BOWMAN APPEAL RESULTS
charge 1 – Bowman pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding, being that near the 500m he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of Chestnut Coat (JPN) resulting in that horse being checked when tightened for room.
Bowman was originally suspended for 12 meetings. The RAD Board upheld the appeal and reduced the sentence to 10 meetings.
Charge 2 – Bowman pleaded guilty to a charge for using his whip 12 times prior to the 100m, which is seven times more than permitted.
Bowman was originally outed for eight meetings but the RAD Board upheld the appeal and varied the penalty to a $10,000 fine.
Charge 3 – Bowman pleaded guilty to a charge for returning to scale more than a half kilogram over his declared riding weight of 55 kilograms.
Bowman originally has his licence to ride in races suspended for 21 meetings. The RAD Board upheld the appeal and varied that to 13 meetings.
Bowman can return riding on November 27, two days after the Japan Cup, which Bowman won aboard Cheval Grand. He was to have ridden the same horse this year.
Bowman will be able to ride at the Hong Kong International meeting on December 9.
Bowman’s legal counsel successfully argued that Bowman’s 21 meeting suspension for weighing in just 100 grams overweight had been excessive.
