Journeyman rider Chris Emigh is expected to return to the races in a few days after sustaining a "slight concussion" in a fall during the sixth race at Churchill Downs on Nov. 11.
“They released him from the (Norton Audubon) hospital last night and I dropped him off at his hotel about 9,” said Terry Miller, agent for Emigh. “He had a slight concussion and was real sore. I think he will be off all mounts for a couple of days and possibly be back Sunday (Nov. 15).”
Emigh’s mount, Silent Candy, appeared to clip heels with Dreaminofjosephine in the far turn of the one-mile grass race, causing Emigh to be unseated. Silent Candy did not go down and was caught by outriders in the upper stretch.
