Golden Gate rider hurt in workout


ALBANY, Calif. - Jockey Dilip Amarsingh will be sidelined for one to two months as a result of a spill following a morning workout at Golden Gate Fields on Thursday morning.

Amarsingh, who has won 16 races from 176 mounts this year, had just finished working the 3-year-old maiden Bastian Lane, when the horse fractured a sesamoid while pulling up, falling and throwing the rider to the ground.

Amarsingh sustained a broken collarbone and a fractured vertebrae. Bill Delia, who trained Bastian Lane, said the horse was euthanized.
