Glyn Schofield suspension appeal fails

Glyn Schofield has failed to in his bid to have a careless riding ban reduced and will miss Golden Slipper day.

Racing NSW stewards outed Schofield for eight meetings for his ride on winner Kementari in the Group One Randwick Guineas last Saturday.

He argued interference to Capital Gain in the early stages of the 1600m race was not entirely his fault, claiming Capital Gain’s jockey Adam Hyeronimus contributed to the incident.
