Apprentice jockey Cecily Evans was injured, apparently seriously, when her horse fell and threw her in the first at Laurel. Doctor on site said she had a concussion and a neck injury. Reports from friends and family at the hospital, none confirmed, indicate she can move her appendages and had 2 clean CAT scans. However, she was having seizures and has been placed in an induced coma.

Jockey Julien Leparoux took off his remaining mounts at Churchill Downs Sunday after he sustained an injury in the paddock in the lead-up to the 6TH race. Darren Rogers of Churchill's publicity department tweeted that Leparoux was "kicked in the buttocks and has a deep bruise."
