A trip from Sydney to Melbourne for to ride one horse for his family at Sandown on Sunday cost jockey Blake Shin his third suspension in 24 hours.
Shinn, who copped two suspensions amounting to 27 meetings at Warwick Farm on Saturday, was suspended for another 14 meetings at Sandown after he rode first starter Magdalena’s Rose for his stepfather Lee Hope.
The Melbourne stewards found Shinn guilty of careless riding on Magdalena’s Rose who was having her first start and finished sixth of seven.
The suspensions, which begin on July 18, must be served cumulatively leaving Shinn on the sidelines until August 29.
While Shinn’s day could hardly have been worse, Dwayne Dunn dominated the flat racing program at Sandown with a treble of winners for five trainers.
Dunn scored on Crystal River in the Jim Conway Handicap and High Aims in the Alannah Hill Handicap for the David Feek and David Brideoake training partnership and on Brian’s Honour for Michael, Wayne, and John Hawkes in the Sportingbet Handicap.
