Stewards Quizz Jockey Robinson Over Punter Link

Wednesday, 28th January 2009

In Australia, Allan Robinson "is the rider at the centre of an on-going stewards inquiry into alleged links with a punter who has made a mini-fortune betting on NSW country races," reported The Daily Telegraph. Robinson & another unnamed bush jockey "have been the talk of the track for some weeks after stewards began a probe into the punter's betting activities". The punter "who is not a well-known racetrack identity, has been using betting exchanges to make his investments on bush meetings in recent months". Newcastle-based Robinson "is understood to have ridden at a number of those country race meetings"; when contacted yesterday & "pressed whether he was the jockey involved in the stewards inquiry" he replied: "No comment." Racing NSW chief steward Ray Murrihy told the newspaper: "All I am prepared to say is that stewards are investigating betting activities across a range of country & provincial meetings." Murrihy stressed stewards had not laid any charges.
