Zimmerman has license pulled


Ramsey Zimmerman, the leading jockey at Fairmount Park, has had his racing license revoked after failing a state-mandated drug test, track general manager Brian Zander and Zimmerman's agent, Mark Cooper, said on Tuesday.

Zimmerman did not return repeated calls to his cell phone seeking comment. Cooper did not know whether Zimmerman planned to appeal and would say only, "we had a little bad luck."

Zimmerman has acknowledged using illegal substances in the past.
