In addition to some jockey's plans to ride at CD during Kentucky Derby week, jockey points will be affected by when suspensions are served.
This article is from today's DRF.
"SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. - Jockeys Manny Franco, Javier Castellano, and Tyler Gaffalione have dropped appeals of three-day suspensions handed them by the stewards at this meet and will serve their days over the next two weeks.
Franco, the rider of leading Kentucky Derby contender Tiz the Law, will miss Wednesday through Friday. Franco was suspended for his ride on Price Talk in the second race here on July 16, which resulted in a disqualification of that horse from first to fourth.
Castellano will take his days Aug. 26-28 after dropping his appeal of a suspension handed him for his ride on Value Engineering in the first race here on July 17. Value Engineering was disqualified from second to third for bumping Bundibunan.
Gaffalione will take his days Aug. 28-30 for his ride on Unholy Alliance, who finished first in the fourth race on July 31 and was not disqualified. Because Gaffalione is heading to Kentucky to ride Kentucky Derby week at Churchill Downs, his last day at Saratoga will be Aug. 27"

Thanks JB , Gaffalione is the big one for our contest with around half our group having him including our leader Bitowisdom. Those of us who have Alvarado will hope to make up some ground in his absence.
Seems strange to get days and not be DQ’d . I’m sure that Jose Ortiz will be in trouble for his DQ on Imprimis on August 8th but imagine he will appeal and carry it over.
