Stewards, jockeys to meet over Ride Guide

Stewards and jockeys will meet to discuss the controversial Ride Guide, an online view from riders of their mounts ahead of race meetings.

Racing NSW chief steward Marc Van Gestel said he would be talking to the media company behind the initiative on Tuesday along with jockeys including Melbourne’s Chris Symons.

Van Gestel said his panel had concerns the program was only available on the website of corporate bookmaker Ladbrokes.

“It needs to be thrashed out with the jockeys and the media company Unscriptd,” Van Gestel said.

Symons said last week the deal with Ladbrokes was negotiated by Unscriptd, not the riders.

Racing Victoria chief steward Terry Bailey said he was happy with the concept but concerned with how it was being distributed and what payment was involved.
