Medical Review Panel allows appeal by leading female jockey
The Medical Review Panel of the British Horseracing Authority yesterday declared Hayley Turner, the well-known female jockey, fit to ride.
Ms Turner’s licence application had been turned down on health grounds arising out of a fall at Newmarket in March of this year. The Panel allowed Ms Turner’s appeal on 9 July 2009 and she can make an immediate return to race riding.
5RB‘s Stephen Bate sat as one of the 3 members of the Panel, chaired by Professor David Silk.
