Dominguez, Warner in spill


Jockeys Ramon Dominguez and Terry Warner were taken to Christiana Medical Center in Stanton, Del., after they and jockey Jose Caraballo were involved in spill during Tuesday's sixth race at Delaware Park.

Dominguez, the meet's leading rider with 70 wins and tied for third in winners in North America this year with 150, was riding Cole's a Warrior in the six-furlong race for maidens. They were chasing the leader, when Cole's a Warrior bobbled once, righted himself, then stumbled again and fell. Caraballo, riding Jestajoker, was unseated as his horse vaulted over Cole's a Warrior. Then Warner's mount, Altamaha, broadsided Cole's a Warrior, which knocked Cole's a Warrior on top of Dominguez.

Caraballo escaped injury and rode later on the card. Dominguez and Warner were both conscious when transported by ambulance to the medical center for further evaluation. Dominguez was complaining of leg pain, according to his agent, Steve Rushing.

Cole's a Warrior and Altamaha left the track by horse ambulance, and Cole's a Warrior was euthanized.
