Aqueduct: Cohen won't ride Saturday


David Cohen, who was kicked in the right calf by his mount, Talented Princess in Thursday's opener, will take off his four scheduled mounts at Aqueduct on Saturday due to continued soreness, his agent, Bill Castle said.

 Castle is hopeful Cohen can return to action on Sunday.

 Cohen is the second-leading rider at Aqueduct's inner track meet with 68 wins. While he trails Ramon Dominguez by 32 wins, he has 25 more victories than Cornelio Velasquez, who won Friday's nightcap on the first-time starter Real Glory, owned and trained by Linda Rice.

 Meanwhile, trainer David Jacobson reports that Talented Princess was doing better after her stifle apparently locked up leaving the starting gate Thursday. Jacobson said Talentd Princess was a little tender in her hind end, but that she would eventually be okay. Whether he 8-year-old mare races again has not been decided, Jacobson said.
