Did anyone see Ollie being interviewed on Sky yesterday explaining the overweight situation.  Said thought his penalty was too harsh!

No mention of the poor punters who lost (by a nostril) money on his ride on Road to Rock? No consideration whatsoever to how much money punters might have lost.............................myself included!  

Amazing!

Does ANYONE in this industry consider the punters besides the punters??????    :what: :what:

Reckon Road to Rock will be a good bet this weekend!!!!!!

I felt sorry for Paul Spry getting a year suspension for taking Frusemide(lasix),the guy obviously retains fluid so takes this medication to help get rid of it.......I take frusemide and am caught between a rock and a hard place as I retain a lot of fluid I need it for my heart failure but as I'm also in Renal failure it isn't doing my health any good,.....I don't see how a jockey can get any other benefit from the medication as it certainly doesn't give you energy to ride harder. :chin:

Racing NSW stewards have suspended Coffs Harbour-based jockey Matthew Bennett for six weeks after he was found guilty of failing to give a mount its "full opportunity to win or obtain the best possible place” at Murwillumbah in June.
 Stewards penalised the rider for his handling of Foreign News in the Riverview Hotel Class 3 Handicap (1200m) on June 24.
 
Foreign News finished ninth, beaten 5-1/4 lengths when a $4 favourite.
 
Stewards ruled the following:
 
a) Between the start until approaching the 800 metres he allowed Foreign News to settle in a position some 10 lengths off the leader Northern Pride and some five lengths off Industrialism, the runner in direct advance of his mount, resulting in Foreign News racing further out of its ground then was necessary and when it was reasonable and permissible for him to have taken up a position closer to the lead.
 
b) Between the 800 metres and the 600 metres he failed in an endeavour to improve the position of Foreign News which was racing in a position some 10 lengths off the leader Northern Praise and some six lengths off Industrialism, the runner in direct advance of his mount.
 
c) Between the 600 metres and the 400 metres, when positioned some 10 lengths off the leader Northern Praise, he made no concerted effort to improve his position on Foreign News when it was reasonable and permissible in all circumstances for him to do so.
 
d) Between the 400 metres and the 200 metres he rode Foreign News in all circumstances with insufficient vigour and purpose when it was reasonable and permissible for him to ride with purpose and vigour in an attempt to improve.
 
e) Between the 200 metres and the 100 metres when a run was available between Millhousen and Flagges Flying, following the eventual winner Private Express, he failed to ride his mount along with vigour and purpose in order to take that run when it was reasonable and permissible to do so.
 
f) In all the circumstances he rode Foreign News over the final 600 metres of the event with insufficient vigour and insufficient purpose

22 Jan 2016

Racing Queensland Stewards have today suspended Apprentice Jockey Jag Guthmann-Chester from racing for a period of three months after he pleaded guilty to providing a sample which upon analysis was found to contain a banned substance.

Guthmann-Chester today pleaded guilty to a charge under AR81A(1)(a) after returning a positive to cannabis following routine sampling at the Gold Coast.

At an inquiry held today in the presence of his master Bruce Hill, it was the Stewards’ decision that the jockey be suspended from racing for a period of three months, commencing from the date in which he was stood down on 11 January 2016 and to expire on 11 April 2016.

In determining an appropriate penalty in this matter, RQ Stewards took into account the submissions made by Guthmann-Chester as well as his guilty plea, along with similar penalty precedents.

Guthmann-Chester will be suspended from race riding and trackwork but Stewards have granted him permission to continue with general stablehand duties.

As per Racing Queensland protocol, Guthmann-Chester has been offered counselling through Racing Queensland’s Jockey Welfare Officer Jenny Schofield and also access to Sports Psychologist Rachel Jones.

Under the new Racing Queensland Apprentice Program, which commenced in January 2015, all apprentices attend drug and alcohol awareness programs on a regular basis.

The Program also involves coping and resilience workshops in relation to life as a professional jockey.

Maskiell suspended for failing to ride one out at Valley
    Brad Waters - 14 Jul 2016   
Kyle Maskiell became the second apprentice in four days to receive a suspension for failing to ride out one of his mounts at Moonee Valley on Wednesday.

Tahlia Hope was suspended for the same offence at Warrnambool on Sunday before Maskiell incurred an eight-meeting ban when he pleaded guilty to failing to ride out Luckyi’mbarefoot to the finish of the Ranvet Handicap (1600m).

Luckyi’mbarefoot finished fifth but stewards deemed Maskiell may have cost the Matthew Williams-trained galloper fourth placing after the young jockey stopped riding when the horse was making ground late in the race.

