A newspaper took a picture of a jockey during his victorious ride on Funny Cide in the 2003 Kentucky Derby.. The photo showed a suspicious object in the jockey’s hand. The paper showed the photo to race stewards who then questioned the jockey. The stewards heard him say “It’s a cue ring to call the outriders.” Outriders are riders who lead racehorses on and off a track. The stewards had never heard of a cue ring and suspected some sort of illegal device. An investigation ensued.
Only the jockey, who speaks heavily accented English, apparently said, “It’s a Q-Ray (an ionized bracelet) to cure the arthritis.” His wife had given him the bracelet for his arthritis.
A libel suit against the paper ensued.
