BAYLISS CHARGED BY STEWARDS

Top Sydney jockey Regan Bayliss is rueing the cost of a poor ride at Central Coast this week as a ride in a standard handicap is likely to cost him runs in all the big spring races in New South Wales

Regan Bayliss handed costly suspension

The charge stems around Bayliss’ ride on All Too Scottish for the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott Stable after Bayliss failed to ride out his mount and was subsequently in breach of AR131, failing to ride out his horse.

All Too Scottish was $13 in betting for the Bott and Waterhouse stable and was snatched on the line by Bjorn Baker trained Midori Beauty with an official margin declared at 0.09 lengths on records.

Bayliss was coming into the Central Coast meeting having had one of the best weekends in his career having won two Group 1 titles with the headline being a win in the Epsom Handicap aboard Joe Pride trained Private Eye.

Now he walks away with a three week suspension from racing which will begin on the 17th October and end on the 7th November.

Stewards reported afterwards that they felt the appropriate sanction was a 6 week suspension, however this was cut in half after a guilty plea was submitted by Bayliss.

The sanctions do allow Bayliss to ride in the $15m Everest on October the 16th where he is already booked to ride Singapore import The Inferno.

Regan Bayliss’ suspension date means that he is now free to ride in further group one contests this weekend but does mean he is unable to ride Private Eye for the Joe Pride Stable in upcoming races.

A particularly costly encounter will mean that Bayliss will be unable to ride Private Eye in the $7.5m Golden Eagle at Rosehill later this month.
