Exciting Young Jockey Kieran Shoemark Suspended For Failed Drugs Test

Young promising jockey Kieran Shoemark, who has been tipped to one day go on and be British flat racing champion jockey after just being pipped for the Apprentice jockey title last year, could be facing some time on the sidelines after failing a drugs test.

The 22 year old Englishman has now been of the track since the end of November and was replaced on his three rides he had booked at Kempton last Thursday.

Currently the young rider has been placed under an interim suspension running from Friday 7th December to Friday 28th December under the BHA medical Protocols.

The failed drug test which is believed to have been the banned Class A substance of Cocaine comes just three months after Shoemark suffered a terrible injury when riding at Lingfield where he punctured his lung and broke six ribs.

Since coming back to action after that fall he has ridden for many different trainers but one of his long time backers is the esteemed trainer Roger Charlton and Shoemark went on to recently ride a winner in the Group 3 Bengough Stakes on board Projection at Ascot.

Kieran Shoemark's best moments in his career have come through Charlton giving the youngster a chance to ride and last year he also got a Royal Ascot winner for the trainer on board the Godolphin owned Atty Persse when he landed the King George V Stakes.

(Credit Racing Post) After this ride Charlton said: His agent [Tony Hind] says he's the next Ryan Moore."

The 22 year old finished second behind David Egan in the Apprentice Championship last year by just one win. Overall the jockey rode 65 winners throughout that year and picked up prize money of £709,022 for wins and places.
