Jockey Francisco Maysonett was taken to Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, N.J. after being unseated during the running of the fifth race at Monmouth Park Aug. 24.
"It's a probable mild concussion," said Dr. Angelo Chinnici, medical director for the racetrack. "He had a transitory loss of consciousness and a few chipped teeth. I sent him over for further evaluation, but I anticipate a quick recovery."
Maysonett, aboard Our Corn in the maiden claiming event at 1 1/16 miles on turf, was between horses nearing the far turn when his mount clipped heels and stumbled, unseating the jockey. Going into Saturday's card, Maysonett had ridden seven winners from 126 starts at the meet.
