Maragh suspended for careless riding

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 finished seventh.


Calibrachoa finished fifth in the race, but no inquiry or objection was lodged.

As the rest of the article says... " This was the second time that the stewards suspended Maragh for a gate infraction in a major race. In the Belmont Stakes, Maragh was suspended for allowing Isn’t He Perfect to come over on Mucho Macho Man, who in turn squeezed Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom. Animal Kingdom came out of the Belmont with a leg fracture and has been sidelined the remainder of the year." He ruined a 3 year old campaign that I would say "WOULD" have been electric for Animal Kingdom. For Animal Kingdom to finish 2nd in the Belmont after such a disaster is remarkable. I know he would have obliterated Uncle Mo, Stay Thirsty, and all of the other 3 year old colts this year. He has serious attitude, a want for the win, and could pick them off one by one! I guess I find it hard to forgive Rijiv, especially after this.
