Damien Oliver will miss Cox Plate day and Victoria Derby day

Damien Oliver has failed to have his 20-meeting suspension for reckless riding overturned after the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board dismissed his appeal this morning.

During the appeal Oliver stated that had he been charged with careless riding, rather than reckless riding, he may have pleaded guilty.

Dean Yendall, who was riding Ken’s Dream in the Blue Sapphire Stakes, gave evidence at the hearing claiming that the actions of Oliver placed him at high risk.

Chris Symons also appeared as a witness claiming the incident was worthy of a careless riding charge.

“This is a careless riding charge every day of the week” Symons said.

Racing Victoria chief steward Terry Bailey said that Oliver showed Yendall little respect and stood firm saying the charge of reckless riding was the correct call.

“If we could have charged him with careless riding, we would have.” Bailey said.

Oliver will now miss a number of key race meetings during the Spring Carnival including Cox Plate day and Victoria Derby day.
