Scottish Grand National-winning jockey Richie McGrath has been cleared of corruption charges following a British Horseracing Authority disciplinary panel hearing.
McGrath faced allegations he passed on inside information used for betting purposes and that he had not ridden his mounts on their merits.
The British Horseracing Authority investigation covered 57 races between October 2009 and April 2012.
McGrath and former owner Mark Aspey went before a BHA disciplinary panel in March and both have now been cleared of all corruption charges.
The jockey has instead been found in breach of the lesser offence of giving a horse “a schooling run” aboard Rumble Of Thunder at Fakenham on January 1, 2011.
Schooling a horse in public carries an entry point penalty of a 14-day suspension, with a range of between 10 to 18 days, whereas McGrath could have been banned for 10 years if he had been found guilty of corruption.
A BHA statement said full reasons for the panel’s findings would be published in a few days.
Seven people were named when the BHA charges were revealed last September, including former trainer Kate Walton.
The charges against Walton and four other unlicensed individuals were dropped a week before they were due to face a disciplinary inquiry.
