The National Horseracing Authority confirms that an Inquiry was held in Durban on 31 October 2016.  

Apprentice Jockey Eric Ngwane was charged with a contravention of Rule 62.2.9 in that as the rider of TIDE IS TURNING he rode this filly to the front of the field and as such, failed to take all reasonable measures to comply with the instructions given to him by Trainer Mr James Goodman, which were to obtain cover in the early stages in Race 6 at Greyville Racecourse on 19 October 2016.

Apprentice Jockey Ngwane pleaded guilty to the charge and was found guilty of the charge. 

The Board having considered all the evidence, suspended Apprentice E Ngwane from riding in races for a period of seven days. 

Apprentice E Ngwane has the right of appeal against the severity of the penalty imposed.
