Jockey Kieren Fallon has his first winner since returning from an 18-month ban for cocaine use. The 44-year-old six-time champion jockey was aboard Our Kes at Wolverhampton in England Sept. 5.
Investigations by racing authorities and officials at Wolverhampton Raceocurse in Britain have determined that the Polytrack artificial surface in use at the track is not responsible for five equine fatalities and a series of recent spills.
Britain has just three racecourses that stage dirt racing (known as all-weather), but one of them has a surface which "rides like a velvet carpet," according to jockey Martin Dwyer.
