Belmont Park: Garcia kicked in paddock; taken to hospital


Jockey Alan Garica got kicked in the right thigh by his mount Wanstead in the paddock prior to the third race.

Garcia was taken out of the paddock on a stretch and transported to North Shore Universty Hospital. He had to take off his remaining mounts on the card including Al Khali in the $600,000 Man o' War Stakes.

 To add insult to injury, Wanstead won the third race ($20) with John Velazquez aboard.
