Racing: Fallon in dark over dismissal

KIEREN FALLON has broken his silence over his sacking last week as stable jockey to the powerful Henry Cecil yard. The split followed allegations that the trainer's second wife, Natalie, had had a relationship with a "top jockey".

A statement issued by Fallon's solicitor, said: "Fallon has not been informed by Cecil he has been dismissed, nor given any reason for his dismissal. He is unaware of any reason for his dismissal. Fallon has done his job to the best of his ability throughout the period of his retainer and as a consequence, the stable has been extremely successful. Fallon understands Mrs Cecil has recently been quoted to the effect she has had a relationship with a jockey. Fallon would like to make it clear he is not the jockey involved."
