Talamo will serve suspension this weekend

Jockey Joe Talamo can resume riding at Del Mar on Nov. 13 after he serves a three-day suspension this weekend.

Jockey Joe Talamo, who finished in a tie for seventh at the Del Mar summer meeting with 19 wins, will miss the first weekend of the meeting because of a suspension.

Recently, Talamo lost an appeal of a three-day suspension given in July for causing interference in the Oceanside Stakes at Del Mar on July 18. Talamo rode Texas Ryano, who was disqualified from eighth and placed 10th.

The suspension runs from Friday through Sunday. Talamo can resume riding at Del Mar on Nov. 13.

They suspend Joe for something that happened in July but turn a blind eye to what happened during the Breeders Cup Classic. Even Laffit Pincay was still talking about it today on HRTV that Bayern should have been disqualified. How can all the racing insiders agree that Bayern should have been DQ'd but the stewards, Martin Garcia, Bob Baffert, and the owners can't figure out why people are upset.

Really?! After being knocked sideways in the Breeders Cop Classic, where there was no DQ (unacceptable) and no suspension? Ridiculous!!!

DQ'd from 8th to 10th !!! I just gotta ask... Are these Stewards the same trio of clowns that got paid for doing nothing during the Breeders Cup Classic?
