Racing NSW Stewards Suspend Licensed Jockey Aaron Bullock

Racing NSW Stewards yesterday inquired into the analyst’s findings relative to a urine sample provided by licensed jockey Aaron Bullock at Newcastle Racecourse on Monday, 29th October 2018.

Evidence was taken from Mr Bullock and Dr Adam Cawley, Science Manager of the Australian Racing Forensic Laboratory, who provided evidence via telephone.

Mr Bullock pleaded guilty to a charge under AR81A(1)(a) in that the sample provided by him was found upon analysis to contain banned substances under AR81B.

Mr Bullock’s licence was suspended in full for a period of 9 months backdated to commence on Thursday, 22 November 2018, the day Mr Bullock was stood down, and to expire on 21st August 2019, on which day he may resume riding.

Mr Bullock was advised that under the provisions of AR196(4), should he complete a satisfactory period of professional counselling the final 3 months of the suspension would be stayed allowing Mr Bullock to resume riding on 21st May 2019.

Mr Bullock was further advised that, in accordance with AR81A(1)(4), he would be required to provide a urine sample which is free from any substance banned by AR81B.

In assessing penalty, Stewards considered Mr Bullock’s guilty plea, his forthright evidence and his unblemished record in respect to AR81A(1)(a) in some 12 years of holding a license, however, Stewards were also mindful of the nature of the substances detected in the sample.

Mr Bullock was advised of his right of appeal.
