Fallon Gets First Win Since 18-Month Ban Ends

Rides Our Kes to victory at Wolverhampton in England.

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.

Fallon is one of the most successful jockeys in British horse racing. He returned to riding Sept. 4.

Fallon was riding the 7-2 favorite and pulled in front over the last furlong to finish ahead of Annambo.

Fallon's ban had followed another long absence because of his involvement in a race-fixing trial. He had been cleared of the charges but was unable to ride in Britain while they were pending.
