Jockeys Leparoux, Desormeaux suspended 3 days

Jockeys Julien Leparoux and Kent Desormeaux have been suspended

by stewards for three days for their actions during the Clark

Handicap on Friday at Churchill Downs.

Leparoux finished first aboard Successful Dan but the winner was

dropped to third after officials ruled Successful Dan interfered

with Redding Colliery at the top of the stretch.

Desormeaux finished fourth aboard Demarcation but was dropped to

last for running into Dubious Miss with less than a quarter-mile to

go in the race.

The suspensions will run from Dec. 2-4 if they choose not to

appeal.
