Two jockeys were injured in a spill during the running of the seventh race Thursday night at the Meadowlands. The accident occurred shortly after the start of the mile and 70-yard race when Highly Tuned, ridden by Aaron Gryder, and Bingo Dancer, with jockey Jorge Vargas, clipped heels and fell. Both riders were taken by ambulance to Hackensack Medical Center for evaluation. Highly Tuned was destroyed, but Bingo Dancer was not seriously injured.

Jockey Aaron Gryder's life is not just a story. It's an odyssey. When he climbs aboard Blingo on Saturday in the Grade I Santa Anita Handicap, the most prestigious race for older thoroughbreds west of the Mississippi, he will be an afterthought. Gryder doesn't mind that. He understands. This Big Cap, after all, has three of the best horses in the world. All three could have easily skipped this one and headed for Dubai and the March 29 Dubai World Cup, with a $10-million purse that makes it the richest in the world.

Aaron Gryder spent a good part of Friday in the air. So, what else is new? The jockey, who recently turned 20, has been a travelin' man in 1990. When Gryder climbs aboard No Marker in today's $326,300 Cabrillo Handicap, it will mean he has ridden in 10 states this year--California being added to New Jersey, New York, Illinois, Washington, Kentucky, Nebraska, Minnesota, Michigan and Kansas. No doubt, this will be the most welcome stop on Gryder's itinerary.

To 18-year-old jockey Aaron Gryder, Monday was just like all of the other days lately. One of those wake-me-I-must-be-dreaming afternoons. First race, aboard 16-1 shot White Silts: seventh. Second race, on 43-1 longshot Dr. Neumann: eighth. Fifth race, riding 9-1 Katoon: ninth. Sixth race, with 6-1 pick Princess Pinnochio: seventh. Eighth race, on 24-1 longshot Charlatan: fourth (in a seven-horse field). Ninth race, aboard 8-1 Vital Score: seventh. What a nightmare.

Asteroid Field, a filly bred in Kentucky but raced exclusively in Europe, made a successful U.S. debut Sunday with a winning stretch drive to capture the $200,000 Matriarch Stakes at Hollywood Park. Ridden by Aaron Gryder, who had his whip knocked out of his hand late in the race, the 4-year-old daughter of Forli beat the favored Nashmeel by a half-length. The Irish-bred Any Song finished 2 3/4 lengths further back in the field of 10 fillies and mares.

The jockey standings at Hollywood Park this season are top-weighted with some familiar names. Laffit Pincay, who has won more than 2,000 races at Hollywood Park in his career, the highest total by any jockey except Bill Shoemaker, heads the list with 65 wins through the first 58 days. Just behind Pincay are Chris McCarron, Eddie Delahoussaye, Gary Stevens and Pat Valenzuela, all consistent winners on the Southern California circuit.
