Spill results in no-contest at Beulah


GROVE CITY, Ohio - The seventh race at Beulah Park on Saturday was declared a no-contest when jockey Wilkin Ortiz was thrown from his mount, Pacarrie's Magic, at the start.

Pacarrie's Magic, a 7-year-old gelding, stumbled at the start of the one-mile event and Ortiz tumbled to the ground. He lay motionless in the stretch of this one-mile track as the horses reached the far turn and the track stewards had the announcertell the riders to pull up as the gate crew tried to wave the field down.

Ortiz got up with the help of the ambulance crew as the horses turned for home and got into the ambulance under his own power. Pacarrie's Magic was uninjured.
