A lawyer for six-time British champion jockey Kieren Fallon told a London court Oct. 10 the suggestion Fallon deliberately tried to lose races was absurd. On the third day of trial, John Kelsey-Fry described his client as "a man driven by the desire to win." Prosecutors allege the jockey won five of the 17 races he was supposed to lose and cost the betting syndicate £338,000.
Irish jockey Kieran Fallon has served a six-month suspension for a cocaine positive but will only be allowed to ride outside of Great Britain until the case brought against him by London police goes to trial Sept. 24.
