The National Horseracing Authority confirms that at an Inquiry held at the Vaal Racecourse on 26 September 2019, Jockey Chase Maujean was charged with a contravention of Rule 62.2.7.
This arose in that, as the rider of Archilles, he failed to ensure that he did not cause interference to other runners at approximately the 400m in Race 4 at the Vaal Racecourse on 19 September 2019.
Jockey Maujean pleaded not guilty to the charge, but was found guilty of the charge.
The Inquiry Board, in determining a suitable penalty, took into account all evidence that was led at the inquiry and imposed a penalty of a suspension from riding in races for a period of seven days.
Jockey Maujean has the Right of Appeal against both the finding and the penalty imposed.
