Jockey Kerrin McEvoy Appeal Upheld

Tuesday, 4th May 2010

The NSW Appeal Panel upheld Darley head stable jockey Kerrin McEvoy's appeal against a controversial 1-month suspension following his ride on Shakes at Royal Randwick in Sydney on March 18. Racing NSW stewards had found McEvoy guilty of "failing to take all reasonable & permissible measures throughout that race to give Shakes full opportunity to win or obtain the best possible place in the field". The Appeal Panel found that "although McEvoy's ride was, in the Panel's view, an error of judgement, it was an error that was not of a culpable level which warranted a breach of the Rules".
