Woodbine: Lynch suspended after confrontation


The Ontario Racing Commission, in a ruling released Friday, announced that trainer Brian Lynch has been suspended pending the outcome of an ORC investigation.

The ruling cited ORC regulations concerning professional conduct “which occurs outside of the business of horse racing but which brings the industry into disrepute.”

Lynch, who has a 45-horse stable here and recently won the Selene Stakes with Coffee Clique, was allegedly involved in a confrontation with jockey Sunny Singh in one of the parking lots here on May 24.
