ZAHRA’S APPEAL FAILS

ZAHRA’S APPEAL FAILS

Mark Zahra has failed in his appeal against the severity of a lengthy careless riding suspension incurred at Randwick last Saturday.

Zahra was banned for 25 meetings and fined $3800 for careless riding aboard the winner, Power Scheme, in the Listed Fernhill Handicap (1600m),  resulting in two horses and their jockeys Andrew Adkins and Glyn Schofield falling in the concluding stages of the race.

Zahra’s appeal was dismissed yesterday with his ban to begin on April 23 and end on June 1. Zahra is booked for four rides at Randwick tomorrow including Power Scheme in the Champagne Stakes and another four at Sandown on Monday before his ban begins.
