08/03/02 Baster's Treble Soured by Suspension
r6sbaster.jpg (8992 bytes)Leading Melbourne jockey Stephen Baster took riding honours at Cranbourne yesterday with a winning treble, but he day was soured when he was suspended by Stewards.

Baster was charged and found guilty of careless riding aboard Beach Symphony in the Community Services Class One Handicap.

Stewards found that Baster "permitted his mount to shift in approaching the winning post when not sufficiently clear of Cadash and Jughead Jed, which resulted in those horses having to be checked."

Baster will be forced to sit and watch from the sidelines for just over two weeks. His ban begins at midnight on Monday and will expire at midnight on Tuesday March 26.

The inquiry in the Stewards room was the dampner on what was a great day out for the hoop, as he booted home a winning treble.

After winning the third race aboard the Leon Corstens trained Barassassin he took the next race as well with Beach Symphony (the race he was outed) for Steve Richards.

He then completed the treble when he teamed up with the in form Tony McEvoy when Shanicity won the Brown Sawdust Class 4 Handicap in a thrilling three way finish.

Baster will be hoping to go out on a winning note over the weekend when he prepares for a number of handy rides.

Tomorrow Baster will ride Flying Spice (Race 3), Fappiano's Son (Race 5), and the last start winner Rubitano in the Newmarket Handicap (Race 6). He also partners the Ross McDonald trained Tully Thunder in the AV Kewney Stakes (Race 8) and Prosecution in the last for George Hanlon.

On Monday he will ride Figeac (Race 1), Sheraton (Race 2), It's Who Deanie (Race 3), Encosterino (Race 4) and Ramano's Star (Race 8).
