Police are investigating an altercation at Southwell racecourse in which jump jockey Aidan Coleman was allegedly punched after members of the public broke into the changing room.
Coleman is said to have suffered minor injuries in the incident, which took place after the last race of the day.
Nottinghamshire Police said four people were arrested.
Two men and one woman were arrested on suspicion of assault and damage, and another woman for obstructing police.
Meanwhile, a Southwell stewards’ report stated that the 27-year-old Coleman, fellow jockeys Adam Pogson and Tom Scudamore, and officials had been interviewed. The information gathered will be forwarded to the British Horseracing Authority.
Coleman, who has won 54 races in Britain this season, partnered Mon Mome in the Grand National on three occasions, but
passed up the ride in 2009
when the 100-1 outsider won the race.
