Melham out for 15 meetings
Warren Huntly
Wednesday, 29 April 2009

Jockey Ben Melham was suspended for 15 meetings on Wednesday for causing interference in the Lady Medallist Handicap (2100m) at Sandown Lakeside.

Melham pleaded guilty to the charge in which he shifted out from the inside rail at the 50-metre mark when insufficiently clear of other runners on Belong To Ten.

Belong To Ten finished second behind Deraismes and a subsequent protest lodged by Dean Holland aboard the third placegetter Joontoo Gemini was dismissed.

Melham's suspension begins midnight Friday and finishes midnight Saturday, May 16.

The ban, which encompasses five city and 10 country meetings, rules him out of next week's three-day Warrnambool carnival.

Newitt to appeal costly suspension
Monday, 4 May 2009:

Craig Newitt will appeal the severity of a suspension which will cost him the ride on Pompeii Ruler in Singapore in two weeks.

Queensland stewards handed down a 10-meeting penalty after Newitt pleaded guilty to careless riding on Rightfully Yours in Saturday's Prime Minister's Cup at the Gold Coast.

Rightfully Yours lost the race to Mr Hornblower after a protest by Glenn Colless and Newitt was also fined $2,000.

Newitt rode at Sandown on Sunday and said he would lodge the appeal on Monday.

"I will be applying for a stay of proceedings," said Newitt who was hoping it would be heard this week.

As the suspension stands, Newitt will not return until May 22 and will miss the ride on last-start Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner Pompeii Ruler in the Singapore Airlines International Cup (2000m) at Kranji on May 17.

Two Victorian jumps jockeys and a trackwork rider have been suspended for drug related violations.

Jason Evans was outed for a month after returning a positive test to prohibited substances consistent with the use of valium.

Fellow jumps rider Garry Preston was suspended for six months for failing to provide a urine sample at the Bendigo track on December 7.

He is banned from riding in races, trackwork, jump outs and trials with the penalty to be served concurrently with another Preston is serving on a drug related matter.

Track rider Phillip Bratby was outed for two months after testing positive to a banned substance consistent with the use of marijuana in a urine sample taken at Bendigo on December 7.

L. Cassidy was outed a couple of weeks ago got a stay of proceedings and continued to ride.Read somewhere he lost this appeal but is still riding .

Maybe the appeal was to the First Level Appeals Committee and he's intending to appeal their decision to the RAT.

If this is so seems a very flexible system allowing manipulation . :stop:

Racing NSW Stewards today inquired into the betting activities of licensed apprentice jockey James Geppert, in December, 2009.

Evidence was taken from apprentice Geppert, licensed trainer Mrs Alison Smith, master of apprentice Geppert, and Mr Peter Fox, proprietor of the TAB agency in Summer St, Orange.

Closed circuit television footage from the TAB agency was also obtained and viewed during proceedings.

Racing NSW Racecourse Detective, Mr Bob Nicholson, and Chief Steward, CDRA and WRA , Mr Todd Smith, assisted the inquiry.

Apprentice Geppert pleaded guilty to a charge under AR83(c) in that at our around 1:10 pm on the 14 December 2009 at the Summer St, Orange TAB Agency, he placed two bets on thoroughbred races.

Apprentice Geppertís permit to ride in races was suspended for a period of 3 months to commence immediately, and to expire on 2nd June 2010, on which day he may ride.

Apprentice Geppert pleaded guilty to a further charge under AR175 (gg) in that in an interview at Orange Racecourse of the 18 December 2009 with Racing NSW Racecourse Detective, Mr Bob Nicholson, and Chief Steward CDRA and WRA, Mr Todd Smith, when questioned regarding betting activities he made a false statement in that he denied placing the aforementioned bets.

For this offence, apprentice Geppertís permit to ride in races was suspended for a period of 3 months, with the Stewards ruling that the penalty be served concurrently with the suspension incurred under the charge of AR 83 (c).

Apprentice Geppert was advised of his rights of appeal.

If he denied it was placed on thoroughbreds how did the authorities know ?

