January 22, 1986|BILL CHRISTINE

Rafael Meza and Martin Pedroza, two of the jockeys injured in a four-horse spill at Santa Anita Monday, were released from the hospital Tuesday, apparently with only minor injuries.

They were held overnight for observation at Arcadia Methodist Hospital and a spokesman there said that Meza and Pedroza appeared to have come out of the accident with only bumps and bruises.

Eddie Delahoussaye and Antonio Castanon, two of the other jockeys involved in the spill, returned to ride races later in the day Monday, Delahoussaye replacing Meza on Mountain Bear and then winning the $112,150 San Gorgonio Handicap.
