Hayley Turner’s License Suspended For Betting

Published on 15/12/17

The British Horse Racing Authority takes rules very seriously, and when they find anything suspicious they will step into it.

It recently happened to Hayley Turner who had her jockey’s license suspended for three months when they realised she placed bets online.

She retired in 2015 but kept her licence, so theoretically the bets where placed outside the term and rules.

Jockey Hayley Turner says her three-month ban for breaching British Horseracing Authority (BHA) betting rules is “harsh” and a “bitter pill to swallow”.

“I’m a bit disappointed, three months is a quarter of a year not earning any money and the BHA have said I’m not a threat to the integrity of the sport. It’s hard to understand, to be honest.”

She argues that the BHA acknowledge that her stakes had been modest, and she had not wagered on races in which she was involved.

However, she had still broken a longstanding rule used for everyone in the sport.

Turner made a net profit of £160 since she opened a betting account with Paddy Power in December 2015. In total she placed 164 bets before the sportsbook notified the BHA of the rule breach.

Regarding the bets she said:

“I have never had bet on my own horse and I have never bet in a race that I was riding in. It was just a stupid error that I have made. The BHA said themselves I am not a threat and integrity is not a concern.”

It is hard to believe she didn’t know the rules, as one of the female pioneers in Horse Racing, she is an example and authority to the community.

As a winner of “Most Inspiration Sportswoman” award in 2011, she can’t allow this behaviour to go unnoticed.

We have no doubt this kind of penalty will deter other jockeys from the temptation of taking a punt on the horses.
