Robby Albarado is an amazing jockey, he has hit the news several times for his spectacular career, but today the reason behind him being in the news was a very shameful one, he is accused of allegedly strangling his wife Kimber Alvarado. Keep reading our story to know all about that alleged domestic assault mess and find out more details about Robby and Kimber.
We all know who Kimber’s famous jockey hubby is, right? He is the 37 year-old jockey from Lafayette, Louisiana who has made Louisville, Kentucky his home where he resides with his beautiful wife and gorgeous children – two sons, Kaden and Kash and their daughter Larkin. The Albarados have become quite fond of Kentucky, that is where they established their foundation, dedicated to help the lives of young people emotional and financially. He personally is a 2005 Fair Grounds Racing Hall of Fame inductee and holds a record of over 4,000 wins, certainly the latest news about him allegedly attacking his wife doesn’t look very good on his resume, so what exactly happened there?
According to Huffington Post the police showed up at Kimber’s house on Thursday night where they arrested her husband, she told them he broke her cell phone, grabbed her by her neck and she had red marks to prove it. Emergency Medical Services try to treat her but she didn’t want to although she asked for an emergency protective order. You can see Kimber Albarado’s picture at her home with her children here.

Apparently the fight between them started as an argument that went terribly wrong, so sad!
