Sunday 21 July 2019, 12:59pm

Queensland Cup-winning jockey Matt McGillivray has been suspended for 11 days for causing interference in the Listed race.

McGillivray, who rode the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace-trained Azuro to win Saturday's 3200m-race, was found guilty of causing interference to Dhoukan and Social Element at the 1500m.

He is already set to serve a suspension which ends on August 6 and the new suspension will start then.

The jockey claimed his first Group One win during the winter carnival aboard Winning Ways in the Queensland Oaks.