Someone must have spotted him.
Anyway, I'm pleased that the kid's been lucky on two fronts.  He got away from a pretty nasty fall with a broken collar bone which will keep him out for another month.  So in essence just a two month ban.

Lucky Geppert is out of hospital and in recovery mode
February 14, 2010
fromthehorsesmouth.com.au

Apprentice James Geppert will be out for about six weeks after fracturing his collarbone in a race fall at Wellington on Thursday. The 27-year-old, riding for just more than a year and with 20 winners this season, crashed just after the post when his mount, Noble Crown, trained by his master, Alison Smith, at Orange, lost its footing after finishing third. "James was very lucky he didn't suffer worse injuries," Smith said. "When I saw the replay it looked awful. He should be home on the weekend. Noble Crown is very stiff and sore but there doesn't appear to be any major injury worries. He'll go to the paddock to recover." It was a topsy-turvey day for Smith. Earlier, heavily backed Double Header landed some good wagers winning a maiden with Jeff Kehoe in the saddle. Formerly trained at Hawkesbury and with one unplaced run at Gosford in May last year, Double Header has been a headache horse forced to trial on numerous occasions, the three-year-old gelding showed abundant speed to score a 4Ĺ-length win. Meanwhile, trainer and former amateur jockey John Langworthy has returned to the races after recovering from life-threatening injuries in a trackwork accident at Orange last year.

John Langworthy?  Boy that name rings a bell, his wife Eva I think her name was? trained for a time at Warwick Farm in the early/mid 60's John I think won at least one Corinthian at Randwick (a race for amateur riders) I was only a very young fella back then, they were a great punting stable at the time(but then again most stables were) Mitchell Hudson won a race at Warwick Farm to day, his dad  F.J. (Johnny) trained at W/Farm at around the time and his dad had a horses called Pratten Park owned by the Western Suburbs Leages club members and among other races won the Breeders Plate and VRC Sires beating Quezette and Manihi(Manikato's sire)

Allan Chau Brisbane apprentice.
Didn't see this race but it must have been an extremely poor ride,  a bit short of deliberately  pulling it up going by the guilty plea and the stewards commentary on Chau's "honest and fortright evidence"


"Stewards today concluded an inquiry into apprentice jockey Allan Chauís riding of Degree Of Honour in the Express Motorcycles Maiden Plate 1200m at Ipswich on Wednesday, April 14, 2010. Initial evidence following the race was taken from Chau, trainer Mr Chris Jordan, part-owner Mr J. Barns, and Ms M. Leitch representing apprentice Chauís master, Mr Robert Heathcote. The matter was adjourned on the day to allow Mr Heathcote to be present to represent his apprentice.

At the inquiry on Monday, April 19, stewards heard submissions from Mr Heathcote and further submissions from Chau and Mr Jordan. After considering all of the evidence, Chau was issued with a charge under the provisions of AR135 (b) which reads:

ďThe rider of every horse shall take all reasonable and permissible measures throughout the race to ensure that his horse is given full opportunity to win or to obtain the best possible place in the field.Ē

The specifics of the charge are as follows:

After passing the 900 metre mark he failed to take a position on Degree Of Honour trailing Izachamp one off the rail, instead electing to take a position on the rail behind Hugging;
 

After passing the 500 metre mark he failed to improve on Degree Of Honour when there was a clear opportunity to do so between Hugging and Pride of Heart;
Approaching the 300 metre mark he failed to position Degree Of Honour between Izachamp and Pride of Heart with the purpose of following Zymurgy, which would have ensured a clear run to the finish line.
 

Apprentice Chau pleaded guilty to the charge and made lengthy submissions regarding penalty. Mr Heathcote also made submissions in this regard.

Stewards, when considering penalty, took into account all the unique circumstances of this particular case. They acknowledged the honest and forthright evidence given by Chau and that he had no prior offences under this rule. Stewards were of the view that the appropriate penalty was to suspend Chauís licence to ride in races for a period of six weeks, commencing midnight Monday, April 19, 2010 and to expire at midnight Monday, May 31, 2010.

Stewards advised trainer Chris Jordan that he had not breached the rules of racing and his evidence was accepted."
