To add to his woes he was fined a further $200 for posting material on a social media site, which in the stewards' opinion was obscene or defamatory towards the Racing Queensland Training Department

They must be kidding. How could you possibly defame anything in relation to Queensland Racing ? They are a complete laughing stock to people throughout the nation. Suggest the kid lawyers up and gets this nonsense overturned.

Ben Allen cops 22-meeting whip ban
 
Andrew Eddy@fastisheddy

Ben Allen has been hit with a 22-meeting suspension for excessive whip use in what stewards at Warrnambool termed a 'line-in-the-sand' moment for the young rider.

The suspension was Allen's 10th whip offence this season and acting chief steward Rob Montgomery said that other sanctions such as fines and short suspensions were not working as a deterrent.


Allen, who was shocked at the suspension, will begin his period on the sidelines from Saturday week.

Montgomery said Allen seemed to be the only rider struggling with the whip rules and that a long suspension might be the answer to curb his excessive use.

Allen was sanctioned after he gained a narrow photo-finish win aboard Akamon where he struck the horse four times more than permitted before the 100-metre mark.

Also joining Allen on the sidelines following the final day of the May Racing Carnival are Jordan Childs, who was suspended for eight meetings on a careless riding charge for causing interference in the straight on Whosyourhousemate while Harry Coffey was given a seven-meeting sanction for causing interference aboard Little Hot Missile at the 800-metre mark of the second race.

ENDS
He was shocked maybe he thought he would have been given more time. :o

Jackson Morris a battling jockey who usually rides at the Gold Coast turned up at Randwick yesty for two rides Conquest in R2 and Commander in R7 which won Conquest finished last unfortunately he incurred suspensions for careless riding to be served cumulatively the interference on Commander was approaching the winning post and was ever so slight and made no difference to the result...you see the same thing frequently with no action being taken ..... but according to the stewards it deserved time out.......a very tough decision IMO.

Toryjoy J. Morris (Commander) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under AR131(a) in that, approaching the winning post, he permitted his mount to shift in when insufficiently clear of Toryjoy, which had to be checked and lost its rightful running. J. Morris's licence to ride in races was suspended for a period to commence on Wednesday 10 July 2019 and to expire on Thursday 18 July 2019, on which day he may ride. Stewards ruled that the period of suspension is to be served cumulatively with the penalty imposed in Race 2

Arsenal, Morris has actually been based back in Sydney for quite a while. He has ridden a few winners in the last few weeks  including one for former successful jockey and trainer Kevin Moses. You are right the interference was minimal but Morris is despised by many stewards particularly in Queensland . I was told that by one of the oldest trotting and racing stewards in Queensland who at his advanced years is still on the payroll : God knows why- he has always been useless. Funny how sacked Queensland steward W Birch was on the officiating panel yesterday. Some things do add up.
