Belmont Park: Garcia bruised, but nothing broken


Jockey Alan Garcia has a bruised right thigh, but X-rays were negative for any fractures and the rider is listed as day-to-day, according to his agent, Ron Anderson.

 Garcia was injured when his mount, Wanstead kicked him in the paddock as he was about to climb aboard him for the third race. Garcia was transported by ambulance to North Shore University Hospital where he was examined and released.

Garcia was not scheduled to ride anywhere on Sunday and Belmont doesn't run again until Thursday, where he is named on two horses at Belmont.
