Four Australian Jockeys Suspended Three Months For Breach Of COVID-19 Protocols

Leading Australian jockey Jamie Kah was issued a three-month suspension on Monday, reports skysports.com, due to a breach in COVID-19 protocols of both state government and racing regulators. Also issued similar suspensions were jockeys Ben Melham, Ethan Brown, and Celine Gaudray.

The group was found to have attended a gathering at an Airbnb on Wednesday evening. Racing Victoria suspended each of the four jockeys through Nov. 25.

“I want to apologize for my recent behavior in breaching the government and racing Covid rules,” Kah wrote on Twitter. “I am deeply embarrassed and disappointed with myself. There is no excuse for what I have done and I have let myself down, my family and friends, the racing industry and all Victorians who are doing the right thing in this lockdown. I deserve the penalty handed down by the stewards and will take time to reflect on my actions and its impact on so many people.”
