LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Jockey Rosie Napravnik will serve a four-day suspension following the Kentucky Derby for her role in the disqualification of Bayern from first to second in the Derby Trial on opening night at Churchill Downs last Saturday.

The penalty is to be served during the first four racing days at Churchill after the Derby – May 8-11. Napravnik’s agent, Derek Ducoing, said the jockey does not intend to appeal.

Napravnik would have received a three-day suspension for the incident but an extra day was added because she was being allowed to ride on Derby Day.
