Feature Winner – Penny Gets 14 Days

Result not impacted upon

Jockey Jarryd Penny has been given a 14 day suspension following his ride on Clafoutis to win the Gr3 Acacia Stakes at Turffontein on Sunday.

There was much debate and confusion after the Stipes gave the ‘no further action’, following an untidy race on Sunday.

They reported that at approximately the 100m, GILDED BUTTERFLY (K Matsunyane) and EMERALD PRINCESS (K de Melo) came together and bumped when awkwardly placed between HOLLYWOODBOUND (G Lerena) and CLAFOUTIS (J Penny), which shifted out away from the crop.

Thereafter, TERRA TIME (D Schwarz), was brushed out by HOLLYWOODBOUND (G Lerena), which was carried out by CLAFOUTIS (J Penny), which continued to shift out away from the crop.

A race review was called by a member of the Stipendiary Board into these incidents, he was satisfied that the result of the race had not been affected and therefore took no further action. However, an inquiry was opened.

Watch the replay here:

Jockey Jarryd Penny was charged with a contravention of Rule 62.2.7 in that he, as the rider of CLAFOUTIS, failed to ensure that he did not cause interference to TERRA TIME, HOLLYWOODBOUND, GILDED BUTTERFLY and EMERALD PRINCESS when he shifted out the concluding stages. 

Penny signed an Admission of Guilt and is suspended from riding in races for a period of fourteen (14) days. Suspension dates:  11 March 2023 to 24 March 2023 (both days inclusive).
