Yes mate, they can be warned off or fined if they own one.

C Lever was outstanding Today at Kembla . Probably at his best . Watch the ride on the Waller hotpot in Race 2. A gem. Then have a squizz at him in the last . Outstanding. Why doesn't this fellow get more opportunities in NSW after he found the going a bit tough in South Australia.

No complaints re his ride on the 2nd race.  Bigger concern was why that thing was odds on  :lol:

The last race, he certainly seemed to have mistimed his run. In saying that it certainly is the horses racing pattern

If you are on allegedly the best horse in the race in a small field you don't put yourself in that position . Great riders don't : just those who make up the numbers. Never saw Higgins caught on the fence in the straight at Flemington (one of our longest straights ) Simply because he knew you had to be off the fence at the 700 metre  mark. The dummys don't get it. Then again it was a Waller favourite so who would know. As for the ride in the last it reminded me of some old time trotting drivers who seemed to have trouble counting the
laps at Harold Park for one reason or another. On a more positive note the best ride I saw Today, after looking at the videos was Kathy O"Hara on Lord Zoulander. Positive early , assessed situation and I reckon she is riding as well as she ever has.

She's also based herself in the 'southern region' whilst she has spent most of her career riding in town. She should be running rings around most of them!

I wouldn't belittle her achievements in the Southern Region- there are plenty of good hoops who are based in that region and others at present. . Many in these regions are every bit  as good as some of those who are based in the City. Reith , Penza, Ryan , Thompson, O'Hara, Hutchings, Latham ,Costin,  etc don't have anything to learn from those based in the City.

Emerald Jockey Club Inc
Emerald Provincial | TAB
Sat 11 Apr Good 3

Race 7: Maraboon Tavern Class 6 Plate – 1200m
 
ARRESTAR – Overraced in the early and middle stages.
 
ENEMY OF MAN – Slow to begin.
 
SHOW ‘EM  - Rider reported her mount did not handle the going today.
 
HACKSAW RIDGE – Stewards opened an inquiry into jockey Watkins’s riding, particularly over the final 800m. After taking evidence from jockey Watkins and Trainer T. Austin, the matter was adjourned to allow stewards to view the previous starts and also examine betting records of the race. A post race veterinary examination failed to reveal any significant abnormalities.

His ride on the short priced favourite in the previous race wasn't too flash either although in fairness he might have realized he was in the glue and trying to get out of it. Drew barrier 1.

4 months.

If he'd have jagged him back a couple more lengths he would have been out of camera range and might have got away with it.   :lol:

Anyone wonder why a senior jockey gets 4 months in a country meeting while an apprentice gets 3 months for Vega One in a feature race in the city? Other than being an apprentice, does the stature of the race have any impact on sentencing?

Well, it’s started early.
J Mac will be hard to beat as the worst today given the slaughter job on Shamusu Sho


Goes around tomorrow.
Looks like a bizarre decision with the 64kg and dropping back to 1200m

I’ve got 2 other black book runners in the race so I hope sanity prevails and they scratch  him

Dear J Mac,
                   Just a little apology re your ride on Shamusu Sho  in the Highway.
                  We can see now that there was no slaughter job, rather we were wrong in our assessment of the horse's ability.
                  We'll try to learn from our mistakes next time.
       
                  All the best in your quest for the jockey's premiership.

                                                                                                       Regards from the forum.   :lol:     :lol:  

                How on earth did Shamusu Sho go around at $3.5 fav with 62kgs dropping back 400 metres.........crazy!

Wily, what did you see in Shamusu Sho that convinced you he was a city class horse?

$4.2 fav in the Highway is crazy too?

$4.20 was a crazy price from the draw.

From memory I got $10 on the Wednesday before the race

What do jockeys do between races?

Do they not observe the pattern of racing?

All day at Hawkesbury horses were coming down the outside fence.

Yet in the last race there were still jockeys sticking to the fence.

Koby Jennings on Gai's horse. Has run dead last on the rails. 0/10 ride.

Between races.....

Have heard lots of things over the years.....

female sisters fight over the same bloke

Ask for their 10g to be delivered in a sandwich bag by a friendly trainer who thinks it is a sandwich

ring Fletcher

ring their bookie or Betfair

fly to another venue

leave the course when they dont want their weight checked.....

leave the course when they dont want to answer certain questions from the stewards

Punch out a trainer

and the list goes on....

you could write a book

Fours

Not the jockey's fault but was on Chief Archer in the 5th at Belmont each way at $51 - my God what a dead stiff certainty for a place  :sad:

No mate, bad draw again but the jock settled him back at the tail & saved him for one big run.

Unlike JMac, who should have done that but chose to stride forward and sit mid field 27 wide, out in no mans land. Condemning the horse to failure 😆
