Ruling Text:

(Corrected Hearing Date) Pursuant to Arkansas Racing Commission (ARC) Rule #2094, the Board of Stewards at Oaklawn Park scheduled a hearing in the matter of Jockey David Cohen on April 11, 2019.

Jockey Cohen was notified of the hearing in a written notice which also advised that, pursuant to ARC Rule #2094, a licensee is entitled to possible charges, to be represented by legal counsel, to present a defense and to cross exam any witnesses that testify against a licensee.

At the hearing, ARC Rule #2163 (c)(3)(f) was listed as a possible violation which involved the use of his riding crop/whip on another jockey during the Eighth Race on April 6, 2019.

Based on the evidence presented to them at the hearing, the Stewards hereby issue the following:

Finding of Facts
1. David Cohen is a jockey at Oaklawn Park and is licensed by the Arkansas Racing Commission. 2. Edgar Morales also is a jockey at Oaklawn Park and is licensed by the Arkansas Racing Commission. 3. ARC Rule #2163 (c)(3)(f) prohibits any jockey from using a riding crop/whip on another jockey in any race in Arkansas. 4. Two jockeys and a valet presented credible evidence that Jockey Cohen used his riding crop/whip on Jockey Morales during the Eighth Race at Oaklawn Park on April 6, 2019, hitting Mr. Morales on the right thigh causing four welts. 5. Mr. Morales confronted Mr. Cohen when they returned to the Jockey's Room following the Eighth Race on April 6, 2019. Mr. Morales testified at the hearing that he said to Mr. Cohen that "You whipped me more than you did your horse." According to Mr. Morales, Mr. Cohen replied "Be patient and don't take me wide." 6. Jockeys can be accidentally be hit by a whip in a race. Mr. Morales said "it was not an accident, he meant to do it." 7. Mr. Morales said he asked why Mr. Cohen had used his whip on him during the race. According to Mr. Morales, Mr. Cohen's response was that he hit Mr. Morales a few times because he had taken Mr. Cohen out near the top of the stretch. 8. Several jockeys and valets testified they had overheard a discussion in the Jockey's Room and that they considered Mr. Cohen's admission as indicative of a deliberate action by Mr. Cohen, that it wasn't an accident as sometimes can happen in close quarters during a race. 9. By striking another jockey in a race, in addition to violating ARC Rule #2163 (c)(3)(f), the Stewards considered Mr. Cohen's actions as jeopardizing the safety of other jockeys and horses in the race as a jockey can lose his balance and fall off a horse as a result of the actions by another jockey or a horse can fall and injure other horses and/or jockeys. 10. Pursuant to ARC Rule #2083 the Stewards shall take notice of any questionable conduct with or without complaint thereof. It is the responsibility of the Stewards to protect the safety of jockeys and horses and any action by a licensee that threatens the safety of jockeys and horses is considered questionable conduct. 11. Mr. Cohen testified that he would not deliberately hit another jockey with his riding crop/whip and that if it happened it was accidental. In reviewing the video of the race, Mr. Cohen explained they were in very tight quarters and he was hitting left handed with very short tight strokes.

Conclusions of Law
1. The Stewards find that Mr. Cohen violated ARC Rule #2163 (c)(3)(f). 2. The Stewards further find that Mr. Cohen deliberately violated ARC Rule #2163 (c)(3)(f). 3. The Stewards find that Mr. Cohen also is in violation of ARC Rule #2094 (a), (b), (c) and (d) which provides reasonable cause for the Stewards to reach these conclusions. 4. Pursuant to ARC Rule #2068, the Stewards shall have the power to punish for violations of the Rules any person subject to their control, and in their discretion, to impose fines or suspensions, or both, for infractions.

Sanctions
The Stewards hereby suspend Mr. Cohen for a period of 60 calendar days starting April 27 and continuing through June 25, 2019

During his period of suspension, Mr. Cohen is denied the privileges of all grounds coming under the jurisdiction of the Arkanssas Racing Commission.
