A three-horse spill during the eighth race Thursday at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots injured a pair of jockeys, as detailed by Bloodhorse.com.

Kerwin Clark was aboard Ellashoo when the 4-year-old filly broke down nearing the five-sixteenth’s pole in the six-furlong dirt allowance, which set off a chain reaction that resulted in two other horses falling—A Fashion Affair, who was ridden by Miguel Mena, and Queen Bernardina, who had Gabriel Saez in the irons.

Clark complained of pain in his neck, jaw, and ribs, while Miguel Mena, who entered the day as Fair Grounds leading rider at the meet with 55 victories, suffered an injury to his right ankle. Read more here.
