Katie Davis, Sarah Shaffer to ride at Delaware this summer


Katie Davis, who went down in a nasty-looking spill at Laurel Park last Saturday, was too sore to ride the next day but was not badly injured, according to her agent, the former rider Joe Rocco.

“All of the X-rays came back negative,” said Rocco, a winner of 3,732 races between 1978 and 2013. “She should be back riding Friday.”

Rocco also represents 10-pound apprentice Sarah Shaffer, who last Sunday rode for the first time since breaking ribs and her collarbone in a Nov. 11 spill. Shaffer needs one more win to trigger the beginning of her one-year apprenticeship.

Both Davis and Shaffer will ride at Delaware Park this summer, according to Rocco.
