Boudot, 28, a triple champion jockey in France and successful in the Arc 2019 on Waldgeist, was released on £ 43,000 bail but did not have his license withdrawn.
However, sources in France suggest he won’t team up with Aidan O’Brien’s favorite St. Mark’s Basilica in Sunday’s 2,000 French guineas at Longchamp.
The case concerns the allegations of a worker following a party in Cagnes sur Mer on the night of February 17.
The colleague of the weighing room Pierre Bazire was also indicted, having been taken into custody at the same time.
He faces a charge of failing to report a crime in connection with the same allegations, while an anonymous person has also been listed, along with Bazire, as a “witness intimidating a witness.”
“On February 19, a young worker denounced to the police in Cagnes-sur-Mer evidence suggesting that she had been raped on the night of February 17 and 18 by a jockey whose identity was later revealed by the press as being Pierre-Charles. Boudot, ”said prosecutor Jean-Baptiste Bladier about the alleged incident.
“The case was transferred by the Grasse court to that of Senlis because of the habitual residence of the accused and the plaintiffs, and an investigation into the rape allegation was opened by the Chantilly gendarmerie.
“After a very long series of interviews, investigators took Pierre-Charles Boudot and another jockey – identified in the press as Pierre Bazire – into custody on May 10.
“Today, May 12, the Senlis Criminal Court opened a hearing. The investigating magistrate made the following decisions: Pierre-Charles Boudot is indicted for rape and is also cited as a witness to intimidate a witness; Pierre Bazire is indicted for not having denounced a crime and is cited as a witness to intimidate a witness.
“The judge placed Pierre Bazire and Pierre-Charles Boudot under judicial control. At the request of the court, Pierre-Charles Boudot cannot appear in the Oise and must give a deposit of € 50,000 to the court.
Boudot, who broke a record 300 winners in a French Flat season, was charged after two days in police custody.
Last year he passed QIPCO Champions Day at Ascot – and he also celebrated victories at Royal Ascot and Newmarket during his career.
