Broken Collarbone Sidelines Trujillo

Journeyman jockey to have surgery after freak fall, expected to miss 90 days.

Jockey Elvis Trujillo is expected to be out of action at Gulfstream Park for 90 days, according to agent Cliff Collier.

The 30-year-old journeyman, who makes his home in nearby Hollywood, suffered a broken collarbone in a freak post-race spill Oct. 13. He will undergo surgery Oct. 22, said Collier.

Trujillo was unseated by favored Stars Collide when she stumbled suddenly after a third-place finish in the fifth race, a 1 1/16-mile claiming turf event for fillies and mares. Trujillo annually ranks among the top jockeys at Gulfstream.
