29/01/02 Hong Kong Hoop Banned for Improper Practice
Jockey John Egan has been handed a lengthy suspension by Hong Kong Stewards after an adjourned inquiry found him guilty of "improper practice."

Egan will ride at tomorrow night's Happy Valley meeting before beginning a two month suspension.

Stewards first quizzed Egan following his ride on Jade Ruyi at Happy Valley on Wednesday January 9, a run which was deemed as "disappointing."

Further evidence was taken from Egan and the trainer of Jade Juyi (Mr L Ho) at the following Hong Kong meeting three days later before it was again adjourned.

Egan was found guilty with "improper practice under Rule 151(7) in that the evidence he provided to the inquiry at Sha Tin on Saturday 12 January 2002 was not in accordance with the facts and was calculated to mislead the Stewards."

The rider will be free to ride next on April 1.
