Thursday, 23 April 2009: Jockey Nash Rawiller has appealed against the length of penalty resulting from a careless riding suspension incurred at Royal Randwick on April 18.
Rawiller was charged by Racing NSW stewards after riding Manhattan Rain to win the AJC Sires' Produce Stakes.
He was found guilty of a charge of careless riding in that he permitted his mount to shift in approaching the 1000m when insufficiently clear of Romanus, which was taken in onto Phelan Ready, resulting in Phelan Ready striking the running rail, losing its position and being severely checked.
Rawiller's licence to ride in races was suspended for a period to commence on Sunday Apri, 26 and expire on Thursday May 21 on which day he may ride.
He successfully applied for a stay of proceedings until his appeal is heard by the NSW Racing Appeal Panel at 9:30am on April 30.
