HRA set to charge jockey

A leading jockey has been notified by the Horseracing Regulatory Authority (HRA) that he is to be charged in connection with an investigation into alleged race-fixing, according to the Racing Post.

The well-known rider is a top Flat jockey and the report claims the HRA's investigation also involves a further three Flat jockeys and a former racecourse bookmaker.

But it is believed the investigation does not relate to the City Of London probe which has seen charges brought against 11 people, including six-times champion Kieren Fallon and weighing room colleagues Fergal Lynch and Darren Williams.
