BOSSIER CITY, La. - Jockey Tracy Hebert suffered undetermined injuries when thrown from his mount at the start of Sunday's sixth race at Louisiana Downs. Hebert was aboard Goldspender who stumbled badly leaving the starting gate, tossing the veteran rider hard to the ground. It also appeared that Hebert was stepped on by Goldspender, who struggled briefly to regain his balance.

Hebert was conscious but complaining of chest pain, according to Louisiana Downs stewards. He was transported to nearby Willis Knighton Medical Center in Bossier City.
