OZONE PARK, N.Y. - Jockey Ramon Dominguez was listed in stable condition Friday evening, but was to be kept overnight at nearby Jamaica Hospital Medical Center for observation after being involved in a spill during the running of Aqueduct's seventh race.

 As of 6:30 p.m. Friday, Dominguez had a bruise over his right eye, but would likely undergo additional tests, including a CT scan, to determine if there were further injuries.

 "He has a bruised eye and they're going to observe him overnight," Sharon Dominguez, the rider's wife, said in a conference room at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center surrounded by other family members as well as jockey Irad Ortiz Jr. "He's stable and resting."

 Dominguez was sitting behind horses aboard 4-5 favorite Convocation in Friday's seventh race. Coming to the top of the stretch, Convocation clipped heels with Sovereign Default, prompting Convocation to fall forward and hurling Dominguez hard to the inner dirt course.

 A trailing horse, Straight Fax, jumped over Convocation, but it wasn't clear whether or not that horse clipped Dominguez.

 Dominguez was hurriedly placed on a stretcher and into an ambulance and taken directly to Jamaica, the closest hospital to Aqueduct.

 Convocation, who raced for Todd Pletcher and owner Mike Repole and who was claimed out of the race by David Jacobson, appeared to escape the incident unharmed.

 Dominguez, who earlier in the day picked up career victory 4,984, is the two-time defending Eclipse Award winning rider. He was expected to receive his third straight Eclipse Award on Saturday night at an awards ceremony at Gulfstream Park.

 Dominguez had been planning to ride at Aqueduct on Saturday and then catch a flight to south Florida in time to attend the awards. Sharon Rodriguez said that trip is unlikely to happen.

 "I don't think we're going tomorrow," she said. "That would be quite a miracle."

 In 2012, Dominguez set a North American earnings record with $25,582,252. He won 341 races from 1,398 mounts despite missing nearly two months because of a neck injury in the spring and a foot injury in the fall.

Convocation fell in the 7th race at the Big 'A' Friday. He was claimed. How is Convocation doing? Ramon has a fratured skull. I don't think Convocation clipped heels as the DRF charts stated.
