Jockey Chad Little will not be riding at Turffontein today as he is under a temporary suspension.

This arose from an incident at the Vaal on Tuesday.

Little arrived on course prior to his ride in race 4 and  was advised by the Stipendiary Stewards that he was required to provide a urine sample.

He presented himself in the medical centre at 15h30.

Following numerous unsuccessful attempts to provide a sample throughout the afternoon,  Little was permitted to leave the course at 18h00.

An investigation was opened into Little’s failure to provide a urine sample and  the Stipendiary Board decided after due deliberation and affording him the opportunity to address the Stewards, which he failed to do, to invoke the provisions of Rule 4.2.18 and to place an interim suspension on him until such time as the investigation is finalized.

Little was replaced on his engagements at the Vaal on Thursday and also for today.

There are eight races carded today at Turffontein, with the first off at 12h45.

The false rail is set at zero on the back straight and bend with a 2m spur at the 700m mark.
