Bowman adds to top Eagle Farm book
Brad Waters
Monday, 1 June 2009


Hugh Bowman was confirmed All Silent’s Stradbroke Handicap rider on Monday morning and the leading Sydney jockey has also picked up a solid book of mounts for Eagle Farm support card.

Damien Oliver’s suspension has opened the door for Bowman to take the Brisbane Cup ride on Ballack for Flemington trainer Danny O’Brien.

Bowman has been aboard Ballack on one previous occasion for a second place behind quality galloper Road To Rock over the Flemington spring carnival.

The top Sydney rider will also combine with John O’Shea aboard the promising filly Lagerphone in the Listed Sir Douglas Wadley Stakes.

O’Shea has also booked Bowman to ride his in-form gelding Informality in the Queensland Guineas.

Bowman has also picked up the ride on Take This Waltz in the Group I TJ Smith Stakes.

BOWMAN'S BUSMAN'S HOLIDAY - VIDEO INSIGHT - Part 1
BOWMAN'S BUSMAN'S HOLIDAY - VIDEO INSIGHT - Part 1 - They know everything apart from how to bowl straight. Or bat. In Part 1 of this exclusive, Aussie Jockey Hugh Bowman lies about his standard of golf, fibs about his preference in jockeys and moans about the motorway system of Great Britain. A terrific jockey and a great bloke describes his two months riding in England in 2011.

Part 2 is really good.

The best rider in the land outside of the Dazzler...  :noteworthy:

Nick Williams said after his win on Mourayan that he was Austrailia's No1 jockey.

Another trainer said the same the other day, can't remember which one.

he seems to be very good on leaders dictating the pace to perfection, does seem to boxseat a lot as well. TJ would have loved him.

Bowman banned for improper riding at Caulfield

Sydney rider Hugh Bowman has a date with the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board after stewards banned him for 20 meetings for improper riding at Caulfield.

Chad Schofield received a 32-meeting suspension for improper riding at Mornington last month while Bowman became the second rider to face the charge in the spring.

Bowman said he would certainly appeal the penalty that could keep him out until Oaks Day.

Stewards took exception with Bowman’s riding on Light Up Manhattan at the 1500m of the Group III Caulfield Classic, deeming the champion jockey "placed unnecessary pressure” on Glen Boss to take his mount Magicool down to the inside rail.

Bowman pleaded not guilty to the charge, arguing his intention was to hold a three-wide line behind Craig Newitt’s mount War Point and not push Magicool to the inside.

Boss told stewards he wanted to race one off the rail. Bowman said he "encouraged” his rival to take his mount down to the fence with the backwash from the incident causing Ben Melham to severely check his mount Home Run Hero.

"There was unnecessary pressure on Glen Boss’s mount for some distance,” chief steward Terry Bailey told Bowman.

"If everybody rode like that, where would we be?”

Bailey told Bowman his actions jeopardised the safety of Boss and Melham but the jockey disputed the steward’s assertion, asking him to point out where his fellow rider was in danger.

The stewards rejected Bowman’s evidence "his intention was simply holding his ground” before ruling he must start his penalty at midnight on Saturday.

"Nothing surprises me down here,” Bowman said when asked if he was surprised he was charged with improper riding.

Saw the overhead vision. If that's improper riding we will have another 20 jocks booted out next meeting

At least the stewards are consistent as in my opinion this was nearly identical to the Chad Schofield case.

While I think Bowman is a decent sort of bloke and not one to disregard the rules or indulge in questionable tactics........ watching the overhead vision of this incident it seems to me he shouldn't have done what he did...Boss was entitled to hold the two wide position and Bowman was lucky he didn't cause an accident so improper riding was the inevitable outcome......the difference between his record  and young Schofield as far as his prospects of an appeal is concerned is that Bowman doesn't have the handicap of the antecedent suspensions that Chad accumulated.....which resulted in a lesser period of suspension ....and may possibly result in a better outcome on appeal. Giddy Up. :thumbsup:

HUGH Bowman can partner Johnny Murtagh’s horse Mutual Regard in the Melbourne Cup.

The Racing Appeals & Disciplinary Board today paved the way for the champion Sydney-based jockey to ride in the $6.2 million Melbourne Cup when it varied Bowman’s 20-meeting suspension on an improper riding charge.

Bowman appealed against the severity of the penalty imposed following his ride on  Light Up Manhattan in last Saturday’s Caulfield Classic.