Maskiell was severely reprimanded for the same offence in the second race of the day before stewards suspended him from midnight on Saturday until July 25.

Holly McKechnie also received an eight-meeting ban when she pleaded guilty to careless riding aboard Diamond Duke in the Ranvet Handicap.

The suspension was McKechnie’s second in as many days after she was suspended at Murtoa on Tuesday. Stewards tacked McKechnie’s Moonee Valley suspension on to her Murtoa penalty, meaning the latest ban will keep her out of the saddle until midnight on August 1.

Jockey disqualified for 18 months

Racenet
    Tom Walter - 07 Feb 2017   
A country-based New South Wales jockey has been disqualified for 18 months after pleading guilty to using an illegal device on a horse in trackwork.

 

Stewards held an inquiry on Monday following a report received from Port Macquarie Race Club trackwork supervisor Greg Wyndham on Saturday January 7, notifying that Jamie Quinnell had used an unapproved Bakos whip on a horse during a training gallop.

The whip was found to have a length of copper electrical wire fixed to the flap.

The horse in question, Far Out was due to race in a benchmark 55 handicap at Port Macquarie on the same day but was withdrawn by order of the stewards.

After hearing additional evidence from Far Out's trainer Marc Quinn, Port Macquarie racecourse manager Mark Prior, Racing NSW veterinarian Craig Suann, stablehand Liam Blanch, and veterinarian Adrian Owen, stewards charged Quinnell with using an "improper contrivance capable of affecting the performance of a horse in a race, official trial, jump-out, or training gallop."

The mandatory minimum penalty for such an offence is normally two years but Quinnell's guilty plea and cooperation earned him a 25 percent reduction.

Quinnell was also penalised on three other charges in relation to animal cruelty however stewards agreed that the jockey would serve his penalties concurrently and commence his ban immediately.

He will be permitted to re-apply for a riding licence on August 6, 2018.

Stewards advised Quinnell of his rights of appeal.

Varied penalties for jockeys at RAD Board

Racing Article

racing.com Staff@Racing

4:46pm
 
Judge Bowman had his work cut out for him during a busy session of appeals at the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary (RAD) Board on Wednesday morning, handing down varied penalties to jockeys Mitch Aitken, Craig Robertson and Trent Germaine.

Aitken and Robertson successfully appealed against the severity of separate fines they received for a breach of AR137(b), relating to their alleged failure to ride their mounts out in the final strides of a race.

Aitken had his original $750 fine for his ride on Extra Olives at Caulfield on 29 April reduced to $500 while Robertson, who was appealing a $500 fine for his ride on None Left at Swan Hill on 11 May, will now pay $300.

In both cases, representatives for the jockeys argued that the original fines imposed by stewards were more severe than those received by their peers for similar offences.

Germaine, 23, had one month shaved off a three-month suspension for failing to provide a urine sample at Warrnambool on 3 May, despite providing a clear sample at Racing Victoria fewer than 24 hours later.

Representatives for Germaine haven't ruled out taking their case to VCAT seeking a further reduction in penalty, arguing the apprentice lacked the intent to avoid the test and had not been reminded to provide a sample upon signing out of the track.

Racing.com report
Apprentice jockey Trent Germaine hasn't ruled out taking his fight against a lengthy suspension imposed by Racing Victoria stewards to VCAT, despite winning a small reprieve at the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board on Wednesday.

Germaine had one month shaved off the three-month suspension that was handed down to him for failing to provide a urine sample at the races on 3 May, the second day of Warrnambool's May Racing Carnival.

In Wednesday's appeal, stewards argued that the original three-month penalty for the breach of AR 81A was reflective of the serious nature of the charge and needed to act as a deterrent to other riders but Peter Jurkovsky, acting as representative for Germaine, disagreed and argued that the circumstances of the case did not warrant such a harsh penalty.

Germaine's suspension is only a month short of the four-month bans given to Tom Sadler (2015) and Sam Payne (2017) for returning urine samples that tested positive to a banned substance, while it's markedly greater than the six-week suspension given to Adam McCabe for a failed test earlier this year. 

Jurkovsky said that Germaine's relative inexperience - he was riding at his first Warrnambool Carnival - and his lack of intent to avoid the test should have been taken into account when stewards determined an appropriate penalty, suggesting a suspended sentence would have more fitting under the circumstances.

