Jockeys Michelle Payne and Jake Bayliss will both spend some time on the sidelines after incurring the wrath of stewards at Flemington on Saturday.

Payne was given 11 meetings after pleading guilty to careless riding on Gingie in the second race.

Near the 1000m mark, Payne allowed her mount to shift in, tightening Lizard Island and causingMiss Clooney to dip and lose her running.

In assessing the penalty, stewards took into account Payne’s guilty plea, the fact she’ll miss Group 1 races in Adelaide and that the incident was in the mid-range.

Her suspension started on Sunday and she’ll be eligible to return on the second day of the Warrnambool carnival (Wednesday, May 6).

Bayliss copped seven meetings for excessive whip use on Boomwaa in the last.

The apprentice pleaded guilty to using his whip in a forehand manner 10 times prior to the 100m – five times more than permitted.

Given his poor record on the issue, stewards decided a fine wasn’t appropriate and opted for a suspension.

Bayliss will be eligible to return on Saturday, May 2.  (
