CHRB Suspends Race-Fix Jockey

July 30, 1997|BILL CHRISTINE

The California Horse Racing Board has suspended the license of jockey Richard Pfau, who pleaded guilty Monday to a federal charge of race fixing.

Pfau, who has been licensed in California since 1985, is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 20 for holding back a horse in an Arabian race at Los Alamitos in 1985.

The racing's board suspension bars Pfau from all state tracks, as well as training and betting areas. Under racing's reciprocity rule, Pfau also will be barred at other U.S. tracks.
