Llewellyn hit by heavy fine
Carl Llewellyn has been fined £1,500 by the British Horseracing Authority for "conduct prejudicial to horse racing".
The former rider, who is now assistant trainer to Nigel Twiston-Davies, is alleged to have made a racial comment at a Cheltenham Festival preview evening at the Hollow Bottom pub, Gloucestershire.
Llewellyn faced a penalty ranging from a £1,000 fine to a three-year ban.
He admitted to a breach of the rules at a BHA hearing on Thursday morning.
