Racing: Amateur rider banned for failing to ride out
Thursday 06 May 2004
The amateur rider Michael Miller has been banned for four days for dropping his hands on Winners Enclosure in a novices' hunter chase at Chepstow yesterday. Winners Enclosure finished a distant last of five finishers to Camden Carrig.
The Chepstow stewards also considered the case of Christian Williams for his riding at the Welsh track on 14 April when finishing third on Something Small in the concluding bumper. The 3lb conditional rider had left the weighing room before the stewards had a chance to interview him. They found him guilty of careless riding and banned him for one day.
Delfos and Olivier Peslier won the Group Three Prix La Force at Saint-Cloud yesterday. The Green Tune colt had two and a half lengths to spare over Young Tiger, with the odds-on favourite, Kurm, back in third. His trainer, Carlos Laffon-Parias, will aim the colt at the Prix du Jockey-Club.
