John Egan handed 10-day riding ban at Lingfield

Fri 13 Jan 2017

John Egan was in hot water with the stewards at Lingfield after being found guilty of failing to ride out Athletic in the Handicap.

The David Evans-trained eight-year-old was the 7-2 second-favourite for the one-mile contest and passed the post third behind the impressive Polymnia (14-1).

While clearly no match for the comfortable winner, Athletic was beaten just a head for second by Lucky Louie and the stewards felt Egan's mount would have finished second had the jockey not stopped riding shortly before the winning post.

Egan was suspended for 10 days (January 30 to February 4 and February 6 to February 9 inclusive).
