SUBMISSION FOR PENALTY:

Mr Oatham said Mr Campbell has 2 previous breaches within the last 6 months. The first was on April 13 where he received a 6- day suspension and was fined $600 for 10 strikes in a Listed Race. The second was on June 4 where he was suspended for 5 days. He submitted a penalty in line with the revised Guidelines for a third offence would be appropriate.

REASON FOR PENALTY:

Mr Campbell told the Committee he was conversant with the revised Whip Rule and its Penalty Guidelines that came into force today. He asked to start any suspension after racing at Ashburton on Monday 6th and this was granted. The Committee were of the opinion there were no aggravating or mitigating factors to depart from the new Penalty Guidelines. Mr Oatham had calculated Mr Campbell’s share of the stake monies for the Committee to apportion the appropriate fine.

CONCLUSIONS:

Jockey Corey Campbell is suspended for 5 National Riding Days. This suspension encompasses racing from the 7th September 2021 through to the 11th September 2021 inclusive. In addition to the suspension, Mr Campbell is fined approximately 50% of his share of stakes monies. This fine the Committee sets at $150.
