By Larry Cassidy | Friday, September 30, 2011

Larry Cassidy currently has forty-two Group 1 successes behind his name. He is a multiple Premiership winning jockey having taken out three titles in Sydney and one in Brisbane. Larry’s View, the personal blog of this top class rider will appear on horseracingonly.com.au every Friday, workload permitting.

The blog this week is short and, perhaps, not so sweet.

By now it is common knowledge that I have been handed a three month suspension by Queensland Racing Stewards who found me guilty of a running and handling charge with regard to my ride on Trump on September 17.

I am appealing that decision.

As the case is therefore on-going it is clearly neither appropriate, nor in my interests, to comment any further on this issue at this time. Rather, my time is better spent pouring over the 200 page plus enquiry transcript as I set about preparing my defense which I will present at Racing Queensland on Thursday.

I trust you will all understand why I cannot respond at this time to your feedback on the subject, which has obviously been the hot topic of the week.

Till next week,
