A jockey was recovering Saturday after breaking his collar bone at Arlington Park this week.

Officials say Junior Alvarado's horse, Monkey's Moonbeam, fell Friday as it approached the top of the stretch and threw Alvarado to the track.

The jockey was taken to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights.

Alvarado was the track's top rider entering Friday's race.
