Jockeys are set to face stiffer penalties for manoeuvres that might impact on the safety or fairness of a race by causing interference. Belgium Soccer Jerseys . The change is part of moves to take effect from May 23 with the intention of providing a greater deterrent to riders, and comes as the result of British Horseracing Authority consultation with the Professional Jockeys Association, as well as the National Trainers Federation and Racehorse Owners Association.Under the new structure, Andrea Atzenis three-day ban incurred for careless riding in a controversial renewal of last years St Leger at Doncaster would now carry a ban of seven to eight days for improper riding. The BHA said there was a common feeling among those consulted that the rules and penalty structures should be reviewed during what is a usual annual process, following a series of offences in high-profile races in 2015.Instances where a rider manoeuvres during a race, when he knows or ought reasonably to have known, that by doing so interference would occur, are to be categorised as improper rather than careless and are set to carry a higher penalty of up to 21 days, with a minimum of four days for interference-related offences.In contrast, the impact of bans for the most minor offences will be reduced.One-day suspensions are to be removed from the bottom of the penalty range for careless riding in order that minor offences which would previously have incurred a one-day suspension will now receive a caution.The top end of the penalty range for careless riding is to be increased from nine days to 14 days.However, penalties for whip-related offences are to remain unchanged.

We are grateful to the PJA for their constructive participation in this project.The alteration to the penalty range for careless riding serves to, at the top end, provide a greater disincentive to ride in a careless manner, and at the same time, by dropping one day suspensions, ensure that riders are not incurring unwarranted suspensions for minor offences.Stier added: We are aware that niggly one-day offences may seem a minor penalty, but they do have an impact on jockeys as it causes them to lose potential earnings for a day.We have agreed with the PJA that it is appropriate to commence applying suspensions for careless riding at a level of offence which has previously incurred a two-day suspension.Therefore offences which would have incurred a one-day suspension will now instead attract a caution.On the subject of the whip, Stier said: We remain satisfied overall with the way in which British riders are adhering to the whip rules. We are encouraged by the ongoing decrease in the number of whip offences.The increased number of offences in Group or Grade One races in 2015 did prompt us to undertake a more detailed analysis of the data to see whether a trend was developing. That analysis revealed no evidence to support the development of such a trend.We do not see a need for further review of the penalties for whip offences as long as the downward trend in breaches continues, including those in high-value races.The British jockeys at Cheltenham recently showed that it is possible to ride within the rules in valuable races. We expect riders to continue such an approach throughout the remainder of the jump season and into the Flat season.

SPREAD — New England 7-4, Green Bay 5-5-1SERIES RECORD — Tied 5-5.PHOENIX -- There were too many players close behind and too many low scores to be had for Lydia Ko to feel at ease at the top of the JTBC Founders Cup leaderboard. That wont change the 16-year-old New Zealanders approach Sunday at Desert Mountain. "Im just going to play my own game," Ko said. "If somebody goes crazy low like shooting 10 under, 9 under or whatever, its not something I can control." She shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday to reach 16-under 200. Jessica Korda and Mirim Lee were a stroke back, and a dozen players were within four shots on a course that gave up a 63 and two 64s in the third round. "Obviously, theres going to be some nerves," Ko said. "Of course, thats always there." Ko was 3 under on Wildfires Arnold Palmer-designed front nine Saturday after playing it in even par the first two days. She eagled the par-5 fifth after hitting a 5-wood to 7 feet. "I played much better on the front nine, so I was really happy with that," Ko said. Ko tapped in for birdie on the par-5 15th after missing an eagle try and took the outright lead with a 10-footer on the par-3 17th. Shes 13 under on the Nick Faldo-designed back nine, where the tournament will be decided. "You never know until the last hole, last putt," Ko said. Ko won the Canadian Womens Open as an amateur the last two years and took the Swinging Skirts World Ladies Masters in December in Thailand in her second start as a professional. She has five victories in pro events, also winning in Australia and New Zealand. "It would be pretty special and especially at the Founders Cup," Ko said. "Without the founders, there would be no LPGA. This has been my dream tour." Ko will play alongside Korda. They also played together in the first two rounds. "Its always cool to play with her," Ko said. Korda, the winner in the season-opening event in the Bahamas, birdied the final two holes for her second bogey-free 66 in a row. "I look at her like a little sister," Korda said about Ko. "Shes a great girl." Lee, the leader after each of the first two rounds, bogeyed the 15th and shot 70. Shes making her third start on the LPPGA Tour after winning three times on the Korean LPGA. Nacer Chadli Jersey. Sun Young Yoo, the 2012 Kraft Nabisco winner, was 14 under after a 68. Michelle Wie had a 67 to join Azahara Munoz, So Yeon Ryu, Amy Yang and Chella Choi at 13 under. "I couldnt get anything to the hole, but scrambled and shot 5 under," Wie said. "Im really happy to be in the position that I am. Im really excited for tomorrow." Munoz, coming off a playoff loss to Paula Creamer three weeks ago in Singapore, shot 64 -- one of 19 rounds of 67 or better in the 74-player field Saturday. Yang had a 67, and Ryu and Choi shot 68. Choi holed out from the fairway for eagle on the par-4 18th. Creamer had a 64 to match defending champion Stacy Lewis and Morgan Pressel at 12 under. Creamer played the first 15 holes in 9 under, then bogeyed the short par-4 16 after driving into a bunker. "I have hit the ball great this week," Creamer said. "Ive given myself so many opportunities, its kind of ridiculous. I just didnt putt my best the last two days." In Singapore, she holed a 75-foot eagle putt to beat Munoz on the second extra hole. Lewis and Pressel, 9 under after 11 holes Thursday, shot 67. "Pretty disappointing," Lewis said. "I left a ton of shots out there today. The greens were a bit softer and I just didnt quite adjust to it. Speed was a little bit different." Scottsdale resident Cristie Kerr matched the course record with a 63 to reach 11 under, finishing an hour before the leaders teed off. "I saw Cristie shot 9 under and Paula was 8 and I was like, Wow! Thats serious scoring," Korda said. "But the greens are a little bit bouncier in the afternoon and you can kind of see where people have walked." Kerr, playing a new set of irons this week, had an eagle, eight birdies and a three-putt bogey. "Im glad that I had the courage to switch because Im just so much more consistent now," Kerr said.
