As expected, jockey Frankie Dettori has had his racing license suspended by officials of the medical committee of France Galop.
The three doctors on the medical panel have passed their findings along to France Galop's disciplinary committee, which will meet in two weeks to decide the severity of Dettori's suspension.
France Galop released the following statement on the matter:
“Following yesterday's examination of the file and after having duly notified the jockey Lanfranco Dettori of its decision, the Medical Committee has temporarily suspended the said jockey from riding in races in France, based on medical grounds. The France Galop stewards will be studying the file within the next fortnight before deciding what action will be taken in accordance with the Rules of Racing.”
