Woodbine: Jockey Singh suspended 10 years


ETOBICOKE, Ontario - Jockey/exercise rider Sunny Singh has been suspended 10 years by the Ontario Racing Commission for possessing an electrical device.

Singh was alleged to have had the device in his jacket pocket in the jockeys’ room at Woodbine on Nov. 8, when he was scheduled to ride one horse that he was taken off of late on the card.

As of Friday, Singh had yet to appeal the ban, which denies him access privileges to all Ontario racetracks during the period of the suspension, which began Dec. 11.

Singh, 32, has 263 career wins from 3,079 mounts. He is 0 for 23 at the current Woodbine meet.
