Just watched a former top rider on one at the Sunshine Coast . This bloke has had a heap of injuries. Tonight's ride indicated his mount wasn't there , or sadly , he has lost his nerve. It has happened to better than him. Looking forward to the Steward's Report.

Skye Bogenhuber had a decent book of rides for once at Toowoomba last night and did the job in fine style a winning treble and a couple of placegetters.."the Queen of Clifford Park" she was called by the race caller on one winner..she is a very good rider but doesn't get the opportunity she deserves IMO ...hardly ever rides in town sometimes in northern NSW bush meetings.... the Coast but mainly in Toowoomba...she might get more offers if she had a rider's agent..... there's no one listed for her in the current RACE magazine...if she picked one who has the connections to give her more exposure in town she would do well ...rides at a light weight and and from watching TV appears very strong . :thumbsup:

Jockey recovering in hospital after fall
Kate Watts@katewatts_   10:11am

Queensland jockey Skye Bogenhuber is conscious and recovering in hospital after a nasty fall at Toowoomba.
Skye was dislodged from her mount at jumpouts on Tuesday morning and taken straight to the Toowoomba Base Hospital, with Racing Queensland reporting she had been drifting in and out of consciousness at the time.

Doctors have advised that Skye has a small bleed on the brain and she will undergo further scans on Wednesday and will be assessed by neurologists.

Australian Jockeys’ Association OH&S Officer, Kevin Ring, said on Wednesday morning that he had spoken to Skye’s family and there was hope her injuries were not as serious as previously feared.

“Obviously she does have a slight bleed on the brain and suffered concussion and will need to have additional scans today,” he said

“But I spoke to her brother last night and the family says she is now awake and aware of everything that is happening.

 “Hopefully if the scans are positive and all of the inflammation settles down then she will be okay to stay in Toowoomba and will just need some extended time to rest and recover.

One report I saw is that the bleed has stopped and things are looking up for her but peace and quiet and no visitors for a couple of days.

Another jockey faces betting charge
Racing Article Racing.com Staff@Racing   12 March, 2019

Another Australian jockey has been charged with betting, with Daniel Schmitt to face a charge over 71 bets places across a two-and-a-half-year period.

Racing Victoria stewards issued one charge against Schmitt following an investigation into a number of bets placed by him on thoroughbred horse races between January 2016 and September 2018.

Schmitt has been charged with breaching AR 115(1)(c) of the Australian Rules of Racing which states:

AR 115(1) A jockey or apprentice jockey must not:

(c) bet, or have any interest in a bet, or facilitate a bet on any race.

Just last month, apprentice jockey Chris Caserta was charged with having six bets on thoroughbred racing.

RV stewards allege that Schmitt made, and/or facilitated and/or had an interest in the making of, 71 bets on thoroughbred horse races between January 2016 and September 2018, with the bets placed totalling $2050.

None of the 71 bets placed were on races Schmitt rode in.

The charge issued against Schmitt will be heard by the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board on a date to be fixed.

It is not the first time Schmitt has been in trouble with racing officials. In 2005, he was suspended for nine months for giving false evidence in the Leone Chiara inquiry and then in 2015 he was forced to write apologies to two AFL players and then then chief steward Terry Bailey for offensive tweets.

ENDS

Crikey its taken the super snoops a long time to bring charges two-and-a-half-years.........fancy that for all that time he was betting ... a battler trying to get a quid when he should have known better and they only found out recently .......interesting when the RAD board delves into it how come his betting escaped attention for such a lengthy period...maybe if he had been caught earlier it might have saved him from a more serious penalty...and possibly suffering less losses ..unless he was a better judge than most punters .....it's only academic in this case he's caught with the first element of the charge  "bet"...... but what does "facilitate a bet" mean.....getting a punter to put a bet on...that's covered by the "interest in a bet" .......one example the McDonald case ........facilitate means to make it easy or less difficult according to my dictionary......I can't think of how that would apply.....possibly redundant in the absence of knowing of any prior charges under that description. :shrug:

Taking the fun out of racing...in a one horse race at a bush picnic meeting the stewards fined the jock $100 for a salute ...no danger to others seems an over reaction.

Reminds me of the old Amish paradox about banning sexual intercourse, because it could lead to dancing . .


At least there was no excess use of the whip

Racing Victoria stewards have moved against another jockey for illegal betting with long-time rider Nick Souquet charged for placing 10 bets on thoroughbred racing in November last year.

