ARCADIA, Calif. – Jockey Mike Smith has been suspended three days by Santa Anita’s stewards, beginning this Sunday, as a result of his mount McKinzie being disqualified from victory in the San Felipe Stakes on Saturday.

McKinzie narrowly outfinished Bolt d’Oro in the San Felipe, but was taken down after a lengthy inquiry.

The suspension encompasses racing days at Santa Anita on March 18, 22, and 23.
