Racing: Reilly lodges appeal to overturn suspension
Tuesday 09 January 2007
Brian Reilly has lodged an appeal against the 18 month disqualification imposed by the Horseracing Regulatory Authority in its corruption investigation. Fellow rider Dean Williams has decided not to contest the same ban, which starts today.
The jockeys were warned off for their involvement with the bookmaker Owen Churchill. He was disqualified for eight years for instigating a corrupt scheme which netted £56,000 from laying 10 horses.
* Jamie Spencer received a 10-day ban yesterday for his riding of Mickmacmagoole at Southwell over a year ago. Although in breach of the rule which covers failure to take all reasonable measures to obtain the best possible placing, he was found not guilty of breaking the more serious "non-triers" rule, which covers intent to not ride the horse on its merits.
