Keiren Fallon, the controversial jockey who was recently banned from riding in the Derby, is facing claims that he instead entered a village Gymkhana. Records confirm that an 11 year-old girl called Karen Fallon did indeed enter the event, but officials have since commented on her unusually stubbly chin and deep voice.
"With hindsight, perhaps we should have noticed that Karen was actually a 46 year-old Irish professional jockey", admitted Ms Smythe, who organises the annual event for children between 6 and 14. "I was a little surprised when 'Karen' arrived carrying a urine sample: we don't normally carry out doping tests at this level of competition. And she had massive hands".
Fallon set a new course record of 48 seconds in the semi-final, smashing last year's winning time of 3 minutes 12 seconds. But Rev. Carmichael, the vicar for the local church, was highly critical of the jockey's performance in the final, after they fell from their pony before even reaching the first jump. "I lost £5,000 betting on that cheating little cow", he explained.
