“Are they serious?” she asked in a tweet after the ruling.

Racing authorities permit dual licence holders, who are registeredboth as a jockey and as a trainer, to ride in Victoria, South Australia and some parts of Queensland. But RacingNSW’s policy does not permit dual licence holders to ride, recognising them only as trainers.

“It is not about the individual, it is about integrity,” Racing NSW chief steward Marc VanGestelsaid. “We don’t issue that type of licence in NSW and it is policy that we do not recognise it as a riding licence.

“The reasons are stated in our policy but on race day there is a clear difference in responsibilities for jockeys and trainers and Racing NSW feels you do one job or another.

“Ajockey has to bein the jockeys’ room when the horse is being saddled and that holds some concern under the rules in our opinion.”

Payne will have her first runner as a trainer on Thursday at Cranbourne. where she has preparedQueen Of Zealand, which she will also will ride in the opening race.

Having become the first woman to ride a Melbourne Cup winner, when she won last year on100-1 outsider Prince Of Penzance, Payne has moved into a transition period of her career with the dual licence.

She considered retiring completely from riding after a horrorfall at Mildura in May.
