Horse-Racing Ban!

By Prof Dr Ian Blackshaw

A jockey, who elbowed another jockey, Rossa Ryan, out of his saddle, has been banned by France Galop for 60 days.

Christophe Soumillon, a Belgian, has apologised for the incident, which took place at Saint- Cloud and which left the Irishman on the ground, but he was able to walk away for a medical check.

Fortunately, Ryan and his horse were fine!

Soumillon claims that:

I didn’t do it on purpose to make him fall off his horse. I was just trying to keep my position.”

And has apologised to all concerned.

He went on to take second place in the race but was disqualified.

His ban will begin on 14 October 2022, which means that he will be able to ride Vadeni in the ‘Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe’, Europe’s richest race, which takes place at ParisLongchamp on 2 October 2022.
