AVDULLA IN HOT WATER OVER CELEBRATION

Jockey Brenton Avdulla has found himself in trouble with the stewards after making a gesture towards the runner up in the Sire’s Produce on Saturday which drew the attention of the rule makers and a review of his behaviour

Avdulla in trouble with the stewards

Avdulla was aboard Gary Portelli trained Fireburn when he was fined for making a pre-finish gesture in the ATC Sires' Produce Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on Saturday towards runner up She’s Extreme.

On review, chief steward Marc Van Gestal cited Avdulla for ‘willing the second horse on’. An act that Avdulla said was aimed at She’s Extreme’s trainer Anthony Cummings. 


“I loved that Anthony (Cummings) how he said that he should’ve beat me the other day (in the Golden Slipper),” Avdulla said post-race.

“It pissed me off because I don’t think anything would’ve gone with her and today just showed that.

“He was watching the wrong replay.”

Van Gestel questioned Avdulla on his actions and where he was showing “content for the rules” of racing, suggesting his actions could be portrayed as encouraging the “second horse to come past you”?

“I’m not willing it,” Avdulla told stewards.

Despite Avdulla pleading his case the jockey was fined $4000 for his actions and a further $500 for removing his skull cap prior to dismounting the filly. 

Meanwhile, Nash Rawiller and Fred Kersley were both fined for excessive whip use breaches.

Rawiller was fined $2000 for his whip breach in the Country Championships Final while Kersley was handed a hefty $5000 for breaking the rules in the Doncaster Mile.
