Jockey Carlos Montalvo was taken by ambulance to North Shore University Hospital following the running of Saturday’s 11th race at Aqueduct in which his mount Bacchi fell.

 A second horse, Rotten to the Core, died instantly after he fell over Bacchi and suffered head or neck trauma, according to New York Racing Association officials. Bacchi sustained a knee laceration, but otherwise was reported to be okay.

Ryan Curatolo, the jockey of Bacchi, appeared to escape the spill uninjured.

It was the second death on the main track after 21 horses died during the inner track meet.
