Stew­ards act on care­less rid­ing

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING -

MARC Van Ges­tel said Jean Van Over­meire’s sus­pen­sion record was a worry after he was outed for nine meet­ings and sus­pended from April 29 to May 13 for his ride on Guer­rier in the Cham­pagne Stakes.

“That record is con­cern­ing,” the chief stew­ard said. “You’ve got to keep your mounts straight. Safety is the No.1 pri­or­ity.”

Glyn Schofield was sus­pended for care­less rid­ing and got seven meet­ings — out from April 29 to May 12.

Mark Zahra was sus­pended for six meet­ings for care­less rid­ing in the Cham­pagne Stakes and will be out of ac­tion from April 22 to May 5.
