France Galop Press Release : Pierre-Charles Boudot – Friday 14 May

On Friday, 14 May, 2021, Pierre-Charles BOUDOT and Pierre BAZIRE, who have respectively been indicted by an investigating magistrate of the Senlis Judicial Court for rape and failure to report a crime, presented their observations to the France Galop stewards.

Even though the two jockeys remain presumed innocent, the current criminal proceedings, the seriousness of the allegations and the fact of bringing racing into disrepute, as well as regarding the implications to the betting market, the stewards have, as a precautionary measure, suspended the said jockey’s licence for a duration of three months in application of article 216 of the Racing Code.

These measures may be lifted or renewed depending on the elements that will be brought to the attention of the France Galop stewards.
