Brodie Kirby on Mosstiara at Pinjarra. You won't see a better slaughter for a while. Low percentage nonsense 👎

The hot case at Orange was finalised today with HIROKIN's rider apprentice Jake Pracey-Holmes given one month for failing to give the horse every chance a well deserved decision IMO but strange that the run of the second horse escaped the stipes attention.

The paradox here is that in another two strides he goes from being a dunce to a genius   :lol:

He was outridden by a young girl who is a natural lightweight and who can judge pace.

If the horse had have won it would go down as one of the worst winning rides in history. It was atrocious.

Great to find myself in agreement with you Authorized. Jockey should stick to what he does best. Earning dubious commissions for flogging off good horses to Asia from their unsuspecting Australian owners. One way trip back to South Africa for him would be a fair reward for this ....

I see an enquiry has been commenced into this bod's riding in this race. Probably go no where considering the stable involved.

Inept isn't a word I'd use. That implies incompetence or no skill.

Then again maybe inept is right, inept in hiding his intentions. It looked terrible.

Glad after looking at the fields last night I stayed out today.

If he follows Nahema into the race 3 and 4 deep around the home turn he wins it. For some reason he seems to want to stay inside and ride for luck which doesn't eventuate.

Nothing untoward IMO. Just poor decision making.

Poor old Glyn. Just a really unlucky jockey. I bet he's still having nightmares about his ride on Brigantin in the dodgy Junoob Metropolitan a few years ago. Why wouldn't the horse run through the inside rail?

Toowoomba race 1. Laughable from the two girls on the favourites. Put them both out for 2 months.

Looks like Mr Greg Ryan has got away with dropping his hands in the last at Bathurst on ANZAC Day. Well done mate!

Stewards must be blind or gutless as it was so clear. A pitiful entry in the Stewards report and jockey explanation accepted as usual.

Ryan Plumb today on Capital Gain never in it until the last 100 or so when extricated from the ruck into the open giving an impossible start to be beaten a half length race 7........if the connections stick with him they deserve all they get.

Racing Victoria (RV) Stewards will conduct an inquiry at RV at 1pm this Thursday, 28 April 2016 into the tactics adopted on Bolshoi Bandit in the Moama Bowling Club Handicap (1412m) at Echuca on Sunday, 10 April, 2016 in which the horse finished last as the $4.40 second favourite.

Kym Hann, the licensed trainer of Bolshoi Bandit, and jockey Craig Robertson, were first notified by Stewards on Wednesday, 13 April 2016 that they were investigating the tactics adopted and analysing wagering on the race. They have been asked to attend Thursday’s inquiry.

Dropped charges against jockey Craig Robertson raises alarm bells
Matt Stewart, Herald Sun

SOMETHING stinks in the decision of stewards to drop serious non-trying charges against veteran jockey Craig Robertson.
Even a half-blind punter only half-watching Robertson’s ride on Bolshoi Bandit at Echuca in April would have demanded inquiry, explanation and — if he was found guilty — penalty.
Bolshoi Bandit was a $4.40 chance. Robertson sat last, five wide on a horse who prefers the rail, and sat up in the straight, finishing last.
 
The stewards on the day reported the horse hung in and wasn’t tested. A few lines, book closed.
Race-day stewards are supposed to be backed up by a fancy control room back at Epsom Road; you miss something in the bustle of race-day and we’ll pick it up.
But the control room didn’t see anything untoward either.
Subsequently, however, the Epsom Road integrity chiefs did decide they were interested in Robertson’s ride.
Racing Victoria chief steward Terry Bailey said he had “grave concerns’’ over Robertson’s ride and hauled him in, charging him with both giving it a run (AR 135a) and the slightly lesser not giving it every possible chance (135b).
Jockeys rarely face more serious charges.
Yet on Tuesday stewards advised Robbo the charges were dropped and implored him to say nothing to the media about it.
 Racing Victoria chief steward Terry Bailey said he had ‘grave concerns’ over Craig Robertson’s ride on Bolshoi Bandit. Pictu Ellen Smith
Stewards said that after further investigation — by talking to the stipe in charge at Echuca and RV lawyers — they decided not to proceed.
Cue multiple alarm bells.
Do we conclude that Robertson’s explanation, that Bolshoi Bandit was an erratic rogue that may have put him over the running rail, was accepted?
The funny thing is, this “mongrel rogue’’ has never been issued a ban or even a warning. He has raced three times since Echuca, for a second, a fifth and a win at Corowa.
Robertson told stewards he had concerns over the horse’s action, but expressed no such concern to the trainer.
Robertson may not have pulled Bolshoi Bandit. But stewards cannot simply look away at rides like that because the punting public won’t simply shrug and keep betting.
At the very least this case demanded a proper hearing where the arguments could have been tested.
You wonder what message this sends to the industry.
Think of the precedent, the next jockey who rides a raging howler. “Sorry stipe, mongrel horse laid in, just like Robbo’s. Are we done?’’
 Stewards on Tuesday dropped charges against jockey Craig Robertson.
It’s not only the boys at Epsom Road who are in the gun. We should also be asking questions about the Echuca stipes who were oblivious to the neon lit ride in the fifth race at Echuca that day.
The appeals board would have confronted the issue of competence, how two sets of stewards saw two different things.
At the very least the Echuca stipes should have put an asterisk on the ride and referred it to Epsom Road, to a less busy date to be fixed.
In a detailed report, ex-British Horse Racing boss Paul Bittar has recommended a complete overhaul of integrity services, including greater separation of race-day duties from handling of serious charges.
That report has more gravitas than it did a week ago.

Updating the decision to present a nolle ...one that he got away with.

Extract from Sal Perna's Annual Report:-

"One referral from RVL regarding advice of the withdrawal of charges against a jockey in respect of riding tactics in a race."


Further and better particulars would be welcome on the following extract......at a guess it could be the Bolshoi Bandit ride by Craig Robertson...a case that created much conjecture at the time with no satisfactory explanation ever offered.......seeing this occurred late in the reporting year it's possible Sal hasn't finalised it...should  give him the benefit of the doubt on this one.

Watch the ride on a horse called Bungle Boori at the Sunshine Coast Today. I know that stewards have opened a running and handling enquiry into aspects of the ride. Would be a straight twelve months in past days. Maybe even more. Hope they get the trainers involved as well . I can't believe the powers that be even allowed them to have a licence in Queensland in the first place.
