Rawiller Set To Miss Pierro Guineas Ride

Thursday, 7th March 2013

Last season's undefeated champion colt Pierro could be without regular race rider Nash Rawiller after the jockey was suspended for 5 meetings at yesterday's Newcastle meeting, reports news.com.au. Rawiller, who has piloted Pierro to 9 victories, including an undefeated 8 in Sydney, is hoping to have his suspension "shaved" so that it doesn't include Saturday-week's Gr1 Randwick Guineas for which Pierro will be a strong fancy. Other jockeys in contention for the ride, should Rawiller's appeal fail, include Corey Brown (who finished 3rd on Pierro in the Gr1 Cox Plate), Tommy Berry & Jim Cassidy.
