Flat Jockeys Championship

Mick Quinn

The Disciplinary Committee of the Jockey Club held an enquiry on 28th June 2001 to establish whether or not Mick Quinn, a licensed trainer, had committed a breach of Rule 51 of the Rules of Racing, in that the overall condition of Winsome George, Arab Gold and Zola (IRE) fell below that expected of a licensed trainer, indicative of a lack of care and skill on Quinn's part towards both the owners and the horses in his charge

Having considered the evidence, including a statement from Quinn, who was legally represented, Dr Peter Webbon, the Jockey Club Chief Veterinary Advisor, a Jockey Club Investigating Officer, Mick O'Gorman, a Veterinary Surgeon, Ms Jane Murfett, a member of the public and Joe Darby, a stable employee, the Committee accepted an admission from him that he was in breach of Rule 51, withdrew Quinn's licence to train with effect from Friday 6th July and informed him that he should not reapply for a licence before 1st January 2004.

Rory Lawther

The Disciplinary Committee of the Jockey Club held an enquiry on 28th June 2001 to consider whether or not Mr Rory Lawther, had committed a breach of Regulation 170 (vi) (c) of the Jockey Club Regulations for Point-to-Point Steeple Chases, in that he failed to include the dislocation of his right foot, which occurred in August 2000, on the Declaration of Health, signed and dated 12th December 2000, which accompanied his Application for a Riders Qualification Certificate for the 2001 Point-to-Point Season.

Having considered the evidence, including a statement from Mr Lawther, the Committee accepted an admission from him that he was in breach of Regulation 170 (vi) (c) and imposed a fine of £100 upon him.


A strong British challenge looks likely for Sunday's Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud.

At Wednesday's first acceptance stage, eight British-trained horses remained in the contest.

Sir Michael Stoute has Little Rock, Adilabad and Air Marshall entered while Michael Jarvis has entered last season's French Derby hero Holding Court, although the Newmarket trainer revealed today that the Hernando colt is likely to bypass the Group One event. Godolphin's sole entry is Ekraar.

The remaining British-trained entries are John Dunlop's Water Jump and the Barry Hills-trained due Perfect Sunday and Mr Combustible - although they both hold entries for the Budweiser Irish Derby which takes place the same day.

France could be represented by last season's Arc runner-up Egyptband and Hightori.


Conditonal jockey David Kinsella was unhurt in a horrific car accident yesterday when he was travelling to Thirsk. Kinsella's car skidded on a greasy road and overturned three times, being written off in the process.

Kinsella's boss Eric Wheeler said today: "He's been very lucky, he hit a slippery patch on the road and went over but there's not a scratch on him and he's back at work already.

"It's a lesson to be learned and I've already told him that there's no point me giving him a rollicking.

"He's just annoyed that he missed a winning ride but he's got time on his side and he'll make a jockey - I've got two grand kids in him and Steven (Carson)."

Wheeler went on to reveal that his useful sprinter Dancing Mystery is likely to line up for the Listed Porcelenosa Sprint at the Sandown Summer Carnival: "I'm a bit annoyed to have missed the deadline for Hong Kong with him but I hope I can find a little race for him over here," added the trainer.

"The handicapper's got hold of him after we had a lot of fun with him last year (winning six times) but he's in good form and we'll go to Sandown."
