James McDonald copped a seven-meeting suspension for causing interference in the $1 million Golden Rose on Saturday, but the apprentice will not miss any of Scarlett Lady’s spring races.

McDonald pleaded guilty to shifting in at the 600m mark of the Golden Rose, causing Helmet on his inside to be “severely checked” with Smart Missile also being hampered.

The 19-year-old will start his suspension after next Saturday and can return to the saddle on September 30, one day before the Epsom Handicap meeting.

Queensland Oaks winner Scarlett Lady will run in next Saturday’s Group One Underwood Stakes (1800m) in Melbourne and then the Group One Turnbull Stakes (2000m) on October 2.

McDonald said he would not be appealing the suspension.

Foxwedge was third across the line in the Golden Rose, won by Manawanui, but was relegated to fourth after Helmet’s jockey Kerrin McEvoy successfully protested against McDonald on Foxwedge over the interference.

“We don’t want big races destroyed by interference,” chief steward Ray Murrihy told McDonald.

“Six horses should be able to get around safely.”

Meanwhile, Glyn Schofield was fined $500 for his celebration and waving of the whip on the winner Manawanui before the winning post.

“We told him it was foolish in the extreme,” Murrihy said.

“The horses (Manawanui and runner-up Smart Missile) are nearly a full track width apart and he was only a neck in front.”
