Blake Shinn has successfully appealed a careless riding ban that would have cost him the mount on English in the $10 million Everest.
Shinn received a 10-meeting ban for an incident in the Group One Golden Rose at Rosehill last Saturday.
Racing NSW stewards outed Shinn for shifting in aboard Pariah at the 1000-metre mark of the 1400m feature, an action that caused interference which culminated in Chauffeur, ridden by Brenton Avdulla, pushing Shogun Sun into the rail.
Shinn, who has a long association with the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained English, had his hearing before he Racing NSW Appeal Panel on Thursday.
Had the appeal been unsuccessful, Shinn would have been out from October 2 until October 20, six days after the world’s richest sprint race at Randwick.No tags for this post.
