Pike to Answer Stewards on Lord Tom Ride

5 July
www.westozracing.com

William Pike will front the RWWA stewards on Friday, after they adjourned an inquiry into his ride on favourite Lord Tom in the last race at Belmont yesterday.

Below is the extract from the stewards report:

An Inquiry was held into the reason for DJEDDAH STING (D. Staeck) being checked approaching the 200m. Evidence was taken from Jockeys D. Staeck, Jason Brown (ON THE RECORD), B. Parnham (OUR NAMATJIRA), W. Pike (LORD TOM), T. Turner (OROYA GOLD) and Apprentice J. Hill (ALPINE LAD) and her host trainer Mr A. Mathews.

Jockey W. Pike pleaded not guilty to a charge of careless riding under ARR.137(a) in that approaching the 200m he allowed his mount to shift inwards and crowd OUR NAMATJIRA inwards onto DJEDDAH STING with this being the major contributing factor to DJEDDAH STING being tightened for room and checking.

This Inquiry was adjourned to allow Jockey W. Pike to further question Jockey D. Staeck until Friday, 6 July 2007 at the offices of Perth Racing at a time to be fixed.

WA jockey off to early Hong Kong start
Brad Waters
Monday, 15 June 2009


Young Perth rider William Pike will arrive in Hong Kong on Monday to begin his riding stint earlier than planned to help overcome a jockey shortage.

Pike was offered a six-month contract which was scheduled to begin in the new Hong Kong season in August but headed to Hong Kong on Sunday night.

The leading Perth rider left W A punters with a parting gift after riding a treble at Belmont on Saturday.

Pike will begin riding trackwork on Tuesday morning and will have his first race rides on Sunday.

Big fish. Small pond. Would be interesting to see him take on the big boys in the east full time.

Pike is a gun. He has a good style too, still moves his feet which is few and far between these days.

Oh well, Pikey  up to his usual tricks today.
It seems he's intent in parking every one of the Peter's horse back at the tail on the fence. Especially if they are short.
Sets an impossible task for them time and time again

Universal law the latest in a string of them.

He keeps this up and I will have to get a betfair account  :lol:

Peters certainly does not want is horses ridden on the pace,

I actually heard him criticize a winning ride of Pike when he led one day,

Considering he rides more winners than anyone over there it can't be as bad as you expect.

Thanks Sobig

I do find that rather strange given the nature of the Belmont & Ascot tracks but they are his horses  :lol:
