Jockey Martin Dwyer wins right to race in Britain

Jockey Martin Dwyer wins his appeal to the BHA not to reciprocate an eight-week riding ban imposed in India.

Martin Dwyer has won his appeal to the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) not to reciprocate a 56-day riding ban imposed in India.

Dwyer, 38, was initially banned for eight weeks for allegedly not allowing Ice Age to run on her merits at Mahalaxmi. He then had the ban extended to eight months before it was reduced back to eight weeks.

Bans are normally enforced worldwide but the BHA have taken Dwyer's side on the issue.

"I'm relieved it's all over. It's felt like I've served months of mental torture," said Dwyer.

Dwyer won the 2006 Derby at Epsom on Sir Percy.
