Five Jockeys Take Holiday Mount Spills Five jockeys took spills over the long Thanksgiving weekend. Fortunately, none of the riders were seriously injured. In Friday's second race, Nelson Shaw went down when his mount, Bellisario, broke down on the backstretch. David Grafton lost his balance trying to avoid the fallen horse and also fell from his mount. Both jockeys took off their mounts for the rest of the weekend. The most potentially serious inci- clent occurred during Saturday's eighth race, when Philip Grove fell from his mount, Real Lori. Going into the first turn, Real Lori slammed into the horse to her right, Why Madie Why, throw- ing Grove out of the irons and to the ground. Only a strong effort from ap- prentice Pam Ritter on Why Madie Why prevented a possible chain- reaction collision. Grove did his best to prevent the accident and was held blameless by the stewards. He return- ed the next race to ride Red Wing Royal for trainer James Casey, but took off his mounts on Sunday. On Sunday, Advelo stumbled com- ing out of the gate in the fourth race, unseating Dean Johnston, Jr. One race later, Frankie Martinez fell when his mount, a first-time starter named Glenrocmo Bruce, apparently shied from other horses and hit the rail. Martinez was able to walk back to the jockeys' room, but took off his mounts for the rest of the day.
