Blake Shinn moves to Sydney

2 April 2007
Racing NSW
 
Racing NSW reports that Melbourne jockey Blake Shinn will join the Gai Waterhouse Stable next Monday. 
 
Now 19yo, Shinn became the first ever apprentice to win the Scobie Breasley Medal in 2005, following his second to fellow apprentice Nick Ryan in the Victorian Metropolitan Jockeys' Premiership - the first time two apprentices had finished first and second. 
 
In 2005, Shinn won his first Group 1 race on Demerger in the Adelaide Cup. Shinn won the 2005-06 Victorian State Apprentices' Premiership with 103 wins. He rode 34 metropolitan winners, finishing second to Ben Melham (43) in the Metropolitan Apprentices' Premiership. 
 
Blake Shinn will make a permanent move to Sydney this weekend and will able to ride down to 52kg. The Waterhouse Stable said that Shinn can be booked for race rides by contacting Reece Murphy on 0425 855 585.

I am and have been a huge fan of Shinn for quite a while now. Yes, he is agressive, but I think he is being singled out now, especially as he has gained a bit of a "reputation". I would suspect if Beadman or Boss did the same it would be marked as "competitive riding"

Maybe Shinn is being singled out, but he is guilty of all those charges.  What I can't understand is this:  when he cops a suspension of 6 meetings in an early race, why does he not temper his riding to avoid a further infringement?  He went out a few races later, did the same thing and copped a further suspension of 9 meetings.

The stewards are as weak as water in allowing these sentences to be served concurrently when they are separate incidents.   :thumbsdown: His suspensions should, in my opinion, be served consecutively.  Imagine the outcry and the grief if his first infringement brought down another horse and rider and then the second infringement did the same!!!

A total of 15 weeks on the sideline may, just may, have brought him to his senses. :-\

Just ask any jockey who has been brought down by careless riding how he or she feels about it, the injuries, the time off, the healing, the need to get back to race fitness, the fact that he or she can still walk!!!!  We have, over the years, lost too many jockeys (good, bad or indifferent, it doesn't matter) to falls in races.  Some die, some become quadriplegics and others become paraplegic.  Most are forgotten within a year or so and that is a very sad affair. :'(

OL - while I agree with you (was on Rubukka)  :rant: and it's knocked me out of the Big6  :wavecry: I can't blame him too much, yes if he had stayed on the fence it was his run and he wins but he was trailing Sir Slick, which has stopped from time to time (although racing better at the moment)

The % ride is to get off the leaders heals as more often than not that run doesn't come. Unfortunately for us it did this time  :rant:

He wouldnt have been very old though... what happened to him? At least he saw his son do what every jockey dreams of though.

Shinn to miss Doomben features
Brad Waters
Monday, 11 May 2009


Top jockey Blake Shinn will miss the Doomben Cup and Doomben 10,000 meetings after being suspended for careless riding on Saturday.

Shinn was suspended until May 29 and fined $500 after being found guilty of causing interference aboard Rabbuka in the Chairmanís Handicap.
 
Shinn decided not to appeal his suspension.
Last seasonís Sydney premier jockey will miss the ride on Rabbuka in the Doomben Cup and Bank Robber in the Doomben 10,000, who he rode to a narrow defeat in the BTC Cup on Saturday.

Swiss Aceís trainer Mick Mair must produce a vetís certificate before the gelding races again in the aftermath of Swiss Aceís dismal BTC Cup effort behind Duporth.

Mair told stewards Swiss Ace had pulled up with no problems but a Queensland Racing vetís examination found the Oakleigh Plate winner to be coughing after event.

There is the explanation  :/

Strange to comment, that the horse has pulled up fine with out having blood tests taken and or the horse being scoped, could be anything from swallowing  a clump of dirt in the run to a throat infection or even a bleeding attack  :huh:

When was Swiss Ace gelded? It must have been sometime between Saturday and whenever Brad Waters wrote this. :wub:

Yes mate, did notice, he didn't want to go into the gates, haven't noticed him do that before, but I haven't really paid any attention to him behind the gates before either :confused1:

Also last start sweated up badly, which I also haven't noticed before, maybe had enough , or may even have a virus which can cause horses to act abnormally, but when they do something out of the norm, normally means something is a miss.

Coughing after an event is always a worry  :(

Maybe they need the Vet's Cert to prove he's been gelded since Saturday   :lol:   :lol:
