Aqueduct: Castellano takes off Thursday mounts after spill


Javier Castellano, who was unseated when his mount Atlantic Dream stumbled and fell past the wire of Wednesday’s ninth race, was treated and released from North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, N.Y., where tests came back negative last night.

Castellano took off his mounts Thursday due to general soreness, but plans to ride Friday, according to agent Matt Muzikar.

A leading candidate for an Eclipse Award in 2013, Castellano, 33, has been the leading rider at the last three New York Racing Association meets and took the lead at Aqueduct’s fall meet with a 6-for-7 performance last Saturday. He leads the nation in wins (317) and purse earnings ($23.5 million).

Atlantic Dream was uninjured in the mishap.

A previous version of this article misstated the earnings for Javier Castellano in 2013. He has earned $23.5 million, not $25.5 million.
