Jockey James Thornton died Sunday, two days after injuring his head in a fall from his horse at Charles Town Races. He was 54. Thornton of Edgewood, Md., died at Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va., track spokesman Paul Espinosa said. He had surgery Friday night to relieve pressure on his brain, but his family ruled out further surgery "due to a poor prognosis," Espinosa said. Thornton fell early during the first race Friday while riding Shifty Four in tight quarters.
