The British Horseracing Authority’s disciplinary panel will hold an inquiry on Thursday to consider whether or not comments made by former jockey Carl Llewellyn were prejudicial to the good reputation of horseracing in Great Britain.
The hearing was originally scheduled to take place last Thursday but was postponed at the request of Llewellyn’s representatives.
Llewellyn, business partner of Guiting Power trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies, is alleged to have made the comments at a Festival preview event at the Hollow Bottom pub.
If found guilty, Llewellyn could face a penalty ranging from a £1,000 fine to a three-year ban.
The police will take no action against Llewellyn over the comments, which the 48-year-old has said he regretted making.
“I’ve learned from it and know I need to be careful what I say around others,” said Llewellyn.
“What I considered to be something leading on from what someone else had said, and that wasn’t meant to be taken seriously, upset some people and I regret what I said."
