OZONE PARK, N.Y. – Upon further review, jockey Dylan Davis might not have a torn labrum after all and could return to the saddle much sooner than originally thought.

A second MRI performed on Davis’s shoulder did not reveal a tear, according to his agent, Nick Soulis. Instead, Davis just has a sore shoulder and will undergo two weeks of physical therapy. It is possible that he could return by mid-to-late February.

Davis was one of three riders involved in a spill Jan. 17. Davis’s mount, Humbolt Street, tried to hurdle over one of the other fallen horses and unseated Davis, who said he felt his shoulder pop out of its socket. Davis was able to pop it back in and originally he was diagnosed with a torn labrum, which was going to require surgery and a lengthy recuperative period.

Coincidentally, Humbolt Street and the two other horses involved in that spill – Thirty Percent and Tottie Royer – are all entered to run in Saturday’s sixth race.
