2012 Kentucky Derby: Jockey Robby Albarado Arrested On Assault, Replaced For Kentucky Oaks

Jockey Robby Albarado, who has participated in eight Kentucky Derby races, was arrested for assualt on Friday according to Barbara Borden, the Acting Chief State Seward.

Albarado had been expected to mount Hard Not To Like in the Kentucky Oaks race, the fillies-only version of the Kentucky Derby. Because of this arrest, he will not participate in the Oaks.

While he does not currently have a mount for the Kentucky Derby, there is always the possibility that a horse could wind up open on Derby day and he could ride then. However this assault charge could torpedo those plans.

The Derby is scheduled for a post time of 6:24 p.m. from Churchill Downs in Lexington, Ky. There will be massive TV coverage on NBC Sports Network prior to the running and NBC will have the broadcast of the race.
