Jockey Albarado found guilty of assault

A Jefferson County, Ky., jury has found jockey Robby Albarado guilty of fourth-degree wanton assault of a former girlfriend in a high-profile domestic violence case that occurred Kentucky Derby week.

Albarado was accused of assaulting Carolina Martinez in late April, and arrested May 4, the day he was to ride at Churchill Downs in the Kentucky Oaks, among other races. He was suspended by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission shortly thereafter, but after obtaining a court order, was he able to resume riding, doing so at Arlington Park in June.

Beyond the $500 fine the jury recommended for the assault, the conviction could place Albarado in further legal troubles, and jeopardize his riding career.

Let the courts/wife deal with him.. It really has nothing to do with how he handles the horses. Im sure he will be dealt with properly
Until he race rides dangerously I think racing needs to poke out of his personal life.
It is strange but some people with severe short fuses only snap at other lesser beings: HUMANS and leave the nice ones, HORSES, alone
I agree horsfan, he shouldn't be around horses if he could just snap and hurt somebody like that. If he doesn't go to jail, he should at least be suspended for the remainder of the year or until the Breeder's Cup is over.
I think he needs to go to jail. There is no place for Domestic Abuse in this world. He does not need to be around animals with the apparent temper that he has
