Racing Victoria stewards have adjourned an inquiry into a alleged incident between a jockey and a trainer at Flemington.

Baster rode for the final time at the Melbourne Cup carnival which finished on Saturday after a career spanning more than 28 years.

Jockey James McDonald, who rode Nature Strip to win the Group One Darley Sprint Classic, was fined $1500 on a whip breach after winning on Mandela Effect in the Cup Week Radio Trophy.
