CASSIDY PUT OUT FOR NINE DAYS

Jockey Larry Cassidy was suspended for nine days for shifting in on Mrs Madrid and causing Sampson to be checked near the 1600 metres of the P J O’Shea Stakes at Doomben on Saturday.

Cassidy’s ban begins next Sunday after he rides Princess Posh in the Stradbroke Handicap.

In another incident at Doomben, apprentice Michael Murphy was fined a total of $1500 after he had to be replaced on Echo Effect in the Moreton Cup because he was overweight. He was fined $500 for the weight offence and $1000 for misbehaviour after being fined.

On the Gold Coast apprentice Clayton Gallagher was suspended for two weeks after refusing a stewards direction to hand over his mobile phone.
