ROSARIO OUT 3 WEEKS?

Edited Report — Jockey Joel Rosario could miss up to three weeks after inuring a rib in a fall at Aqueduct on Dec. 2, reports bloodhorse.com. The year’s leading rider by earnings, Rosario was unseated from his second-race mount Irish Constitution shortly after the wire.

He took off the remainder of Thursday’s mounts, and later went to the hospital when he experienced discomfort breathing.

Agent Ron Anderson suggested that opening day at Santa Anita Park on Dec. 26 could fall in line with Rosario’s return to action.

“Those kind of things, usually it’s a couple or three weeks, then you have to bite the bullet a little bit because you’re in discomfort, anyway,” Anderson told bloodhorse.com.

Rosario had been booked to ride through the weekend at Aqueduct, including on the Bill Mott-trained Olympiad in the G1 Cigar Mile.
