Payne recovers


Michelle Payne’s one-month suspension may have been a blessing in disguise with the jockey revealing she has now taken care of ongoing medical issues.The Melbourne Cup-winning jockey was suspended last month after a test at Swan Hill on June 11 showed the presence of Phentermin­e, an appetite suppressan­t, in her system. The suspension prompted Payne to seek further advice over problems associated with her fall at Mildura in May last year that led to her losing part of her pancreas. Payne said she went to see her surgeon who found where he attached the pancreas to the stomach had sealed over with scar tissue.
