The race sparked a punter furore after a jockey was banned for pleading guilty under the non-trier rule.
But racing fans thought it was a ‘joke’, he was suspended in the first place because there was nothing wrong with his ride.
Australian rider Regan Bayliss was slapped with a three-week suspension after finishing second in a six furlong competition at Gosford.
The Group 1 winning jockey will now miss out on a money-making ride at the prestigious Spring Carnival as he admitted to failing to ride his Mt.
Bayliss was accused by the stewards for his actions on Guy Waterhouse and the Adrian Bott-trained All Too Scottish.
The three-year-old filly was traveling really well near the post on Thursday.
But All to Scottish was put on the line by Midori Beauty, who finished fast on the outside.
The stewards thought of Bellis’ actions in the final stages and decided to charge him.
They initially wanted a six-week ban, but halved it because of Bayliss’ guilty plea, his good record and missing feature meetings.
A statement read: “Rider R Bellis pleaded guilty to a charge under AR 131(b) in which he failed to ride his mount until the end of the race, which was placed second, a small head beaten.
“R. Bellis’s license to ride in the race was suspended for a period of time for comment on Sunday, October 17 and expires on Sunday, November 7.”
Bayliss has since appealed the length of the ban – but the punters thought it was wrong to punish him in the first place.
One said on Twitter, “Wow, this doesn’t deserve a suspension.”
Another wrote: “Just watched the replay and thought… what’s wrong with that?”
One posted: “I own that horse and @Reganbayliss couldn’t do more I thought it was a great ride.”
Another said: “I think it’s a tough call on Regan Bayliss, I think whatever he does on his horse, he was always going to get beaten up, the horse was at full speed and in the final stages no one Couldn’t go faster.”
One punter wrote: “It’s a suspension joke. There are worse rides that go unnoticed. Complete disgrace.”
While a fellow racing fan said: “It’s a very stiff suspension judging by the footage.”
The easing of Bayliss’ ban means he is free to ride The Inferno in next Saturday’s Everest – the richest turf race in the world for £8 million.
