Osborne victory a setback for Sanders
Friday 28 September 2007
Seb Sanders had his total in the jockeys' title race reduced by one, to 145, after Jamie Osborne proved successful in his appeal against the demotion of Six Of Diamonds to second place at Bath this month. As Jamie Spencer scored in the opening race at Pontefract yesterday, Sanders trails the former champion by one.
Ridden by William Buick, Six Of Diamonds finished a short-head in front of the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Gold Hush and Sanders, but the result was amended in the stewards' room and Buick was given a one-day ban for careless riding.
In a separate hearing, Buick was hit with a 12-day ban – two days deferred for three months – after being referred to the disciplinary panel for careless riding on Qadar at Doncaster. The referral was triggered as he had been banned for a total of 24 days for interference within 12 months. He will also spend a day at the British Racing School for remedial training.
