Javier Castellano's appeal denied

Javier Castellano's appeal of his six-day suspension for careless riding in last Friday's Breeders' Cup Marathon was denied by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission, but the jockey received a stay of that denial by a Franklin County Circuit Court Judge on Tuesday afternoon that will enable him to ride in Sunday's Queen Elizabeth Commemorative Cup in Japan.

Castellano was suspended six days for his ride in the Breeders' Cup Marathon, in which he allowed his mount, Prince Will I Am, to come off the rail and interfere with Romp, nearly unseating jockey Martin Garcia. In turn, Romp bothered A.U. Miner and Calvin Borel, who would later seek out and get into a fistfight with Castellano in the Churchill Downs winner's circle.
