DEL MAR, Calif. — Jockey Victor Espinoza has tested positive for coronavirus, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Josh Rubinstein, president of the Del Mar Thorough Club, said a negative test result will be required from jockeys arriving from outside of California or those who travel out of state at least 72 hours before they compete, according to the newspaper.
