Will jockey managers be allowed to bet or not?
From March 2019:
Any rider’s agent who bets, has an interest in a bet, or facilitates a bet; or provides any tip, or any other information or advice that may influence any person to bet, on any NSW race in which a rider whom the rider’s agent represents (in accordance with AR1) is engaged to ride, commits an offence and may be penalised.
The new rule does allow a jockey manager to be exempt from the rule provided they “seek written approval from Racing NSW”. To be exempt from the provisions LR71A, such application must be made in writing to Racing NSW prior to the commencement date, and unless written approval is obtained from Racing NSW then the provisions of the rule are effective 1 March 2019.
While paraphrased, depending on the criteria to be exempted, the proposal is not clear anout 'banning' or 'permitting'
More generally it may help to have more background on the issues that give rise to the proposed ban (or permission).
The preference of punters may be for the managers to be provided they only bet 'early' and all bets are 'published'.
.........as the Banjo said ......... see where the money goes on!
