Godolphin will support its retained Kiwi star jockey James McDonald, who has stood himself down after he was charged with a betting offence in relation to the debut win of Astern.

"Godolphin acknowledges the Stewards' report that Racing NSW is investigating James McDonald for an infringement of the rules of racing," a Godolphin statement said
"His decision to step down from riding, pending the outcome of the investigation, is the right one. We will continue to support him throughout this process."