On the day in question, Germaine rode trackwork at Geelong for his employer Jamie Edwards before attending the Warrnambool meeting, where he was engaged to partner the Chris Calthorpe-trained Perceptionalist in a 1700m maiden.

As is standard practice, all apprentices are required to sign-in with stewards upon arrival at the track and in doing so, Germaine was advised of the obligation to submit to a breath test and provide a urine sample during the day.

While he completed the breath test, Jurkovsky claimed that Germaine simply forgot to submit to authorities for the urine test prior to his departure from the track and suggested that there is a need for stricter controls to be implemented by stewards to ensure jockeys - particularly inexperienced apprentices like Germaine - aren't allowed to sign out prior to providing a sample.

Stewards were made aware of Germaine's misdemeanour and called the 23-year-old jockey at approximately 4pm that afternoon, at which time he was driving between Geelong and Werribee.

Germaine offered to return to Warrnambool and provide the sample, however, acting under the provisions of the rule and following consultation with Victorian Jockeys' Association boss Matt Hyland - who was concerned about the safety risk posed by an additional five hours behind the wheel - stewards declined and stood the rider down from riding in trackwork and races, subject to him providing a clear urine sample.

The apprentice attended Racing Victoria on 4 May and provided a urine sample which subsequently tested negative for any prohibited substance, however, the decision was made to suspend his license to ride in races for three months.

Germaine, whose reduced two-month suspension expires on 3 July, has 28 days to lodge an appeal with VCAT.

]On the face of it you would think the learned RAD board could have given this young fella some credit  under the circumstances as outlined by his representative ......he was clear the next day and his offer to return to do the test on 3May shows he wasn't likely to have any prohibited substances in his system maybe he''ll have a better outcome at VCAT

https://www.racenet.com.au/news/135427/Williams-'aggrieved'-with-Caulfield-suspension

"Williams pleaded guilty to causing interference aboard the Ciaron Maher-trained Enigman but told stewards similar incidents have earned riders a severe reprimand in recent times.
The stewards, headed by acting chairman Corie Waller, disagreed, giving Williams a penalty that will keep him out of two city meetings.
"The same panel has adjudicated on a similar incident and nothing has been done," Williams told stewards.
"How can that be eight meetings?
"It does not constitute a degree of being worthy of a suspension."
Waller told Williams the stewards could not do any more for the jockey. The steward told the rider he could take his case to an appeal at the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board if he felt aggrieved.
"I feel aggrieved but I don't really have much chance in an appeal," Williams said.
"I'm really disappointed because it (the premiership battle) is great for racing."

Williams is in the Blue & Cerise J Childs on Nikitas is in the Red with Black striped sleeves

On the face of it the interference in the last 50m or so was very minor I agree with Craig he didn't deserve a suspension he should appeal and apply for a stay.

Jockey B. Stewart (UNLIKELY STORY) pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless riding under AR137(a) for directing his mount in across the heels of CHAMP ELECT near the 1000m, making heavy contact with CHAUFFEUR, which became severely unbalanced and then carried in further towards the running rail. Jockey Stewarts licence to ride in races was suspended for a period of one (1) calendar month to commence midnight 23 May 2018 and expire midnight 23 June 2018. In issuing the charge of reckless riding and determining penalty stewards were mindful that jockey Stewarts actions had caused both CHAUFFEUR and its rider to become severely unbalanced. Stewards were also mindful that jockey Stewart had been severely reprimanded for a similar manoeuvre in an earlier race.

That account of it understates the incident a bit.

My reading of the replay is that Stewart had it in his mind to knock Chauffeur out of the race and has succeeded. Talking about the first 600m of the race here and the horses running last and second last. What the phlock is he doing???

Jordan Childs suspended for alcohol breach

Group One-winning jockey Jordan Childs will spend a month on the sidelines after failing a breathalyser test at the Bendigo races.

All jockeys riding at the meeting on Sunday were tested with Childs stood down when his reading was above the allowable .02.

A second test confirmed the high reading and Childs, who won the Blue Diamond Stakes on Written By in February, was later suspended for one month.

The 22-year-old took full responsibility and posted an apology on Twitter.

"Today at Bendigo I returned an alcohol above the illegal limit," Childs said..

"I have been suspended for 1 month. It was a clear mistake on my behalf. No excuses. No appeal. Safety is paramount. It's up to me to work hard and earn back respect."