Souquet, 45, is a veteran of 30 years in the saddle in and around the border area of Albury with 1199 winners to his name.
RV stewards announced the charge on Monday:
‘’Mr Souquet has been charged with breaching AR 115(1)(c) of the Australian Rules of Racing which states:

Point of order. What Mr Souquet has allegedly done is certainly not "illegal ". It may be against the Rules of Racing , but that does not deem it "illegal "

RVL may be inviting a review of the rules in jockeys favour

Jockeys should be allowed to bet on meetings where they do not have a ride --  a further protection would require jockeys to bet onlywith a nominated account which stewrads would be authorized to audit online.

What a joke Racing "Integrity" really is . This bloke gets 9 weeks for having $125 worth of bets. Remind me what the jockey got for causing an incident at Randwick on Saturday which could have cost a fellow rider his life or even seen him end up in a wheelchair for the rest of his days. And they think they dispense some form of justice these quasi coppers. Total joke.

Jockey suspended for four months
about an hour ago by Punters.com.au

Victorian-based jockey Lee Smith was on Wednesday handed a four-month suspension from race-riding for producing a positive to a banned substance.

The 42-year-old was found to have an undisclosed substance in a sample provided at the Benalla trials in March, which led to the stewards handing down their penalty following an inquiry at Geelong racecourse.

"Racing Victoria (RV) stewards today inquired into a report from Racing Analytical Services Limited (RASL) that a urine sample provided by licensed jockey Lee Smith at Benalla Trials on 19 March 2019 contained a banned substance under Australian Rule of Racing AR136(1)," the stewards' report read.

"Mr Smith pleaded guilty to a charge under the provisions of AR139(1)(a) having provided a sample of his urine, which was found on analysis to contain a banned substance.

"Mr Smith's licence to ride in races was suspended for a period of four months commencing 9 April 2019, the date on which he was stood down from all riding and horse handling duties, and concluding at midnight on 9 August 2019.

"In assessing penalty, stewards took into account Mr Smith's guilty plea, personal circumstances and all other relevant factors.

"Stewards ordered that Mr Smith is permitted to resume riding trackwork, official trials and horse handling once he has provided a sample that is clear of any banned substance under AR136(1)."

Smith had 197 race rides this season across NSW and Victoria for seven winners, most recently riding Choreograph to victory at Echuca earlier this month.

Victorian-based jockey facing four charges relating to betting
By Luke Sheehan 42 minutes ago
Irish jumps jockey Martin KellyImage: Getty
Irish jumps jockey Martin Kelly will face four charges in relation to involvement in bets, and providing misleading evidence to stewards.

Racing Victoria stewards on Wednesday revealed Kelly is facing four charges, in relation to 47 bets placed on thoroughbred racing from January 1, 2016 to June 21 that year. The total outlay of those bets was $869.03.

RV stewards will also allege Kelly had involvement in bets placed on races he was involved in, relating to the following instances:

"In contravention of AR 115(1)(e) on 30 May 2016, Mr Kelly made and/or had an interest in a bet of $25.00 on Shearer which he rode in Race 2 at Hamilton on 30 May 2016.

"In contravention of AR 115(1)(e) on 30 May 2016, Mr Kelly made and/or had an interest in a bet of $25.00 on Gold Spur in Race 2 at Hamilton on 30 May 2016 when he rode Shearer in the same race.

"In contravention of AR 115(1)(e) on 5 June 2016, Mr Kelly made and/or had an interest in a bet of $21.01 on Arribos which he rode in Race 3 at Warrnambool on 5 June 2016.

"In contravention of AR 115(1)(e) on 19 June 2016, Mr Kelly made and/or had an interest in a bet on Shearer of $20.00 which he rode in Race 3 at Hamilton on 19 June 2016."

Kelly was also charged relating to the authorisation of 59 deposits tallying $2,405 into the betting account of registered stable employee Wayne Cuddihy, from May 25, 2017 to November 9, 2018.

Across several interviews earlier in 2019, Kelly provided evidence in relation to the inquiry into that particular betting activity - and he's also been charged with attempting to mislead stewards.

Kelly indicated that Cuddihy had placed the bets. Cuddihy has also been charged, for providing false or misleading evidence.

Neither Kelly nor Cuddihy have a date set for their respective Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board hearings.

Kelly was to the fore at last week's Warrnambool May carnival, winning aboard roughie Pentomatic in the Benchmark 120 steeplechase on the middle day of the carnival.

Pull the chain

Someone needs to pull the chain on this nonsense  -- whatever the rule, there must be acceptable ways for a jockey to have a relative or friend put a bet on that reflects the jockeys preferences.

I am more concerned about the latitude owners and trainers have to 'not bet' on their own runners but 'can bet' on others in the same race.

