26/01/02 Suspension Payne for Michelle
Michelle Payne, a member of the famous Victoria riding family, suffered her first suspension in the final race at Caulfield today.

Payne, was hauled into the steward's room after her handling of Knockroe in the Macquarie Handicap over 1800 metres.

Stewards ruled that Payne had allowed her mount to shift in at the 1300 metre mark when insufficiently clear of the eventual race winner Mr. Casanova.

During the chain reaction Si Senor, Classic Secret and Gunnamatta were all severely hampered.

Payne was outed for a period to commence at midnight on Thursday and to expire at midnight on Friday 15 February.

The stewards report stated that "in arriving at the penatly stewards took into account that Michelle Payne had not been suspended previously."
