NEW YORK (AP)

Jockey Javier Castellano was thrown from his mount after the ninth race at Aqueduct on Wednesday and was taken to a hospital because of pain in the chest.

The 33-year-old Castellano, the leading rider in the country this year with 317 victories and purse earnings of $25.5 million, was unseated when Atlantic Dream stumbled and fell after finishing last in the 1 1/16-mile maiden race. Castellano was taken to North Shore University Hospital.

Atlantic Dreams did not appear to be seriously injured and left the track.
