The jockey colony at Churchill Downs will get more competitive this fall with the addition of Paco Lopez, Joe Rocco Jr., and David Cohen, who are scheduled to ride their first full meet at the Louisville track.
Robby Albarado, a veteran rider on the Kentucky and New Orleans circuits, has been jailed for domestic violence and two other charges, Louisville police said April 1.
As two more winter Thoroughbred meets prepare to open, management is lining up commitments from jockeys in the wake of walkouts at Churchill Downs and Hoosier Park. Meanwhile, members of an insurance task force that will meet for the first time Nov. 22 hope to maintain focus and expedite recommendations.
If Robby Albarado's luck holds, Jake Delhomme and the Carolina Panthers will upset the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVIII on Sunday.
Robby Albarado sustained a wrist injury that will keep him out of action for several weeks and Corey Lanerie suffered a badly bruised thigh that will keep him out of the saddle for at least Sunday's mounts on a tough day for jockeys at Churchill Downs Saturday.
