Daly's ban sparked sharp words between racing professionals and local stewards. One of the trainers whose horse was involved in the incident, Mick Channon, said: "What's happening to racing? We'll have no jockeys left shortly. It seems to be the stewards that are bringing the game into disrepute."
The trainer of Daily Risk, Simon Dow, said: "It seems a harsh decision as the boy was on a horse who hangs to his right in any case and would prefer softer ground."
But the stewards' secretary, Jeremy Ker, said: "One doesn't flip a coin as to what the category of interference is. It's on a sliding scale from reckless, intentional, irresponsible and careless to accidental and the Jockey Club take the first three very seriously."Reuse content
