Jockey John Jacinto broke his arm in the sixth race Sunday at Louisiana Downs, according to his agent, Richard Price. The race was declared a no contest, according to Trent McIntosh, director of operations for the Bossier City, La., track. Jacinto was thrown, and had to be removed from the track by officials.

Price said an X-ray taken at a local hospital revealed the break. He said Jacinto remained at the hospital as of the early evening hours on Sunday.

“He has a broken arm. It’s not where he broke it last year,” Price said of a previous injury. “That’s all I know. I don’t know the extent [of the injury.] Hopefully, it’s not that bad.”

Jacinto ranks second in the current jockey standings at Louisiana Downs.
