Three Maryland riders suspended


The Maryland Racing stewards have suspended Horacio Karamanos, Abel Castellano, and Stewart Elliott five days each for riding in a careless manner at Laurel Park last week. Karamanos was granted permission to ride Bright Gold for Pimlico-based trainer Mary Eppler in Thursday's Buffalo Trace Stakes at Keeneland, and to ride United in the Japan Racing Association at Laurel on Saturday.
