At the conclusion of an inquiry, Jockey C Goon, the rider of LUCKY COIN, pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that when he rode LUCKY COIN, he allowed his mount to shift in when not sufficiently clear of MAIDANZ BEAUTY causing that horse to be checked.
In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey C Goon’s guilty plea, mitigating factors, previous riding record and his submissions on penalty. He was suspended from riding in races for a period of two (2) Malaysian race days with effect from 30 September 2019 and to expire on 12 October 2019, both dates inclusive. He was advised of his Right of Appeal (7:25pm).
