Stewards Conclude Inquiry Into Jockey Bobby El-Issa

Racing NSW Stewards have concluded an inquiry opened on 9 October 2017 regarding a report from SERA and Canberra Racing Club Chairman of Stewards, Jim Walshe, relative to the behaviour of licensed jockey, Bobby El-Issa, towards Mr Walshe whilst he was in the course of his duties.

Evidence on 9 October 2017 was taken from Bobby El-Issa, Mr Walshe, Starter Daryl Riches and Clerk of Scales, Ms Louise Milton.

Bobby El-Issa, assisted by solicitor Paul O’Sullivan, pleaded guilty to a charge under AR175(j) in that on five separate occasions at race meetings conducted at Goulburn 1 September 2017, Hawkesbury, 2 September 2017 and Canberra, 8 September 2017, he improperly behaved towards Mr Walshe.

After considering all relevant matters in respect to penalty, jockey El-Issa was fined the sum of $2000. Stewards ruled that under the provisions of AR196(4) that $1000 of the penalty would be stayed on the basis that he does not offend rules relating to conduct or behaviour during that period.

Further, he was placed on notice that any further breach of these rules would entitle the Stewards to consider a period of suspension or disqualification and a referral to the Licensing Committee in respect to his suitability to hold a jockey’s licence, in addition to the $1000 stayed monetary penalty being applied.

Bobby El-Issa was advised of his rights of appeal.

Relevant Rule
AR 175.
The Principal Racing Authority (or the Stewards exercising powers delegated to them) may penalise;

(j) Any person guilty of improper or insulting behaviour at any time towards the Principal Racing Authority, the Committee of any Club or Association, or Stewards, or any official or employee of the Principal Racing Authority, Club or Association, in relation to their or his duties.
