Jockey asks for reinstatement after arrest

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Jockey Robby Albarado has gone before
state horse racing regulators in hopes of resuming his riding
career that's been sidetracked since he was charged with assault.
The veteran rider who is third on the all-time wins list at
Churchill Downs has been sidelined since being arrested on an
assault charge earlier this month.
Albarado's attorney, Mindy Coleman, said Wednesday during a
hearing before the license review committee of the Kentucky Horse
Racing Commission that the suspension is causing hardship for the
jockey and his three children.
The panel, which was meeting in Lexington, did not issue an
immediate decision.
Albarado has also been unable to ride elsewhere because other
states are honoring the Kentucky suspension.
