Racing NSW stewards opened an inquiry into the shocker Schofield put in on one of Waller's runners which was a certainty beaten ...it'll be a big surprise if he talks his way out of this one.

Still no result in the adjourned inquiry into Schofield's pathetic ride on 17th April a terse reply presumably from an admin assistant employed by RacingNSW informed me it has yet to be resumed....maybe the steward in charge is on hols or they've lost their notebooks...still very unsatisfactory leaving this in abeyance for this long without a reasonable explanation.

You can bet London to a Brick ON as Ken Howard used to call ........in a tight finish....... Schofield will drag out the 'Not Blameworthy" excuse from the jockey precedents book ....... and claim it was just an error of judgment.......if they buy that I'll give up. :shutup:

A detailed reasons for decision today by NSW stewards panel P Dingwall in the chair the panel concluded that Schofield's ride on Up N' Rolling was not blameworthy ..... :o

Given the benefit of the doubt this time but is on their radar.

I bet Bobby El -Issa would love to be in his shoes.

http://www.racingnsw.com.au/article-display/Stewards-Conclude-Inquiry-Into-Ride-On-Up-N-Rolling-Jockey-Glyn-Schofield/22905

"Ultimately it was left for the stewards to adjudicate upon the explanation of G Schofield regarding the tactics he adopted from the 600m and determine if his explanation was reasonable in the circumstances. The Stewards were mindful that the interpretation an application of the relevant rule, AR 135(b) does not seek to punish a mere error of judgment unless it is an unreasonable one.

The stewards determined that G Schofield’s decision, with the benefit of hindsight, to attempt to improve between Red Knot & Distroyia and not to shift out to trail Nahema near the 500m could be considered a lower percentage course of action. However, having regard to his explanation, namely that the horses placed close to the rail in previous races had a distinct advantage, the decision to pursue runs close to the running rail was not in the opinion of the Stewards unreasonable, and therefore the choice to follow Distroyia at the relevant stage could not be considered blameworthy in the circumstances.

In arriving at this decision, the stewards were cognisant that the previous 5 winners on the day had raced along the running rail until at least the 350M or further.
G Schofield however was advised that there have been several rides of his in New South Wales, which have come under notice and he was reminded of his requirement, to ensure public confidence, that he rides his mounts in such a manner that is not subject to query. :chin:

Mr Waller stated that the instructions to Glyn Schofield were to be positioned midfield with cover. He said that although he was disappointed that Up ‘N’ Rolling did not win the event, he could not be critical of the ride after having the benefit of viewing the official footage, and expressed general satisfaction with G Schofields tactics.

I'm still not convinced but I must say the different angles of the patrol film certainly favour Schofield over the normal race footage.

Which begs the question, why was this footage such a secret  :chin:

I believe justice has been done.

Except for the fact that some continue to believe that all jockeys are crooks when they back a loser.

Gee old Authorized is getting a little testy this evening. JWS all jockeys aren't crooks but some are. Do you remember that slow Waller horse that found another leg when sent  to Hong Kong ? Any clues who was involved in that nonsense ?

Don't agree with the term "blameworthy" (or more appropriately, "not blameworthy".

He (Schofield) made the decision to stick to the inside, not Pope Pious the Sixth. How can he be "not blameworthy"?

A very poor ride.

But was it "not criminal worthy"? Absolutely.

My recollection of the "not blameworthy" escape clause is that it came into being in a running and handling inquiry some years back when the "accused" was represented by renowned QC of the day the late Tom Hughes... and he got off on the basis it was an honest mistake ...an error of judgment ....the old excuse  resurfaced a year or so ago when former Qld Racing Appeals board chair the late Bill Carter QC was prevailed  upon  to exonerate Damian Browne who had been charged with failing to take all permissible measures etc blah blah .........Browne had the good sense to engage a mouthpiece who knew the ropes ......the stewards lost and Browne got off........at or about the same time Bobby El-Issa  was in a similar pickle .....he decided to represent hisself and was most likely unaware of the "not blameworthy" ....with the result he went down for the count......it's not necessarily who you know but what you know.

Steve Brassel at Racenet:

GREAT JOB BY STEWARDS DESERVES ACKNOWLEDGMENT

Stewards are like umpires and referees, nobody cheers for them however they hold tremendous influence over the game.

There's rarely any accolades for doing a tough job but I have to hand it to Racing NSW Chief Steward Marc Van Gestel for his management of the Glyn Scholfield/Up 'N' Rolling enquiry which concluded during the week.

I'm putting my hand up as one of the many who were filthy on Up 'N' Rolling failing to get there in time when a certainty beaten at Canterbury and Schofield was squarely in my crosshairs.

However, after Van Gestel and his panel determined the hoop 'not blameworthy' I've got to shift into reverse and send Schofield my apologies. As Arthur 'Fonzy' Fonzarelli would say I got it wwwrrrong .

On the day it certainly appeared Schofield had made a terrible error in judgement by not following Nahema who took off at the 600m going wide, but stewards released vision during the week which showed there was in fact a run between horses in front of Schofield. It was compelling viewing.

Unfortunately for Schofield the run disappeared just when he was about to push the accelerator and all it did was get ugly from there, including the whip getting caught up in the charge to the post.

Due to the profile of the enquiry Van Gestel broke new ground during the week releasing the footage with his voiceover explaining why stewards had made their determination and there was no case for Schofield to answer.

Stewards looked into betting activity on the race and found nothing untoward and along with the release of the vision gave a fantastic insight into what the stewards had to work with looking into what appeared a shocking ride but one which in the end turned out to involve a fair bit of bad luck.

Lets hope we get to see more of this when there's a contentious issue in the future.
