Jockey Carlos H. Marquez Jr. was taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center after being injured when his horse Break the Glass went down during the running of the third race at Monmouth Park Sept. 5.

“Carlos suffered a broken left clavicle,” said Dr. Angelo Chinnici, Monmouth Park medical director. “He’s under the care of trauma specialist Dr. Nina Hanna at Jersey Shore University Medical Center.”

Channing Hill, who was unseated from Liston during the third race incident, was cleared to continue to ride.

A 43-year-old native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Marquez was fourth in the Monmouth Park jockey standings heading into the Sept. 5 card.

Break the Glass was euthanized on the track.
