Race 7 JAP MOTOR & CARBY CENTRE CLASS 1 H’CAP – 950M
Stewards today inquired into the reason GOLDEN CHARLES (C. Whiteley) had to be severely checked and lose its rightful running near the 550m. After hearing evidence and viewing the official race film jockey N. Yadi (FLAMIN’ SID) pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under AR131(a) in that he failed to make sufficient effort to prevent his mount from shifting in when not sufficiently clear of GOLDEN CHARLES, causing that runner to be severely checked and lose its rightful running.
N. Yadi’s licence to ride in races was suspended for a period of 11 days to commence midnight 15 February 2020 and to expire midnight 26 February 2020. Stewards deemed this incident to be mid- range and in considering penalty took into account jockey N. Yadi’s guilty plea and recent good record in relation to this rule. N. Yadi, was advised of his right of review against this decision.
