Sydney jockey Allan Robinson has experienced racing's highs and lows at today's Canterbury
meeting in Sydney.
The jockey took the early honours
on the program when he rode a winning double, but his day was well and truly soured when
he suffered a suspension.
Stewards outed Robinson for careless riding after his
handling of Padlock, the second of his two winners for the afternoon.
Officials noted that Robinson had allowed his mount to
shift out over the concluding 100 metres of the race and stewards also said he had failed
to attempt to straighten his mount in the run to the line.
It is a blow to Robinson who'd made a lightning start to
the new racing season. He told reporters outside the stewards room today that from his
past five meetings he had ridden four trebles and a double.
His suspension will see him out of the saddle from next
Tuesday, after the Muswellbrook meeting in New South Wales, until August 25. He will be
free to ride the following day.
Meanwhile, in other news it is believed promising NSW based
apprentice Ryan Wiggins will lodge an appeal against a lengthy suspension he received in
the ACT late last month.
Wiggins copped a two month penalty after stewards ruled
that he had not used enough vigour and given one of his rides every possible chance of
winning in Canberra on July 19.
