Suspended jockey Robby Albarado has lost his initial appeal to resume his riding career.

A committee of the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission turned down Albarado's request Wednesday to have his suspension lifted.

The veteran jockey was suspended in Kentucky following his arrest on Kentucky Oaks Day.

He's accused of accosting a woman who said she was trying to break up with him.

Since his arrest, Albarado has not been able to ride, not only in Kentucky, but in other states that are honoring the decision.

The racing commission's license review committee continued Albarado's case until the criminal matter is resolved.

According to court records, this is the second straight spring that Albarado has fought an assault charge.

Last spring, he was charged following an altercation with his wife, according to court records.  The charges in that case were later dismissed.  His wife has filed for divorce.

Albarado is scheduled to go to trial on the most recent charges on July 18, 2012.

Albarado is third on the all-time wins list at Churchill Downs.  He has won more than 4,300 races in his career. 

He lost his mount in the Kentucky Oaks this year because of his arrest and suspension.  He did not have a ride in the Kentucky Derby.
