Reasons For Decision: Jake Pracey-Holmes (28 July 2017)

Licensed Jockey Jake Pracey-Holmes (has) lodged an appeal against conviction and penalty after being found guilty of careless riding by the Stewards under AR137(a) after his ride on A Tissue A Tissue in Race 5 (Open Handicap, 1200m) at Moree Race Club on Thursday, 20 July 2017.

On this date Mr Pracey-Holmes's licence to ride in races was suspended for a period commencing on Wednesday, 26 July 2017 and to expire on Sunday, 6 August 2017, on which day he may resume riding.

Racing NSW Stewards later acceded to a request from jockey Pracey-Holmes to alter the period of suspension, and accordingly, subject to the outcome of the Appeal, his licence to ride in races is suspended for a period to commence on Sunday, 30 July 2017 and to expire on Tuesday, 8 August 2017, on which day he may resume riding. This appeal was heard on Friday, 28 July 2017 at the offices of Racing NSW.

(Note: In Race 6 on that day, Jake Pracey-Holmes incurred a second suspension which is now to commence on 8 August 2017 and to expire on 13 August 2017, on which day he may ride. In summary, subject to one Appeal, the total term of suspension which is to be served cumulatively will now commence on Sunday, 30 July 2017 and to expire on Sunday, 13 August 2017, on which day he may resume riding).

The Panel gave the following orders: 1. Appeal against the finding of guilt is dismissed 2. Penalty varied for a period to commence on Sunday, 30 July 2017 and to expire on Monday, 7 August 2017 (reduction of 1 meeting).

In summary, the total term of suspension which is to be served cumulatively will now commence on Sunday, 30 July 2017 and is to expire on Saturday, 12 August 2017, on which day he may resume riding. 3. 50% of the Appeal Deposit was forfeited
