An objection was lodged by Jockey C. S. Jodha, the rider of TIMELESS (Placed Second) against GOVERNOR GENERAL (App. K. Nazil, Placed First) and ABBEY (P. Trevor, Placed Fourth). The reason being, on jump out ABBEY (P. Trevor, dr.3) came out and GOVERNOR GENERAL (App. K. Nazil, dr.5) came in instead of travelling straight in the first 100 metres as per the Rules of Racing, due to which, his mount TIMELESS was badly squeezed and lost its rhythm and position and he had to cover lot of ground in the straight and this cost him a certain race, the verdict being half a length.

 

After considering the submissions made by Jockeys C. S. Jodha and P. Trevor as also App. K. Nazil who was accompanied by Trainer M. K. Jadhav, in conjunction with that of the Stipendiary Stewards and relying on their judgment, the Stewards decided to overrule the objection.

The Stewards of the Club at their meeting held on 3rd April, 2018 interviewed Tainer Bezan Chenoy and his Spokesperson, Mrs. Bakhtawar B. Chenoy as also Jockey P. S. Chouhan, in the above connection.

 

The Stewards of the Club having heard Jockey P. S. Chouhan extensively as also Trainer Bezan Chenoy and his Spokesperson, all statements/documents made/presented by the veterinary officers and the stipendiary stewards and viewed the video recording of the race in question, as also the horse’s two previous runs during the current Mumbai Meeting 2017/18 i.e. Race Nos.104 and 177. In addition, the Stewards also viewed the video recording of Race No.196 to compare Jockey P. S. Chouhan’s riding style on ADMO and having deliberated the matter at length, the Stewards did not accept the explanation tendered by Jockey P. S. Chouhan and held him liable for not permitting his mount LORD COMMANDER to run on its merits in Race No.230. In that,:-

 

a)       He did not follow the Trainer’s instructions;

b)       His riding efforts in the straight on a favourite were found wanting as compared to his known riding ability, as one of the senior most jockey’s in India. 

c)       There was a drift in odds (both in win and place) on LORD COMMANDER, while the winner, FINE TUNE, owned by the same part-owner was backed down.

 

Taking an over-all view, the Stewards held him liable of not permitting his mount LORD COMMANDER to run on its merits in Race No.230. Therefore, the Stewards decided to suspend his Jockey’s license w.e.f. 21st April, 2018 till the end of the Mumbai Meeting 2017/18 and not to grant him a Jockey’s license, if he applied for one, till 20th April, 2019.
