Email

Jockey Chance Rollins will miss at least two weeks after fracturing his left shoulder blade and severely bruising his left knee in a first-race spill at Golden Gate Fields on Sunday.

Rollins was on Jamestown Flash when the horse broke down in the stretch, pitching Rollins toward the rail. A following horse, Yak Attack, appeared to strike Rollins as he tried to leap over him.

Jamestown Flash, a 4-year-old gelding, was euthanized.
