    Seven starters in that race, for wagering purposes NYRA will only pay out for win and place

    Still no feedback on the injuries to the horses and riders

    I'm sick to my stomach. That was the worst wreck I've seen.
    I hope we get some news soon.

    5.
    Two finished unscathed. Private Details, the horse in third, went down, and all the others behind fell over her.

    Not that there's ever a good place for a horse to go down, but that had to be one of the worst. After having been so spread out on the backstretch, the horses in the field were all moving up around the final turn.

    Very sad for all involved.

    Listed winner was Southern Oaks and listed second was Quantifier; they were racing ahead of the horse that went down.

    Anna Napravnik aboard "One Dream Union" is listed as off her rides for the rest of the day.

    Ramon Dominguez aboard "Truly Divine" has continued his rides and rode in the 3rd

    Eddie Castro on "Private Details" has been taken to the hospital.

    Cruz Berrios who was on "Hot Chile Soup" is in the first aid at Aqueduct.

    No update on V Santiago who was aboard "All Bets Off"

    No word on the condition of the five horses that went down.

    Well judging from the chart which isn't always accurate it looks like the 5 horse was the only likely fatality and also the cause of the whole thing. I hope Anna is ok, that poor girl has broken enough bones for 10 jockeys. I hope all the rest of them are ok as well of course.

    If anyone hears anything more about the horses and jockeys please let us know. We have TVG on, but they are terrible about updating on accidents.

    Man that was nasty! One of the horses who fell over the first one got back up and was trotting off, one other got up, but 2 of them stayed down. I hope everyone is ok!
    you look vaguely familiar.

    Oh, I hate to hear that. I sold One Dream Union as a yearling and another client bought her. The dam was boarded at the farm I worked at. Hope she's ok.

    Five-horse chain reaction spill at Big A
    By David Grening

    OZONE PARK, N.Y. - One horse died and at least one jockey was injured as part of a gruesome five-horse spill that occurred during the running of Aqueduct's second race on Wednesday.

    Jockey Eddie Castro was taken to Jamaica Hospital and Medical Center complaining of back and neck pain after he was hurled to the ground when his mount, Private Details, broke down approaching the quarter pole. Her spill started a chain reaction as four other horses unseated their jockeys in a race where only two horses finished.

    Private Details, a 3-year-old daughter of Toccet, had to be euthanized on the track with a broken left foreleg, but the four other horses in the spill were reported to be okay.

    Jockey Anna Napravnik, the last of five to be unseated when her mount One Dream Union fell over another horse, took off her remaining three mounts complaining of back pain. Napravnik suffered a broken back in 2007. Her agent, Bob Klesaris, said he would most likely send Napravnik to a local hospital for X-rays.

    Jockey Ramon Dominguez, whose mount Truly Divine was the first horse to fall over Private Details, suffered no injuries and rode the remainder of the card. Victor Santiago who suffered a bump on his forehead, took off his one remaining mount. Joseph Barrios was still being observed in the track's first-aid room and no decision had been made whether he would ride his one other mount.

    Well, I'm not surprised about Private Details... the way she went down...just gave me a very bad feeling. My heart goes out to her connections.

    Keeping my fingers crossed that everyone else (jockeys and horses) heal quickly.

    Sounded like one of the worst wrecks...I just missed it when I turned on TVG.
    It sounds like Private Details was the lone horse that was fatally injured. I can't imagine what those jockeys and poor horses must have felt in those few seconds...

    That rat!! I talked to her yesterday and she didn't tell me she was going!! So she gets to watch Palmer's Approach run again? Lucky girl!

    Bonnie is AWESOME. She is just such a sweet girl, and so easy to deal with. She and 3 other mares were all nestled into their squashed round bale this morning basking in the sun. It was very cute
