Two jockeys were transported to the hospital after a three-horse spill the evening of Dec. 13 at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course.

Ryan's Gold, owned and trained by Jim Tracy, was making a move near the eighth-pole in the five-furlong claiming race when he broke down. Zen's Village and Dorothy's Diamond then fell over the fallen horse.

Penn National officials said Angel Quinones, who rode Ryan's Gold, and Angel Rodriguez, who rode Dorothy's Diamond, were taken to Hershey Medical Center for examination of possible injuries.

Also in the race, Not For Winston stumbled and unseated rider Ricardo Chiappe just before the finish line. Neither was injured.

Ryan's Gold, who was claimed for $12,500 just before the start of the race, was euthanized because of his injuries, track officials said.

Only two horses finished the race.
