Blake Shinn failed to have a careless riding penalty reduced.

Blake Shinn’s bid to ride at the new season’s first feature meeting has failed with the jockey unsuccessful in having a careless riding penalty reduced.

Shinn was outed at Rosehill last Saturday for careless riding on Invincible Knight who finished second to Pelethronius in a 1500m-handicap.

The Racing NSW Appeal Panel on Friday agreed with stewards the seven-meeting suspension was warranted and Shinn will return on August 6, the day after the Group Two Missile Stakes meeting.

The jockey has recently returned from a successful stint in the United Stakes where he rode 11 winners in five weeks at Chicago’s Arlington Park.
