Tim Clark has been suspended for five meetings on a careless riding charge at Randwick on Saturday.

Clark pleaded guilty to the charge from the Dulcify Quality after allowing his mount Well Handled to shift in near the 1400m and cause interference to the eventual winner Viking Legend.

Clark will start his suspension after next Saturday’s Epsom Handicap meeting at Randwick and he can return to the saddle on October 12.

Took a leaf out of Nikolics book (Hot Danish) and missed the start on first starter Hot Snap  :mad: :mad: :mad:

Not a good few days for horses carrying Green, red sleeves

Those who are quick to dis Timmy Clark had better make their words a bit softer - easier to swallow that way.

Easy to chuck mud at someone trying to break back into the local scene, but I reckon Clark is doing as good as any.
For starters - how are you going to wrest the "good" rides off the top stable riders? In my book he's got to prove himself all over again.

This is what Anthony Allen found in Brisbane after out-riding his allowance, and taking a stint with a Sydney trainer for awhile.
He's back riding well, getting the rides and getting them home. But it was a wilderness experience there for awhile.

It'll be the same for Clark. It takes time to win the confidence of trainers (and owners) who have short memories.

Take his record today -

Warwick farm:
R1 Please Dance ... unpl @ $126 fixed
R2 Sea Sovereign ... unpl @ $71 fixed
R4: Geni Moochi ... unpl @ $17 fixed
R5: Miss Venus ... first @ $14 fixed
R6: Robard ... unpl @ $101 fixed
R7: Exceleine ... first @ $14 fixed

Where are the 'good rides' there  :what:

I'll be following Tim Clark. Yes - he's hardly set the world on fire since returning - 1 winner every 10 rides.
But that is set to improve when he gets the mounts.

This Saturday at Rosehill he has a full book:

R1: Pirandello trained by Darren Smith $4.40/$3.10
R2: Alpine Gold trained by Rick Worthington $34/$9
R3: Devil Miss trained by David Payne $26/$6.50
R4: Fine Bubbles trained by Kris Lees $10/$4.33
R5:Tahitian Black trained by David Pfieffer $7.50/$2.10
R6: Vaquera trained by Gai Waterhouse $17/$4.33
R7: Frozen Rope trained by Adam Duggan $26/$7.50
R8: Smart Moochi trained by Jason Coyle $13/$3.75

Hardly a book of fav's ... but some astute trainers have given him a rough show ... and
I reckon he will be responsible for an upset or two if these early bird odds prevail.

I still wouldn't call this lot "getting the mounts" ... but it's a start now for Clark, and a chance to justify some confidences.

Nice winner there ... If T Clark gets the rides ... he wins.

He's not been offered too many good'uns lately ...

Later he's on:

SR5: 8 NORTHERN GLORY (4) $6.50 First up since early January
SR6: 3 FAMOUS SEAMUS (1) $9.50 Not out of here either

Both in the market a tad

Treble and 3 placings last Saturday.

Treble two days before at Gosford.

Could win on a broomstick at the moment.

Rides the first winner today at $12.

Has a good book of rides at Scone over the two days of the carnival.
