4 riders shaken in Aqueduct spill

January 13, 1992

NEW YORK -- Jockey Angel Cordero suffered a broken right arm when he was thrown from his mount in a four-horse spill in yesterday's second race at Aqueduct.

Deal Rowdy, a 3-year-old gelding, precipitated the accident when he broke down under John Velazquez and was humanely destroyed after the incident.

Cordero and Velazquez were in the intensive-care unit at Long Island Jewish-Hillside Medical Center. Jorge Chavez suffered tenderness in his upper left buttock and went to Franklin General hTC Hospital for precautionary X-rays. Jean-Luc Samyn complained of minimal discomfort in his left shoulder, but was allowed to ride after an examination by the track doctor, Lawrence Strauss.

The three horses that survived the mishap suffered minor injuries.
