Kentucky doubles Borel suspension
By Matt Hegarty
LEXINGTON, Ky. - The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission here on Tuesday voted unanimously to double a three-day suspension handed down to jockey Calvin Borel for careless riding in November.
The vote to double the suspension reflected the commission's desire to discourage jockeys and trainers from filing appeals to avoid serving days at certain times of the year, according to Lisa Underwood, the commision's executive director.
"We're trying to put a stop to these frivolous appeals," Underwood said.
