Singapore Jockey Samsir Disqualified For 2 Years

Thursday, 8th December 2011

In Singapore yesterday, stewards disqualified jockey Hamid Samsir for 2 years & fined him S$50,000 (A$40,000) for "failing to take all reasonable & permissible measures to obtain the best possible placing" when riding Fuku Ichiban for trainer Mohd Yusof at Kranji on Sunday 16 October. Stewards particularly noted Samsir: "on jumping, unnecessarily restrained his mount by pulling on the near-side rein, thereby resulting in his horse losing ground"; & "for a major part in the straight, he simulated the use of the whip & did not make contact with his horse".
