New date for Dwyer hearingHeadlines
Martin Dwyer

An inquiry into Martin Dwyer's third-place finish aboard the favourite for a race at Mahalaxmi racecourse in Mumbai has been put back to March 17.

Dwyer finished a narrow third on market leader Ice Age in the final race last Sunday, prompting an angry response from racegoers.

A video of the race shows Ice Age appearing to drift towards the rail in the closing stages, bumping the eventual runner-up and causing the jockey to snatch up his mount.

The Royal Western India Turf Club stewards called an inquiry and announced the horse was to be deemed a non-starter, with all bets refunded.

The RWITC has since confirmed Dwyer will be the subject of a further hearing, which was originally scheduled for this Sunday.

He issued a statement through the Professional Jockeys Association on Friday.

Dwyer said: "Whilst I categorically deny the allegation made against me by the stewards of the Royal West India Turf Club that I did not allow Ice Age to race on her merits, I welcome the decision of director general of police Raj Khilnani to involve himself in proceedings and that he will be in attendance at the hearing.

"I am confident that I will be exonerated of any wrongdoing, due to the simple fact that I am entirely innocent of the allegations as is clearly made evident by the video of the race alone."

Explaining the initial disqualification, RWITC chairman Khushroo Dhunjibhoy told The Times of India: "The horse was disqualified because on preliminary inquiry, it appeared that the horse was not run fairly.

"Inquiry against the concerned jockey has been instituted."
