Jockeys Romero Maragh and Carlos Montalvo were injured in a spill during the running of the first race Thursday at Gulfstream Park.
Maragh, whose mount Classic Act fell to the turf after clipping heels, was transported to Aventura Hospital, where it was determined he has two broken vertebrae. The leading apprentice jockey has full movement of his extremities.
Montalvo, who was unseated when his mount Prospective Moment jumped over the fallen Classic Act, sustained a hairline fracture in his right ankle.
