Fallon Makes 1st Appearance At Old Bailey
In London overnight, 6-time champion UK jockey Kieren Fallon & his 5 co-defendants accused of race-fixing "made their 1st appearance at the Old Bailey before Mr Justice Forbes, when a jury panel was selected from 100 members of the public," reported racingpost.co.uk. The jury "will be sworn in next Tuesday, when the prosecution will open its case, which alleges the 6 defendants conspired to defraud Betfair customers & others by agreeing not to permit various horses to run on their merits, then laying those horses to lose". The trial is expected to last for 4 months.
