The Belmont Park stewards suspended jockey Rajiv Maragh seven days
for careless riding aboard Calibrachoa coming out of the gate in
Saturday’s Grade 1, $350,000 Vosburgh Invitational.
Maragh has appealed the suspension and will be permitted to ride until a hearing is held.
A few strides out of the gate in the Vosburgh, Maragh allowed
Calibrachoa, breaking from post 4, to come over on Euroears, who in turn
bumped with Apriority, who stumbled under Alex Solis. Euroears, the
expected front-runner, never got involved and finished last. Apriority
Calibrachoa finished fifth in the race, but no inquiry or objection was lodged.
