The Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks 138 are not without some drama on the eve of horse racing's biggest weekend. Word has leaked that one of the weekend's jockeys has been arrested and he will not be allowed to compete at least in Friday's running of the Oaks. Albarado has run in eight different Kentucky Derby Races, finishing third at two different points.
BREAKING: Jockey Robby Albarado arrested, according to Acting Chief State Steward Barbara Borden. He's off today's mounts. #KyOaks— Gregory Hall (@gregoryahall) May 4, 2012
Hard Not To Like was a 20/1 bet on tonight's race in the Kentucky Oaks 138. Thus it's not as if the frontrunner, like Grace Hall, lost their main jockey. Still, to lose the chance to race on one of the biggest stages in the sport is a major letdown.
