When Lacking a Pitcher Fight....

.... ain't nothin' like a jockey fight. I would have PAID to see this:

P-Val, Berrio tussle in Jocks' room

DEL MAR, Calif. - Jockeys Patrick Valenzuela and Omar Berrio both face possible disciplinary action from Del Mar's stewards following a fight in the jockeys' room after Monday's third race, in which a horse Valenzuela rode to victory was disqualified in a controversial decision.
According to eyewitnesses, Berrio and Valenzuela traded blows in a foyer of the jockeys' room, then continued to battle in the main part of the room. Jockeys Frank Alvarado, who is friendly with Berrio, and Max Corrales also became entangled, before all four were separated by track security guards and California Horse Racing Board personnel.

You gotta love a good jockey fight, particularly those involving Julie Krone. There’s just something about the idea of a woman whose physique is exactly like that of a gymnast’s whaling away at a guy with four, five inches on her. It’s like Mary Lou Retton Gone Wild.
