SINGAPORE APRIL MEETING 2019
SUNDAY, 21 APRIL 2019:
RACE 3 [TF0509]
On Monday, 22 April 2019, Jockey J Azzopardi (pictured), the rider of PER INPOWER, exercised his Right of Appeal against the decision of the Panel of Stewards and the penalty imposed on him. He subsequently applied for a Stay of Sentence.
After considering submissions from Jockey Azzopardi on Monday, 22 April 2019, his application for a Stay of Sentence was granted by the Panel of Stipendiary Stewards. The Appeal will be heard at a date and time to be fixed.
J Azzopardi, the rider of PER INPOWER, was found guilty to a charge of foul riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(b)(i) in that for some distance passing the 1000m, he deliberately shifted his mount out to a point where it made heavy contact with REDDOT RISING (S Noh) on several occasions, forcing the horse out off its course near the 900m, subsequently resulting in that horse becoming very unbalanced.
