Sean Levey was allowed back to driving after a saliva test failed, resulting in Levey’s engine stall, which later failed to find any signs of any banned substances.
On Wednesday last week, Levey was removed from an intended ride at Sandown, but no official statement appeared on the British Riding Authority (BHA) manager’s report.
The BHA later confirmed the next day that Levey was unable to ride for “medical reasons”.
His enforcement break meant Levey missed out on the final night of the Racing League, after leading the riders’ championship with 59 points and a hot favorite to win £20,000 in prize money. .
In Levey’s absence, Saffie Osborne won a treble of 6,500 to surpass Levey’s total and claim the prize.
Speaking to Sky Sports Racing on Tuesday, Levey Racing League manager Matt Chapman said: “I spoke to Sean at the time and he said, ‘I didn’t do anything wrong.
“The authorities clearly need to take a different look at this because we can’t just let people get banned for no reason – especially when there’s a large sum of money to take. I totally do. guts about that.
“In this case, you have to question whether Levey should have refused immediately because then it shows that he shouldn’t be.
“This is clearly wrong and someone, somewhere is going to have to rethink. You can’t just ban people and then say you’re fine for a few days. That’s not the way to run sports. “
Sky Sports Racing has contacted the BHA for comment.
Levey is booked for three rides at Haydock on Friday.
