The nine jockeys banned for failing to pull up during a race that was declared void at Wetherby last Wednesday have failed in their appeal against 10-day suspensions.
Sixteen-time champion Tony McCoy and leading riders Graham Lee, Paddy Brennan and Denis O’Regan were among those found guilty of failing to stop after a yellow flag was shown due to a stricken horse on the course.
Danny Cook, Jonathon Bewley, Alexander Voy, Brian Hughes and Brian Toomey were the other riders who continued to race.
The British Horseracing Authority disciplinary panel upheld the bans (October 26-November 4) at an appeal hearing in London on Wednesday.
The Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby and the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter are two major races the jockeys will miss.
