meadowlands in October.
