Hollie Doyle admits 'huge mistake' is set to rule her out of Breeders' Cup | The Sun
HOLLIE DOYLE admits her 'huge mistake' could rule her out of her key ride aboard Bradsell in the Breeders' Cup.
The superstar jockey picked up a seven-day careless riding ban while aboard Rose Light at Kempton on Monday night.
Doyle was earlier this month given a suspended one-month ban after testing positive for a banned substance.
If the careless riding ban is upheld then it means she will miss the world championships of racing at Santa Anita on November 3/4.
But she intends to appeal the ruling – praying that leaves the door open to riding Archie Watson's star sprinter in the States.
Doyle told the Racing Post: "I'm going to try to appeal next Thursday with the representation of Rory Mac Neice.
"I made a huge mistake and I know that. Visually it didn't look great but what I did was minimal."
If the ban sticks then it will run from October 30 to December 6 – the day before Doyle rides Future History in the Melbourne Cup.
