JOCKEY TO PAY RESTITUTION, SERVE HOME CONFINEMENT

A jockey who admitted fixing a horse race at Los Alamitos (Calif.) two years ago was ordered to pay $1,340 restitution to the owner of the horse he reined in, and to serve four months of home confinement.

Richard Pfau, 35, also was sentenced to three years' probation by U.S. District Judge William Rea.

Pfau pleaded guilty July 28 in Los Angeles federal court to accepting $2,100 and a percentage of a "pick six" purse to hold back his mount, Expresss, in a Sept. 28, 1995, race at Los Alamitos. The horse, owned by Nancy Gjerset, finished fourth.