Extract from GC Aquis Park stewards report 8th June

"Manaya – Passing the 800m App. J. Guthmann-Chesters offside rein broke. This resulted in App. Guthmann-Chester having limited control of the mare which then shifted to the outside of the track and remained wide for the remainder of the event. Stewards in the presence of stable representative for M. Costa, Mr M. Morrison, inspected the reins and found them to be in a satisfactory condition and noted that the breakage was not due to stress. Mr Morrison further advised that the reins had only been recently purchased and were used for the second time today. Stewards accepted the reasons tendered by Mr Morrison and acknowledged that the reins were in a suitable condition. '

Replay is race 7 clearly see the broken rein a good effort by young JAG to win the race with the steering at his disposal.

Many years ago on the sand track at Albion Park aka The Creek jockey John Harbutt steered Sumarco ito a win n the First division the main race of the day round the tight course with only one rein...wonderful horsemanship.

Jumps rider faces betting charges
 
Racing.com Staff@Racing
3:19pm

Jumps jockey Martin Kelly will face four illegal betting charges before the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board on Wednesday.

Kelly was charged under Australian racing rules 115(1)(c), 115(1)(e) and 232(i), which deal with a jockey who bets, has an interest in a bet or facilitates a bet.
The final charge is for giving stewards false and misleading evidence.

Stewards have also charged stable employee Wayne Cuddihy for giving false and misleading evidence in that he told stewards the bets placed in Kelly’s betting account were indeed placed by him.

Kelly’s four charges a
CHARGE ONE: AR 115(1)(c)
AR 115 (1) A jockey or apprentice jockey must not: (c) bet, or have any interest in a bet, or facilitate a bet, on any race;

Stewards also allege that on June 5, 2016, Mr Keyll made and/or had an interest in a bet of $21.01 on Arribos, which he rode in race three at Warrnambool that day and $20 on Shearer in the same race.

CHARGE THREE: AR 115(1)(c)
AR 115 (1) A jockey or apprentice jockey must not: (c) bet, or have any interest in a bet, or facilitate a bet, on any race;

CHARGE FOUR: AR 232(i)
AR 232 A person must not: (i) give any evidence at an interview, investigation, inquiry, hearing and/or appeal which is false or misleading.
This year, on January 16, February 15 and March 26 , Mr Kelly was interviewed by Racing Victoria stewards in relation to thoroughbred bets placed on his betting account.
Throughout the course of the interviews, Mr Kelly gave evidence that the bets placed on thoroughbred horses were not placed by him but placed by registered stable employee Wayne Cuddidy. Contrary to AR 232 (I), the evidence given by Mr Kelly during the interviews was false and/or misleading.

Martin Kelly banned for 20 months
Andrew Eddy@fastisheddy   4:28pm

Australia's leading jumps jockey, Martin Kelly, has been disqualified for 20 months on four betting-related charges.

The reigning Tommy Corrigan Medal winner on Wednesday pleaded guilty to all charges before the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board, including one of placing four bets on races in which he rode.

After the hearing, the 29-year-old apologised for his actions and said he had a fair hearing.

"I thought it was very fair," he said. "I knew what I was doing when I was doing it.

"If it wasn't for the help of Martin Talty (Victorian Jockeys' Association), Des O'Keeffe (Australian Jockeys' Association) and Paul O'Sullivan (barrister), I would be lost.

"I've got to take the slap on the wrist. At least it's not an injury keeping me out of the game for 20 months.

"I will be back better than ever.

"It's a bitter pill to swallow but I am going to come back more hungry than ever. (It's) something to look forward to. I've never done anything else other than racing."

Kelly said his betting had been motivated completely by boredom.

"Throughout the summer riding down where I am riding in Bass - it is the middle of nowhere," he added. "Pure boredom. I wouldn't even go to the pub to have a bet. I was just at home on the coach with an Ipad.

"I think the biggest bet I had was $15 each way or $20 each way.

"I am not a criminal or anything. It is what it is."

The second charge - where Kelly was found to have bet on four races where he rode, carries a minimum mandatory term of two years disqualification but the three-man RAD Board panel allowed for special circumstances in that he pleaded guilty, the bets were all small, his record was good and he was given strong character evidence by AJA chairman Des O'Keeffe.

The RAD Board ordered a three-month disqualification on charges one and three that deal with placing at least 47 bets on thoroughbred races in which he was not involved. That sanction is to be served concurrently with the 16-month ban.

With the fourth charge, the RAD Board ruled a four-month disqualification was necessary for providing false and misleading evidence to stewards. That ban was cumulative with the one for charge two, taking his penalty to 20 months.

Kelly's former housemate Wayne Cuddihy - the son of former top Sydney rider Peter - was given a three-month disqualification for giving false evidence to stewards concerning who placed the bets.