Jockey Glyn Schofield - Change Of Suspension Dates
   
After being issued with a careless riding suspension at Hawkesbury on Thursday 8 November 2018, jockey Glyn Schofield subsequently contacted Stewards to advise that during the period of suspension he will be unable to ride in the Group 1 Railway Stakes to be run in Perth on Saturday 24 November 2018. As no mitigation had previously been given to Jockey Schofield for feature meetings included in the penalty, Stewards reduced the 8 meeting penalty by 15% and ruled that his license to ride in races was suspended for a period to commence on Sunday 18 November 2018 and to expire on Saturday 1 December 2018, on which day he may ride (7 Meetings).

Licensed Jockey Glyn Schofield Lodges An Appeal
   
Licensed jockey Glyn Schofield has lodged an appeal against conviction and penalty after being found guilty by Racing NSW Stewards under AR137(a) after his ride on New Tipperary in Race 7 (Lander Toyota Ladies Day Cup 1400m (Listed)) at Clarendon Racecourse Hawkesbury on Thursday 8 November 2018.
Following a Stewards inquiry on this date, Mr Schofield was suspended for a period commencing Sunday 18 November 2018 and to expire on Saturday 1 December 2018 on which day he may ride.
This appeal is set to be heard on Thursday 15th  November 2018, commencing at 9.30am at the offices of Racing NSW.

Very considerate of the stewards to give him a 15% discount but putting the 2 releases together there's no difference in the penalty imposed unless the date of the Perth race is incorrect........what's the point in suspending him from 18th November when the charge was on his ride 10 days before :what:

I read that as the 15% mitigation because the suspension includes the Railway (24th November)

Yes you're right....but the suspension dates are the same 18th Nov to 1st Dec but originally out for 8 meetings now with the discount he's out for only 7.
Stewards advised that the system allows an option to take 9 days grace before the suspension starts...... Schofield elected to take advantage of that option to start his suspension on 18th Nov .

Licensed Jockey Mathew Cahill Suspended For Six Weeks
   
Racing NSW Stewards have continued an inquiry commenced on Friday, 30th November 2018 into the tactics adopted on Balansa in the TAB Federal Open Handicap (1300m).
On Friday, 30th November 2018 evidence was taken from licensed jockey Mathew Cahill and licensed co-trainer Keith Dryden.

The Stewards yesterday took further evidence from jockey Mathew Cahill and co-trainer Mr Dryden and considered a written report from Mitchell Reid (Analyst, Betting and Compliance – Racing NSW) with respect to wagering on the event.

Having considered all the tendered evidence with respect to wagering on the event, the Stewards did not identify any integrity issues and noted that all accounts identified as having wagered significant amounts on this event, had operated within their typical wagering parameters.

Licensed jockey Mathew Cahill was found guilty of the following charge under AR135(b);
AR135(b) The 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

The details of the charge being that licensed jockey Mathew Cahill, rider of 4th placed Balansa in Race 7, the TAB Federal Open Handicap (1300m) at the Canberra Racing Club race meeting conducted at Thoroughbred Park on Friday, 30th November 2018, failed to take all reasonable and permissible measures on that gelding throughout the said race to ensure that Balansa was given full opportunity to win or obtain the best possible place in the field in that by reason of all or part of the following particulars;

1) That approaching the 600m, when positioned approximately four lengths behind Mercurial Lad and three lengths behind Levee Bank, he failed to ride with sufficient vigour and purpose to attempt to improve his position when it when it was reasonable and permissible for him to do so.

2) That leaving the 600m, he continued to fail to ride his mount with sufficient vigour and purpose to improve his position and remained racing one off the rail, when it was reasonable and permissible for him to shift out and place his mount under pressure to follow Levee Bank which commenced to improve three-wide. Such failure resulting in Ons Vier then shifting in behind Levee Bank and then preventing him from improving his position for some distance thereafter.

3) That between the 500m and 400m, he failed to ride with sufficient vigour and purpose to shift out and attempt to improve into a run to the outside of Mercurial Lad and to the inside of Seeblume when it was reasonable and permissible for him to have placed his mount under pressure and improve between those runners at all relevant stages.

4) That after obtaining clearing running between Ons Vier and Seeblume near the 250m, between the 250m and 50m he failed to ride with sufficient vigour and purpose when it was reasonable and permissible for him to do so.

Mathew Cahill’s license to ride in races was suspended for a period of 6 weeks to commence on Monday 7th January 2019 and to expire on Monday 18th February 2018 on which day he may ride.

Mathew Cahill was advised of his appeal rights.

Relevant Rule
AR135(b) The 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.

(d) Any person who in the opinion of the Stewards has breached, or was a party to breaching, any portion of this rule may be penalised, and the horse concerned may be disqualified.
