I would have thought McDonald would be one of the smarter ones but obviously not.
I heard a rider who regularly rides for Godolphin in Sydney tipped the authorities off.

You make a fair point.
Even if we put ethics aside racing really has no idea about PR.

Correct & he was put on his arse by McDonald  for putting him in.

He has done his time.    Lets hope he has learned his lesson.    Good luck to him.  There are lots in the game doing much worse than he did.

It should be compulsory for jockeys to back their own mounts.

In fact, stop GIVING Them money just for getting on, make that their ONLY income, and see how much they all improve!!!
In reference to every post in the Trump thread ... "There may have been a tiny bit of license taken there" ... Ok, Thanks for the "heads up" PT!

Quite a few jockeys have received far less for hooking one, some have got nothing for failing to give their mounts the best possible chance of winning (or gross incompetence if you prefer). It will be interesting to see what Billy Egan gets for the Zizzis ride, taking into account his youth and the (possible/probable) effects of riding instructions. Although imo considerably enhanced by his position and high earnings from the sport, Jmac's transgression is well down the scale.
