Desormeaux Taken Off Preakness Mount | BloodHorse.com
After being taken off his mounts at Belmont Park May 18 for running afoul of New York’s rule on alcohol impairment, Kent Desormeaux also lost his mount in the May 19 Preakness (gr. I), Tiger Walk.
Ramon Dominguez will replace Desormeaux on Sagamore Farm’s Tiger Walk, a 30-1 shot trained by Ignacio Correas.
“It was a team decision,” Correas said. “Ramon is a great rider. We’re happy to have him.”
