Jockey Jack Gilligan was in good spirits on Wednesday afternoon following a spill in the fourth race of the card at Fair Grounds in New Orleans, La.

Gilligan, 22, was sent to University of New Orleans Hospital after being unseated from his mount Super Silver, who jumped the rail while on the lead at the top of the stretch. The horse galloped out past the wire and appeared to be in good condition.

“He is talking and can move everything,” Gilligan's agent Liz Morris said. “The x-rays came back clean, but (as of 6:30 p.m. CDT) we are still waiting for results of the scan. He's in good spirits.”

Heading into Wednesday afternoon, Gilligan had won 25 races at the Fair Grounds meet and was 11th leading rider in terms of wins.
