Those of my ilk will know the activities of a past jockey, JC.

Maybe new new JC should have some interest turned to him

Queensland jockey Luke Tarrant has been banned for a month on betting charges.

Caloundra-based jockey Luke Tarrant has been suspended for a month on betting charges despite claiming a bogus account had been set up in his name without his knowledge.

Stewards opened an inquiry into a report received from corporate bookmaker Ladbrokes, regarding alleged betting activities by Tarrant.

After taking initial evidence earlier this month the inquiry was adjourned until this week to obtain further material and hear submissions from Tarrant.

After considering the evidence Tarrant was charged with offences under racing rules which bar jockeys from betting.

Stewards alleged Tarrant places three bets totalling $55 on international thoroughbred races on March 18 and May 4 .

The bets were made using an account in his name.

Tarrant pleaded not guilty to the charge and in defence argued the account had been fraudulently made in his name and that he had no knowledge of the bets.

However, stewards said they were satisfied here was sufficient personal information provided to Ladbrokes, and therefore on the balance of probabilities, Tarrant was the holder of the account and responsible for the bets in question.

Tarrant was suspended for a month starting on Sunday at midnight and expiring at midnight on July 30.

Tarrant has the option to lodge an application for an internal review.

Racing community mourns death of Mikaela Claridge

Posted in: Horse Racing News

Jockey Mikaela Claridge sadly passed away in a fall at Cranbourne on Friday

The racing community on Friday is mourning the death of recently married apprentice jockey Mikaela Claridge who died after a fall during track work at Cranbourne.

Mikaela Claridge, 22, lost her life from injuries sustained when she fell from her horse at Cranbourne on Friday morning.

“Mikaela was dislodged from her horse while riding on the sand trails on the southern side of the Training Centre at approximately 4.35am. She was attended to by the on-course paramedic but was tragically unable to be saved,” Racing Victoria said in a statement.

After injury interrupted her career, Claridge returned to riding in 2018 and won her first race in September last year.

She was indentured to trainer Ken Keys at Cranbourne and won another 28 races, most recently at Sale on July 11.

“On behalf of the Victorian racing industry, I would like to extend our prayers and heartfelt condolences to Mikaela’s family and friends on the tragic news of her passing as a result of a training accident this morning,” RV chief executive Giles Thompson said.

“Mikaela was a talented young rider who was pursuing a career in the sport she loved. She was a much loved and valuable member of the racing community and her sad passing is being felt by many within our industry today.”

Cranbourne Turf Club chief executive Neil Bainbridge said the local racing community is saddened by her death.

“On behalf of the Club, I wish to extend our sincere condolences to Mikaela’s family and friends on her tragic passing. She was a popular member of the Cranbourne racing community and will be sadly missed.”

WorkSafe is investigating Friday’s incident.


Only 22yo and recently married a very sad day. :rip:

Darwin rider second killed on track

A MUCH-loved Darwin jockey and police officer died in a shocking race fall at Darwin’s Fannie Bay track yesterday.

It was the second jockey death in two days following the death of an apprentice in Victoria on Friday.

In yesterday’s tragedy Melanie Tyndall, 32, was riding Restless in Race 3 when she clipped the horse in front and was dislodged just as the horses entered the home straight.
A horse trailing her trampled Tyndall (pictured) when she fell to the ground.

Initial reports were Tyndall was conscious and was taken to Royal Darwin Hospital for observation, but that changed rapidly when word spread that Tyndall had died when she arrived at RDH.

The final race at Fannie Bay was abandoned once news spread that Tyndall had died from her injuries.

Last night Darwin Turf Club would not comment on the incident.

In 2013, leading jockey Simone Montgomerie was killed on Darwin Cup day when she fell in an eerily similar spot to where Tyndall fell yesterday.

In March, the club posted on Facebook how Tyndall was juggling racing and policing.

“When Mel experienced some struggles with her weight, she took a break from race riding and focused her efforts on policing, completing her training in the NT Police Force and last year graduating to Constable Tyndall,” they wrote at the time.

“Mel said it was only after she had been in the NT Police force that her weight significantly dropped and she realised there might an opportunity for her to continue race riding.”

Mikaela Claridge, 22, lost her life after a fall during trackwork at Cranbourne in Victoria on Friday.

Sydney jockeys yesterday wore black arm bands for the second race at Rosehill Gardens as a mark of respect.

Claridge had only been race riding for a year and had ridden 29 winners.
She married in April.

She was reportedly doing routine cantering exercises on Cranbourne’s sand trail when the accident happened.


Another tragic end to a young woman's life. :rip:

Jockey Tegan Harrison faces several months on the sidelines after being injured in a Doomben fall.
Jockey Tegan Harrison looks likely to avoid surgery after being injured in a fall at Doomben but could still be sidelined for up to three months.
Harrison was one of four jockeys involved in a chain reaction fall on Monday.
The other three Michael Cahill, Brad Stewart and Jake Bayliss escaped serious injury.
Harrison was riding Nineoneone when the filly fell at the 800m and in the backwash Pintang Prince (Stewart), Missionary Bay (Cahill) and Northern Dragon (Bayliss) dislodged their riders.
Harrison and Bayliss were treated by paramedics for about 20 minutes on the track before both were taken to hospital.
Cahill was examined by the club doctor and cleared to ride in the final race.
"I was very lucky," he said.
Stewart was also examined by the doctor and cleared of any apparent major injury.
Harrison was knocked out as a result of the fall but regained consciousness while being treated.
Later hospital tests showed she had suffered fractures to five vertebrae, two ribs and her sternum.
She also re-injured a collarbone which kept her out of the saddle for several weeks two years ago.
Harrison is not expected to need surgery but her partner, Gold Coast trainer Ben Hull, said at this stage it appeared she could miss several months of riding.
Queensland Jockeys Association boss Glen Prentice said every assistance would be given to Harrison to help her recovery.
"Tegan is very popular and we are all wanting to help in any way we can," he said.
Prentice said at this stage it was not clear how long Harrison would remain in hospital.
Bayliss was initially diagnosed with a sore hip and arm but has been discharged from hospital after being cleared of any breaks.
He will undergo a concussion test later this week but hopes to ride at the weekend.
Chief steward Peter Chadwick said an inquiry into the fall would be adjourned until Harrison was fit to give evidence.

Jockeys charged over weight infringement
Racing.com Staff@Racing

Jockeys Jacob Rule and Samuel Payne are set to appear before the Victorian Racing Tribunal after a post-race incident at Bendigo in September.

Rule rode Highland Jakk in the opening race at Bendigo on September 26 and before weighing in, handed his saddle to Payne to reduce his weight.

Rule then weighed in 1.2kg above his mount's declared weight, which was in breach of the Australian Rules of Racing.

Racing Victoria stewards have charged both jockeys with 'improper conduct' and providing 'false or misleading evidence' during a subsequent inquiry.

An additional charge has been imposed on Rule for weighing in heavy, in excess of 0.5kg above his advertised weight of 58kg.

It was Rule's first ride in more than two months after spending time overseeing the spring campaign of the Robert Hickmott-trained Django Freeman, which ended on September 20 when the German import sustained a bone chip injury.

Rule and Payne will appear before the VRT on a date yet to be fixed.
