GRANTS PASS — A horse is dead and two jockeys sidelined after a two-horse accident at Grants Pass Downs.

Jockey Frank Williams said his horse hit uneven ground on the final turn of the 12th race Sunday. He said he could hear the horse's ankle break, but he couldn't get the heavy horse to pull up.

The horse was euthanized.

Williams and the other jockey suffered fractures.
