Long, Castanon Get Days for Whip-Swinging Fight

May 19, 1994|BOB MIESZERSKI

Jockey Brian Long was suspended for 10 days and fellow rider Antonio Castanon was suspended for five days Wednesday because of their whip-swinging battle through the stretch of Sunday's 10th race at Hollywood Park and their brief wrestling match afterward.

Long, the aggressor in the incident after Castanon's mount, Someluckything, veered out and interfered with Long's Vibrato Star, was suspended May 21-June 2. Castanon was suspended May 21-27.

A winner with two of 20 mounts through Sunday, Long was cited for striking with his whip at another jockey during the race and for his conduct after the race. Castanon, who had one victory in 26 mounts through the meeting's first 15 days, was cited only for striking with his whip at another rider.
