Delta Downs: Jockey Alexis Batista Recovering From Injuries; Due For More Tests

Jockey Alexis Batista is scheduled to undergo more tests as the result of injuries suffered in a spill Nov. 2 at Delta Downs.

According to a report by the Daily Racing Form, Batista was initially diagnosed with a hairline fracture of his C-7 vertebrae. However, his agent, Antonio Floyd, told the Form that x-rays taken earlier this week were “inconclusive”, so he will now undergo an MRI.

There isn’t a timeline set for Batista’s return to the saddle.
