10/04/02 Relieved Rawiller Cleared of Two Month Ban
r7nashrawiller.jpg (11956 bytes)Leading Melbourne jockey Nash Rawiller has been cleared of a serious charge of deliberately hitting a horse over the head with a whip at an appeal today.

Rawiller was originally handed a two month suspension for the charge which was slapped on him after a ride at Mornington on March 13.

Not suprisingly Rawiller said he was relieved his name had been cleared and he was looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.

"It's obvisouly a great relief," Rawiller told Cyberhorse.

"The whole thing has been hanging over my shoulders for two and a half weeks now," he added.

"It was a pretty serious charge and I'm very happy I've been cleared."

Rawiller said he was looking forward to picking up some nice rides over the upcoming Adelaide Cup Carnival.

"All going well I would be riding (the Tony Noonan trained) Yammer in the Adelaide Cup," Rawiller added.

The popular hoop confessed today when the original sentence was handed out last month he was rocked.

"I was definitely shocked at the time," he reflected. "I just couldn't believe it."

"I'm just glad it's all behind me now and I can get back to riding."

Fans of Rawiller can look forward to seeing the hoop back in the saddle on Monday.
