Aqueduct: Cohen to miss another day

Email

 Jockey David Cohen is still troubled by a swollen right calf suffered in a Thursday spill and he will take off his seven mounts on Sunday, including several live ones.

 Bill Castle, Cohen's agent, said that the swelling is down 80 percent but Cohen would not be able to perform ``up to the level they're hiring him to perform at.''

 Castle is hopeful that with dark days Monday and Tuesday, Cohen will be able to return on Wednesday. Cohen is the second-leading rider at Aqueduct's inner track meet with 68 wins. Ramon Dominguez, the leading rider with 100 wins, is at Gulfstream today.

 Cohen is one of the few people who will actually be upset about missing today's card, which has scratched down to 55 horses over nine races, several of which are plain unbettable (see 4th and 9th).

 Cohen looked live in both overnight stakes with Buster's Ready in Out Ruled Stakes, which is down to four horses with the scratch of Vixien's Roar, and Tap Attack, who is second choice to Eminent Tale in the Sweet Envoy.

 The replacements for Cohen are Channing Hill on Undocumented in the opener, Mike Luzzi on Westside Singer in the second, No rider yet on Buster's Ready in the third, Jose Valdivia on Dantastic on the fifth, Jose Valdivia on Suave Ending in the sixth, Channing Hill on Queen of the Lake in the seventh and Luzzi on Tap Attack in the Sweet Envoy.

The inner track is listed as fast today.
