Aqueduct: Velazquez will ride Saturday


 Jockey John Velazquez is expected to ride Saturday after precautionary X-rays revealed no injuries, his agent, Angel Cordero Jr. said Friday afternoon. Velazquez went for X-rays at North Shore University Hospital.

 Velazquez has some bruising on the outside of his kidney, but there is no internal injuries, Cordero said.

Velazquez was thrown from his mount Go Go Shoot, who went down suddenly at the three-sixteenths pole of Friday's Top Flight Handicap. He also was thrown on Wednesday.

Velazquez has several chances in four of the graded stakes on Saturday's card including To Honor and Serve in the Grade 2 Remsen, and Bribon in the Grade 1 Cigar Mile. He also rides Summer Laugh in the Grade 2 Demoiselle and Awesome Maria in the Grade 1 Gazelle.
