The particulars being, that whilst riding CAPE EAGLE, he failed to take all reasonable measures throughout the race to ensure that this gelding was given a full opportunity to win or obtain the best possible placing in Race 6 at Hollywoodbets Greyville Racecourse on 15 October 2023.

Jockey Khathi pleaded not guilty but was found guilty of the charge.

Watch from 2:15 

The Inquiry Board, after considering the mitigating and aggravating factors and that it was found that Jockey Khathi had failed to ride CAPE EAGLE out with sufficient vigour and determination which in the opinion of the Stewards, had a bearing on the result of the race, ruled that he be suspended from riding in races for a period of 120 (one hundred and twenty days).

Jockey Khathi was given the Right of Appeal against both the finding and the penalty imposed.