RAD Board chairman Judge Russell Lewis said several factors weighed in the favour of Bowman when the Board decided to cut four meetings off the imposed penalty.

Judge Lewis noted that the Board accepted that general deterrence is an over riding principal in the paramount consideration of safety of riders.

But, Judge Lewis said that Bowman’s improper riding was not in the “most serious category” of the charge.

He also said that Bowman’s good record over 18 years as a jockey was another factor as was the fact that he had not previously been charged with improper riding and his plea of guilty, albeit a late one.

Bowman described as “fair” the RAD Board hearing and said he was “satisfied” with the outcome.

He said Murtagh had been good enough to save the ride for him on Mutual Regard pending the decision of his appeal.

“The Melbourne Cup is the biggest race in the Australian racing calendar and Derby Day is the biggest day,” Bowman said.

“All in all I’m satisfied with the Board’s decision. I’ll miss some good rides, but I have excellent support from owners.

“We have to understand that safety is paramount.”

Des O'Keeffe, assisting Bowman, asked the RAD Board to reduce Bowman's penalty by a quarter - five days - so he could resume riding on Victoria Derby day.

The RAD Board heard that the meetings, which include Cox Plate, Derby and Melbourne Cup days, Bowman would miss carry more than $7 million in prizemoney.

Bowman described the meetings as "the three biggest days of the Australian racing calendar.

"For me this is the most significant time of the year," Bowman said.

Judge Lewis replied: " it's a pity you didn't think about that when you rode improperly at Caufield."

Bowman told the RAD Board that it was not until Sunday morning when he read the VCAT finding into the recent Chad Schofield review case that he realised that he was guilty as stewards charged.

He said he rang the RV offices first thing Monday morning to inform stewards that he would not challenge the finding, but appeal solely against the severity.

Dayle Brown, the RV Integrity General Manager, said stewards got the Bowman penalty in terms of duration "pretty right"

Brown said the meetings that Bowman would miss are significant, but noted that in the prevailing circumstances safety of riders must be paramount.

"Safety is the over riding consideration," Brown said.

"General deterrence must be the key."

Bowman will miss the ride on  Terravista in the Manikato,  Criterion in the Cox Plate and was on  Preferment for Chris Waller in the Derby.


Des O'Keefe as his brief .......seems Des is getting a name for hisself representing jockeys in appeals.....I've no quibble with the decision ...half expected a reduction not like Craig Williams who wasn't afforded the same consideration and missed riding the Cup winner......only question for Judge Lewis is what in his opinion constitutes "the most serious category of improper riding "...possibly knocking one down is the answer. Giddy Up :whistle:

Checking for the reasons on the RAD board decision this is what is available :- Surely there has to be reasons.....no mention that reasons will be delivered some time soon.....quite different to what is accepted as standard procedure that administrative tribunals are required to give reasons. :o

DECISION: Appeal allowed.
Penalty varied so that the period of suspension will now expire at midnight on Saturday, 1 November 2014 (16 race meetings.)

Reasons for decision received today .Giddy Up

Victoria 21 October 2014
RACING APPEALS AND DISCIPLINARY BOARD
(Appellate Jurisdiction)
Bowman v Racing Victoria Stewards
Reasons for Decision
Judge R Lewis Chair
Mr B Forrest Deputy
Mr D McGee Member
This is an appeal by Hugh Bowman against the severity of the penalty imposed by the stewards
for improper riding.
The penalty imposed by the stewards was a suspension for 20 race meetings effective from
midnight 18 October 2014 to midnight 5 November 2014.
The Board accepts Mr Brown’s submission that the overriding sentencing principle in this case is
general deterrence, the safety of riders and their mounts being the paramount consideration.
The Board finds, as Mr Brown conceded, that the appellant’s riding was not in the category of the
most serious examples of improper riding.
The Board accepts that the following mitigating factors have been established.
First, the appellant’s good record over 18 years of riding in Australia and overseas. In particular
he has no previous convictions for improper riding. That said, the appellant is a highly
experienced rider and has frequently ridden in Victoria and the Board takes that into account.
Secondly, the Board accepts that the appellant has in substance pleaded guilty, albeit at a late
stage.
The Board is of the opinion that the period of suspension should be varied so that the suspension
will expire at midnight on Saturday, 1 November 2014.
