The National Horseracing Authority confirms that at an inquiry held in Johannesburg on Sunday 23 June 2019, Jockey Marco van Rensburg was charged with a contravention of Rule 62.27.
This arose in that he, as the rider of YESSIRICANBOOGIE, caused interference to WHAT YOU ARE (ridden by Jockey C Orffer) in the concluding stages of the 5th race run at Scottsville racecourse on Saturday 25 May 2019.
Jockey van Rensburg pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The Inquiry Board found Jockey van Rensburg guilty and imposed a penalty of a suspension from riding in races for a period of 7 seven days.
Jockey van Rensburg has the Right of Appeal against both the finding and the penalty imposed.
