Darley Calls Time Out On Zahra Relationship

Wednesday, 8th August 2012

Prominent Melbourne jockey Mark Zahra who is "under investigation for [alleged] race fixing" has had his relationship with the powerful Darley Australia stable temporarily suspended. According to theage.com.au, "Darley Australia's managing director, Henry Plumptre, said yesterday that Zahra would not ride a Darley runner until the police probe into his handling of a horse at Cranbourne last year was completed". Plumptre noted: "I think we'd leave it until the investigation [into Zahra's ride on Baikal at Cranbourne in April 2011] is finished. This industry stands or falls through the integrity of our sport, and if there is an issue all I can say is that we'd be extremely disappointed.''
