Thistledown: Jockey Faith Schorr suspended 74 days two days after being fined $1,000


The penalties keep piling up for jockey Faith Schorr at Thistledown.

After receiving a $1,000 fine on Monday for standing up before the finish line and costing her mount a victory in the seventh race last Friday, the Thistledown stewards released two more rulings here Wednesday that will keep Schorr on the sidelines for 74 days.

Schorr was fined $250 and suspended 60 days for "failing to supply a valid urine sample" last Saturday and attempting to "give a fraudulent sample and then refusing to give a urine sample."

Schorr was suspended an additional 14 days for an incident that occurred in the fourth race on Saturday. During the race, jockey Marcello Cardoso handed his whip to Schorr at the quarter pole. Schorr’s mount went on to finish fourth while Cardoso’s mount finished sixth. Schorr was suspended for "careless riding" and "asking for the whip of another jockey and receiving the whip."

On Thursday, Schorr said she did not plan on appealing any of the rulings.

"We’re going to accept the consequences," she said. "I’m going to rest up and return fresh and ready to go."

Schorr, 20, was raised in Ohio and West Virginia, She began riding in 2009 and has won 172 races from 1,313 mounts, a 13 percent winning average. She is fifth in races won at Thistledown this year with 34 victories.
