Kieren Fox

The Disciplinary Panel of the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) on 20 July 2015 will hold an enquiry to establish whether or not Kieren Fox, the rider of MULLIONHEIR, placed fourth in the Betfred Mobile Stakes at Newmarket on 10 July 2015, has committed a breach of Schedule (B)6 Part 2 of the Rules of Racing concerning his use of the whip.  

The matter was referred to the BHA by the Newmarket Stewards following an enquiry on the same day because this was Fox’s fifth offence of mis-use of the whip, warranting a suspension of between 2 to 6 days, in the last six months.

Tom Messenger

On 20 July 2015 the Disciplinary Panel of the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) will hear an appeal by Tom Messenger against the decision of the Worcester Stewards to suspend his licence for 10 days for failing to ride CROSSLANES (IRE) on its merits in the www.barchester.com Maiden Hurdle Race at Worcester on 6 July 2015.

The particular failing identified by the Worcester Stewards was that described in Rule (B)59.4 – that Messenger failed to take all reasonable and permissible measures to ride the filly on its merits.
