Luke Currie has been one of three riders suspended for careless riding at Caulfield.

Currie was suspended for 11 meetings after pleading guilty to careless riding aboard Oohood for an incident in Saturday’s Group Three Blue Diamond Preview for fillies.

Oohood was an eye-catching runner in the race, finishing third and she has firmed to the second line of betting at $8 for next month’s Group One Blue Diamond Stakes.

Currie’s suspension is due to start after Tuesday’s Ballarat meeting.

Apprentice Jordan Turner and jockey Ryan Maloney were suspended for careless riding in separate incidents in the final race of the day.

Turner copped an 11-meeting ban which is due to start after Sunday while Maloney was outed for eight meetings.
