Noticed tonight (14 March) that Lisa is out in front in the Jockey's Premiership in NZ, but not by much.

Lisa Cropp suspended at The Farm in Brisbane from 16 June until 16 September for shoving her arm up going to the post, one would expect her to appeal her three months out.

Does it really matter who it is?  There's not one jockey who should be celebrating before the winning post.

Lisa Cropp appeal upheld
The First Level Appeal Committee (Panel) today unanimously upheld jockey Lisa Cropp’s application against Queensland Racing Stewards for a charge under AR137 (b) at Eagle Farm on June 11, 2007 for failing to ride her mount out in the Brisbane Cup.

The Panel unanimously found the pictorial evidence inconclusive and were not satisfied on the balance of probabilities of guilt of jockey Cropp.

The Panel also ordered a refund of the appeal fee.

Queensland Racing Chief Steward, Mr Reid Sanders, is appealing the Panel’s decision to the Racing Appeals Tribunal.

Well i am glad she got off, if she had of won she would of only copped a fine, and for a horse to pull up that quick on the line i think is a load of rubbish, maybe 10 to 15m out , but not right on the line, their momentum would carry them over the line from that far out.

And anyway why wasn't Robbo repremanded or fined , he was looking left when he went across the line , and it was very obvious he wasn't riding his horse out.  ::)

And Reid Saunders sounds like a sore loser to me wanting to appeal the decision

Item in today's Courier-Mail tells us that New Zealand courts have granted Lisa Cropp permission to keep riding pending another appeal after testing positive to methamphetamine at Hamilton on 7 May 05.  She's been fighting this case through the courts on the basis that it was an illegal search.  She has 12 mounts in Singapore this weekend.

NZ's Judicial Control Authority has finished hearing evidence at its headline-hogging inquiry into premiership-winning Kiwi jockey Lisa Cropp's positive test to methamphetamine at Te Rapa back in May 2005.  Lawyers for both sides have now been told to deliver their final submissions to the JCA by November 24, with the opportunity to speak to those submissions on November 26-27. Cropp has been NZ champion jockey for 3 of the past 4 years (but is currently sidelined with a broken leg).

from www.racingxtra.com

The Judicial Control Authority (JCA) Committee has found Jockey Lisa Cropp guilty of a breach of Rule 528 of the Rules of Racing.

New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing (NZTR) laid this charge in May 2005 following urine samples testing positive to methamphetamine and amphetamine.

Penalty and costs will be determined at a later date following a teleconference to be held next week.

Paul Bittar, NZTR Chief Executive, stated that, "The processes employed by our integrity team to ensure standards of safety are upheld have been scrutinised and studied more than probably any other racing jurisdiction through this case, and these processes, in particular our drug testing protocols, have been fully vindicated. NZTR is pleased to have now received the Committee's decision."

"Most importantly, this decision supports the strong line the industry takes on Jockey safety and sends a clear message that prohibited substances will not be tolerated in our sport."

"It is regrettable that this case has taken so long to reach resolution but this was, in large part, a result of challenges on various issues heard through the High Court, the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court."

She'll be up for her own costs for sure and probably the other sides.

Be a massive impost.She took a gamble and it didn't pay off .Settlement day is approaching.

I always admired her ability as a rider pity about the drugs.

Todays newspaper says she could possibly face costs of $500,000

It also says that the maximum penalty in NZ for drug use is a 12 month suspension and $8760 fine

New Zealand: An apprentice jockey is believed to have stolen almost NZ$20,000 from disgraced former champion jockey Lisa Cropp before fleeing New Zealand on a stolen passport.

 
Lisa Cropp: former champion rider

 
 New Zealand's Sunday Star-Times has reported that Malaysian-born Mohammed Yusof, 32, allegedly electronically transferred money from Cropp's account into his TAB betting account several times during August and September and had withdrawn a significant sum in the past fortnight.

Yusof is reported to have flown out of New Zealand on Saturday, accompanied by his wife and three young children, using a passport stolen from a fellow Malaysian jockey.

Yusof, who rode 12 winners last season, recently received a nine month ban from racing following a positive test for methamphetamine at Matamata racecourse on July 23.

During his hearing in front of the Judicial Control Authority on October 12 at which the jockey pleaded guilty, it was stated that Yusof, who was stood down from riding on July 27, was the sole wage earner of his family and had "a number of personal debts".  As such no fine was imposed, with the jockey instead ordered to pay a total of $1,750 in costs. 

The Sunday Star-Times reported that Cambridge police detective Bill Crowe said an alert for Yusof had been placed with Customs and Interpol had also been informed. New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing's (NZTR) racecourse inspector Bryan McKenzie is also said to be liaising with police, Immigration, and the TAB over the case.

Yusof was apprenticed to the stable of Michael and Paul Moroney, who landed Saturday's Group 1 VRC Derby with Monaco Consul, but his contract was terminated on August 15 following his positive drug test. Having entered New Zealand on a work permit, Yusof's work visa expired when he lost his job, although an application had allegedly been lodged for renewal.

At the JCA hearing, Yusof's former employer Paul Moroney stated that he believed the jockey to have been the subject of undue attention from the stewards, having undergone drug testing on at least three occasions prior to his positive test.

Although Yusof has no previous drugs charges, he received a two month suspension and a $3,700 fine last December for two counts of misconducts involving assaults on two stable staff.

In June, Cropp, champion jockey in New Zealand in 2005-06 and 2006-07, also received a nine month ban from racing and a record fine of $99,500, following a long-running saga relating to a positive test for methamphetamine in June 2005.

Cropp appealed the legality of the original test, claiming a human rights infringement, and fought her case in the High Court, Court of Appeal, and New Zealand Supreme Court. After the Supreme Court ruled the test valid, Cropp was finally found guilty earlier this year.

With no payment of the fine made to NZTR, Cropp was placed on racing's unpaid forfeit list on September 2, effectively disqualifying her from all domestic and international racing.

Due to the Cropp case, the use of drugswithin New Zealand's jockey colony has received much attention recently. With three of the four riders currently listed as disqualified by NZTR placed on the list due to drug related offences, the maximum period of disqualification for serious drug offences was increased from 12 months to five years from October 5 this year.

She's well and truly back. 3 winners Sandown - 1 MV last night.

Good advertisement for any jockey who's faced adversity or battled the officials.

Agreed, she is on fire at the moment.

Her vigour puts some of the other "blokes" to shame !!

Having seen her up close the other day, she, umm, look there is no other
way to say this...... she has a head like a robbers dog !!
Perhaps her colourful past is reflected there !!
So un PC i know but cant be argued !!

Still, if she can ride like a demon, who bloody cares, good on her !!
