California Horse Racing Board has approved a measure that puts into place a two-day minimum suspension for jockeys that violate riding rules during a race.

According to a report in the BloodHorse, the previous rule did not have a minimum number of days required. In recent years, stewards have usually imposed a minimum of three days on suspensions.

Alan Balch, executive director of the California Thoroughbred Trainers, had requested that a decision on the matter be delayed, in order to have further discussions on the topic. The CHRB did not agree to another delay, and went ahead and voted unanimously to approve the measure.
