Dead Heat Inquiry: Maujean Fined



The National Horseracing Authority confirms that at an Inquiry held in Johannesburg on Tuesday, 20 October 2020, Jockey Chase Maujean was charged with a contravention of Rule 62.2.2.


The particulars being in that during the running of Race 1 at Turffontein Racecourse on 26 September 2020, whilst riding the horse PUERTO MANZANO (ARG):


1. He changed his crop into his left hand at about the 150m and struck PUERTO MANZANO (ARG) to which this gelding clearly responded. He then changed his crop back into his right hand, for no apparent reason and this resulted in a pause in his riding of the gelding, and


2. Thereafter the vigour with which Jockey Maujean rode PUERTO MANZANO (ARG) up until about the 75m, after this gelding had responded to the use of the crop in his left hand, (as stated above), was not to the standard expected of a competent and professional Jockey.


Jockey Maujean pleaded not guilty to the charge, but was found guilty of the charge.


The Inquiry Board, after hearing all the evidence in mitigation put forward in this matter and taking Jockey Maujean’s record into account, unanimously ruled that:


Jockey Maujean be fined the sum of R60 000 (sixty thousand rand) of which R30 000 (thirty thousand rand) is suspended for a period of 12 months, provided that Jockey Maujean is not found guilty of a contravention of this rule during that 12-month period.


Jockey Maujean has the Right of Appeal against both the finding and penalty imposed.
