Interference – Agrella Suspended

Has the Right of Appeal against the penalty imposed

The National Horseracing Authority confirms that at an Inquiry held in Port Elizabeth on 22 November 2019, Jockey Wayne Agrella was charged with a contravention of Rule 62.2.7.

This arose in that as the rider of OPEN FIRE, he failed to ensure that he did not cause  interference to other runners at approximately the 1200m in Race 4 at Fairview Racecourse on 15 November 2019.

Jockey Agrella pleaded guilty to the charge and was found guilty of the charge.

After considering the evidence  the Inquiry Board imposed a penalty of a suspension from riding in races for a period of seven days.

Jockey Agrella has the Right of Appeal against the penalty imposed.
