Jockey Junior Alvarado was taken to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, Ill. following an incident in the fourth race at Arlington Park Friday when his mount, Monkey’s Moonbeam, fell approaching the top of the stretch and threw the rider to the track.

Alvarado was conscious and walked to the track ambulance under his own power and was taken to the hospital for further evaluation where it was determined he suffered a broken collar bone, according to his agent Jay Fedor.

Entering Friday’s races, Alvarado was the track’s leading rider with 19 wins from 79 mounts.
