Rob Hornby Suspended Seven Days, To Miss Royal Ascot

Rob Hornby will serve his suspension from June 16-22Scoop Dyga

Due to having failed to weigh in after finishing third in a race at Nottingham, Rob Hornby has been suspended seven days from June 16-22, and will miss the Royal Ascot meeting.

The incident occurred on Sunday, June 2 in a Class 5 handicap at Nottingham with the rider aboard Surrey Belle (GB) (Golden Horn {GB}), who past the post in third as a joint favourite. However, since Hornby did not weigh in, his mount was later disqualified with the stewards' report reading, “The clerk of the scales objected to Surrey Belle, placed third, ridden by Rob Hornby on the grounds of the rider failing to weigh in. Surrey Belle was disqualified and the placings revised as follows: First- Expressionless, Second- Marbuzet, Third- Merrijig and Fourth- Liberated Lad.”

The report continued with a brief statement that Hornby had been interviewed, and that afterwards received his suspension and was not entitled to a riding fee.
