Four jockeys have been suspended from racing for up to twelve years following a corruption investigation by the British Horse Racing Authority.

Paul Doe and Greg Fairley were found guilty of the most serious breach of deliberately ensuring horses did not run on their merits and received 12-year bans.

Four jockeys were among eleven people, including two owners, who were found guilty of charges relating to ten races between January and August 2009.
