quashed on appeal
JOCKEY Kirsty Milczarek has had her two-year ban for passing on information for rewards and committing fraudulent or corrupt practice quashed by the appeal board.
Milczarek, 31, was one of four jockeys warned off by the BHA in December along with owners Maurice Sines, James Crickmore and their associates Peter and Nick Gold.
Milczarek's solicitor Christopher Stewart-Moore said: "Kirsty is delighted and is looking forward to resuming her career on an upward trajectory."
The BHA's head of integrity, compliance and licencing Paul Scotney said: "We accept the decision of the appeal board to allow the appeal of Kirsty Milczarek.
"However, we stand by the original decision to include the race as one of the ten under scrutiny on account of the extraordinary betting patterns and the pattern of communication around the race."
Sines and Crickmore had their appeals thrown out on Tuesday but their bans were reduced to 13 years from 14.
Peter and Nick Gold also had appeals rejected but Nick Gold had the length of time for re-examination of his exclusion order reduced from seven years to five.
