Jaramillo Out A Week After Spill Before Wire; Bettor Misses $571,000 Payout

Jockey Emisael Jaramillo avoided serious injury when he fell from his mount yards from victory in a juvenile race Thursday at Gulfstream Park. According to his agent, the 40-year-old rider is expected to be out a week with body soreness.

In the 10th race, a one-mile maiden claiming event, Jaramillo surged to the lead in mid-stretch aboard the 2-year-old colt Cryogenic and looked a clear winner. The horse appeared to shy from Jaramillo's whip and the jockey was thrown as the rest of the field charged to the wire.

Jaramillo was transported to a local hospital for observation.

“The X-rays showed that nothing was broken, but he is very sore,” agent Bryce Soth said. “He's going to take a week to recover and we'll go from there.”

While Jaramillo escaped serious injury, one unlucky bettor suffered a terrible beat.

Going into the final race of the Rainbow Six, the bettor was alive to a lone winning ticket featuring the 8-1 Cryogenic. The payout would've been $571,744 had Cryogenic not lost his rider strides before the finish line. For five correct, the Rainbow Six paid $1,935.52.
