NATIONAL ROUNDUP : Suspended Pat Day to Skip the Belmont

June 01, 1993|From Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Jockey Pat Day will not appeal a suspension that will keep him from riding in Saturday's Belmont Stakes.

Day, who rode 1989 Belmont winner Easy Goer, was to ride Cherokee Run for trainer Frank Alexander in the final leg of the Triple Crown. He was suspended by Churchill Downs stewards for careless riding after the disqualification of his mount, Tom Twain, in Saturday's second race.

Day, who has never appealed a suspension, discussed the possibility of an appeal with Alexander on Saturday. He later notified Alexander of his decision not to appeal.

Days' suspension will begin Thursday and will be lifted June 9. Had he appealed, the suspension would have been set aside until a ruling, usually after about two weeks.
