The British Horseracing Regulatory Authority has suspended Fallon’s license there due to race-fixing allegations brought against him and fellow jockeys Fergal Lynch and Darren Williams. Fallon’s attorneys, however, are arguing there is no case for Fallon to answer. The attorneys appeared before Court 73 of the Royal Courts of Justice to argue that point June 5 in the hopes of clearing the jockey to ride in Great Britain before the scheduled trial date.
Fallon will resume his racing career outside of Great Britain June 7 at Tipperary, with a mount aboard Aidan O’Brien trainee The Bogberry in the Irish Stallions Farms European Breeders Fund Race, according to the BBC.
“I have never been more hungry and I am determined to repay Coolmore for standing by me,” Fallon told the BBC when the ban was imposed in December 2006. “Now I am going to be sharper than ever because I will appreciate and enjoy being able to ride those good horses all the more.”
