Former Kiwi champion back in the saddle today

6:51 pm on 15 December 2011

The former champion New Zealand jockey Lisa Cropp will return to race riding today after the latest glitch in her career.

Melbourne-based Cropp's one month ban for using a banned substance has been suspended for 12 months, and now that an elective sample she provided a week ago has been cleared, she's free to ride again.

She's booked for two rides at today's country meeting in Kyneton, Victoria.
