NSW Jockey Jamie Quinnell Disqualified 2-Months
Racing NSW stewards yesterday disqualified jockey Jamie Quinnell for 2-months, in the aftermath of last month’s disqualification of jockey Wayne Wheatley for 12-months (after Wheatley failed to provide a sample as directed at the Casino meeting on August 14). Quinnell pleaded guilty to “retrieving Wheatley’s gear bag from the Casino Racing Club's jockey room & bringing the gear to Wheatley outside the racecourse entrance gates” & also to “making false statements in a telephone interview with Racing NSW Racecourse Detective Bob Nicholson when evidence was being prepared for the Wayne Wheatley enquiry”.
