At the conclusion of an inquiry, Jockey M Ganeesh, the rider of PRINCE GONSKI, pleaded
guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA Rule 44(9)(a)(ii) in that whilst riding PRINCE
GONSKI approaching the 400M, he allowed his mount to shift out when insufficiently clear
of THE MILLIONAIRE resulting in that horse having to be checked.
In assessing the penalty, the Stewards took into consideration Jockey M Ganeeshs guilty plea,
mitigating factors, previous riding record and his submissions on penalty. Acting on the
provisions of MRA Rule 48(5), the Stewards deferred the commencement of Jockey M
Ganeeshs suspension. He was suspended from riding in races for a period of two (2)
Malaysian race days with effect from 17 January 2016 and to expire on 24 January 2016, both
dates inclusive. He was advised of his Right of Appeal (4:40pm).

thought he would not be 2 lengths clear to shift closer to the rails, and elected to race 4-wide at
this point.He also stated that Q NINE MYSTIC failed to run on and finished at the rear of the
The Stewards were not fully satisfied with Jockey H Bukharis explanation as they were of the
opinion that he may have been able to shift to a position outside the leader, MIA (C Goon) and
not cover extra ground at the 600M as he did on this occasion. The Stewards gave Jockey H
Bukhari the benefit of the doubt on this occasion, however, strongly advised him that a
repetition of this type of riding will be unacceptable.
