Racing Online - Horse Racing News - Australian Horse Racing News - Tarrant Gets A Stay On Disqualification

Queensland jockey Luke Tarrant has been granted a stay on his six-month disqualification for allegedly assaulting another rider in the weigh-in area at Doomben.

Tarrant has missed riding in the winter carnival after being disqualified on April 22.

An internal review confirmed the stewards decision last month but Tarrant lodged an appeal with the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

Tarrant sought a stay of the disqualification until his QCAT appeal was finalised.

Stewards opposed the stay application but on Monday QCAT granted it.

The stay will remain in place until the appeal is resolved and is subject to Tarrant filing more material by next Monday.

Tarrant was disqualified for six months after he was involved in a verbal and physical altercation with jockey Larry Cassidy in the vicinity of the scales.

It was alleged Tarrant had head-butted Cassidy while Tarrant was wearing his helmet.

The stay means Tarrant can resume riding for the time being.
