James McDonald Suspended: An Update

Last updated on November 12th, 2022 at 04:09 pm

James McDonald, now regarded as the world’s best jockey, has been barred from riding for the next eight race meets, as announced last week. The 30-year-old Kiwi was given a riding ban by Racing Victoria stewards for “careless riding” after winning race three atop the heavy favorite Roots on Oaks day at Flemington. The ban will begin at 12 a.m. on Saturday, allowing McDonald to end his Melbourne Cup carnival by riding on Stakes day at Flemington.

McDonald rode Verry Elleegant to victory in the Melbourne Cup last year, but he was unable to compete in Tuesday’s main event because his ride was retired prior to the barrier draw. On race day, he failed to win a race, although three days earlier, he rode four winners on the Derby card. Many gambling platforms saw a lot of action on this race, even without him.

The jockey’s penalty period was reduced after his appeal was heard on Tuesday, allowing him to ride at Newcastle. Trainers moved quickly to secure McDonald’s services for Saturday, and Chris Waller hired the rider to take Skyman in the Hunter Stakes.

Blondeau, the winner of this year’s Listed Takeover Target Stakes, Through The Cracks, and last year’s Villiers Stakes winner Brutality are all emergencies. Don’t forget to customize the sports betting experience for your players to get more action on their horse betting.
