I can't believe that a jockey can get "suspended" three times for carrying an illegal device...three times? Suspension shouldn't even be an option...after the second infraction he should have lost his license permanently, in all states. Why aren't industry participants who repeatedly break rules (rules that are in place to prevent serious injury or death) completely banned? I'm at a loss. The thoroughbred racing industry is in serious peril in terms of public support and public trust and the fact that this dude can still ride racehorses is beyond me. I'm only a fan, but I am a huge fan, and stuff like this completely turns me off...if it's causing me to second guess this sport, I can only imagine what it's doing to the casual fan.
