Top jockey charged by stewards after allegedly betting through partner’s account

One of Australia’s top jockeys, Ben Melham, has been charged by Racing Victoria stewards for allegedly making tens of thousands of dollars in bets through his partner’s account.

Melham is facing seven charges after allegedly organising wagers during a six-month period last year on horses he was riding and in races in which he was not competing.
