Churchill: Homeister appears okay after tumbling to turf at start of third race


Jockey Rosemary Homeister Jr. appeared to escape injury when her mount, Primp, stumbled at the start of the third race at Churchill Downs, and she went crashing to the turf.

She quickly bounced back to her feet, and after being escorted back to the grandstand via ambulance, which is customary after falls, walked under her own power back toward the jocks' room.

Primp also seemed to avoid major injury, though horses can still grab themselves when stumbling badly. A 2-year-old Bernardini filly, she stayed out of trouble and merely galloped at the back of the pack before being caught by the outriders shortly after the finish.

Daylasoul ended up winning the race rather easily for trainer Ken McPeek and jockey Kent Desormeaux, who won his second consecutive race of the day.
