Roller coaster week for Emma Ljung

Apprentice Emma Ljung has completed a roller coaster week with a long shot winner and a suspension.

Lljung was stood down from riding after suffering heat stroke at the Ipswich meeting on January 14.

She was cleared to ride at Doomben on Wednesday but was again stood down by stewards and asked to consult the Racing Queensland doctor.

After seeing the doctor it was agreed Ljung’s riding weight would be lifted from 51 to 52kg, clearing the way for her to ride at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

During the Eagle Farm meeting stewards resumed an inquiry into Ljung’s ride on Golfing in the fifth race at Doomben on Wednesday.

Ljung pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding and was suspended for 11 days, to begin on Sunday week and expire on February 9.

However, the week ended on a better note when she won the Open Handicap (1600m) on nine-year-old Transporter who started at $71.
