Aus­tralia’s old­est jockey, 70 year-old

won’t ride again. Miller was shocked when his li­cence was re­voked by Rac­ing and Wa­ger­ing Western Aus­tralia.

RWWA said Miller was “de­clared un­able to ride as a re­sult of med­i­cal ad­vice”. Miller said his heart had been bro­ken and he would never set foot on a race­track again.

He fin­ished sec­ond at his last ride at Pin­jarra last Thurs­day. The veteran has won most of WA’s fea­ture races in his time, in­clud­ing the 2000 Rail­way Stakes on fin­ished off nicely for fifth over 1440m. Next start over more ground.

was heav­ily backed but he let the pun­ters down, weak­en­ing to fin­ish fifth. $30,000@1.40 the place, $20,500@$2.70. $10,000@$3.50. $2000@$10. “He’s a bit of a weirdo. He’s got a few an­tics.” LINDA MEECH af­ter win­ning on OUR PEAKY BLINDERS

BACK ME SACK ME

I am a big fan of @pv­landys but to sug­gest a re­stricted en­try race, no mat­ter what the prize money should have G1 sta­tus is il­log­i­cal based on the prece­dent of Magic Mil­lions, Inglis races etc. hav­ing no sta­tus, Ever­est is the same. Noth­ing to do with date clash. Nick Wil­liams @NCW717
