HALLANDALE BEACH, FL - Jockeys Paco Lopez and Antonio Gallardo could be released later today from Memorial Regional Hospital after being involved in a spill during Saturday’s last race at Gulfstream Park.

Gallardo is sore from the spill but has no broken bones. A third jockey involved in the spill, Luis Jurado, walked away from the spill.
The rider’s three horses were not injured.
