04/03/02 Cassidy Appeals Guineas Suspension
r1jimcassidy.jpg (10563 bytes)Leading Sydney jockey Jim Cassidy has appealed against a suspension handed out for his winning ride in Saturday night's Group One Canterbury Guineas.

Cassidy was charged with careless riding and outed for a period to originally commence on Monday March 11 and expire on Thursday March 21.

Stewards charged the rider under AR137(a), in that whilst riding his mount along rounding the home turn, he permitted Carnegie Express to shift in when insufficiently clear of Pentastic, resulting in Pentastic being crowded onto the running rail and being severely checked.

Three other runners (Harp of Tara, Another Warrior and Rockley Opera) which were following were also hampered in the incident.

Brett Prebble the rider of the David Hall trained runner-up Pentastic protested against Cassidy and Carnegie Express but Stewards ruled the two and three quarter length margin was too significant to overturn the result.

Cassidy has appealed against both the charge as well as the severity of the penalty imposed.

The date for the appeal it yet to be determined.

As well as his winning ride aboard Carnegie Express for Gai Waterhouse, Cassidy had earlier won the Group Two Canterbury Stakes on Empire for Max Lees.
