Watch the ride here

The National Horseracing Authority confirms that at an Inquiry held in Durban on 16 January 2020, Apprentice Jockey Joshwin Solomons was charged with a contravention of Rule 62.2.3.

This arose in that he failed to ride BLEU ROYALE out to the end of the race, thereby prejudicing his chances of obtaining 2nd position in Race 1 at Scottsville Racecourse on 5 January 2020.

Watch the final stages here – he is wearing the red cap down the inside:

Apprentice Jockey Solomons pleaded guilty to the charge.

The Inquiry Board found Apprentice Jockey Solomons guilty of the charge.

After considering all the facts and that this was his first offence of this nature, imposed a penalty of a suspension from riding in races for a period of twenty one (21) days.

Apprentice Jockey Solomons has the Right of Appeal against the severity of the penalty imposed.
