Stewards at Los Alamitos suspended jockey Alex Bautista for 30 days for violating California Horse Racing Board rules 1872 (failure to fulfill jockey agreement – repeat violation) and 1902 (conduct detrimental to horse racing) following his unexcused absence the evening of Nov. 30 when he was scheduled to ride seven horses on the nine-race program.
According to the CHRB, Bautista has failed to fulfill his riding obligations numerous times this year, resulting in fines and suspensions of increasing severity. During the term of this suspension (Dec. 4, 2006, through Jan. 2, 2007), all license privileges are suspended and Bautista is denied access to the premises.
