Jockeys charged with lying to stewards about Mark Zahra’s presence on Airbnb

Kah, Melham, Brown and Gaudray were each fined more than $5,000 by the police, as well as two non-racing people who attended.

Kah lost the prized Memsie Stakes ride to eventual winner Behemoth on Saturday, while Zahra would ride champion mare Verry Elleegant in the Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup, but was replaced by connections on Sunday with Damian Lane.

However, they will be able to ride track work and in jump-outs and trials once their 14-day stand-down period ends.
