Apprentice out four months


Apprentice Luis Colon will be sidelined at least four months after sustaining a fractured left thighbone when he fell off his mount, Stormtothewire, during the running of Saturday's 10th race at Gulfstream Park.

Colon finished tied for fourth in the jockey standings with 30 victories during the recent Tropical at Calder meet. He had won one race at Gulfstream since the meet began on Jan. 3.
