TALENTED Wagga apprentice Jason Collins will appeal the severity of his latest suspension.
Collins has been granted a stay of proceedings while an appeal date is set for a suspension resulting from Wagga trackwork.
Collins was found guilty of two charges of directing improper and or threatening comments to another rider at trackwork on September 1.
Stewards found Collins guilty of both charges and handed down two one-month suspensions.
They are to be served concurrently, meaning he will miss just one month, pending his appeal.
Collins was then again in trouble at Queanbeyan on Monday when he was fined $400 for directing improper language at a club official.
It follows a six-week suspension in July for giving false and misleading evidence to stewards.
There is no questioning Collins’ ability and was Southern District’s leading apprentice last season in his first year back in the saddle.
