Tasmanian jockey Craig Luttrell is set to spend the next two months on the sidelines for his role in a horrific incident that saw 5 horses fall at a Hobart meeting earlier this month.

Luttrell pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding in that he allowed his mount (A Matter Of Time) to shift in near the 600m when not sufficiently clear, tightening Pinkeyes Pride.

The interference caused Pinkeyes Pride to fall around the 600m mark which then created a chain reaction involving four other horses who fell and lost their riders.

As a result of the fall, leading Tasmanian jockey David Pires (Grave Digger) required surgery on a fractured hip which could see him out of the saddle for a year.

Jockeys Shuji Amano (Pinkeyes Pride), Georgie Catania (Miss Buzz), Bulent Muchu (Jewels) and Jason Maskiell (Zipponet) were also taken to Hobart Hospital after the fall.

Four of the horses involved involved were able to walk away unscathed while Pires’ mount Grave Digger had to be humanely euthanized post-race.

Luttrell’s suspension will expire at midnight on 21 April.
