07/08/02 Robinson Outed After Sydney Double
Larrikan 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.
