Scrutinised jockeys Blake Shinn and Peter Robl will appear before stewards on Friday to answer serious charges related to illegal betting activities.

The pair were charged last week after an inquiry into transactions on TAB accounts belonging to Shinn’s mother Carol and Robl’s wife Elaine.

Elaine Robl, a trackwork rider, has been charged with being a party relating to both jockeys betting, whilst Carol Shinn, a licensed stablehand, has been charged with being a party to just her son Blake.

Under the rules of racing, jockeys are not allowed to bet, because the integrity of the sport comes under scrutiny.

Peter Robl has also been charged with giving false evidence at the first hearing of the inquiry on September 29 when he denied knowledge of Shinn using his wife’s betting account.

The inquiry centres on Robl’s betting activities between October 9, 2008 and September 29 this year.

In Shinn’s case, the focus is on bets placed via his mother’s account between October 5, 2008 and September 29, 2010 and bets on Elaine Robl’s account between July 17 and September 29 this year.

If found guilty, the jockeys face penalties ranging from suspension to disqualification and/or harsh monetary fines.
