Protecting the Integrity & Reputation of Irish Horseracing

Cork 6th January 2018

004B McCarthy Insurance Group M'dn H'dle

The Stewards enquired into possible interference between the last hurdle and the finishing line involving Galtymore, ridden by D.G. Hogan, placed first and Schindlers Ark (USA), ridden by J.W. Kennedy, placed second, where it appeared that interference may have occurred. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were satisfied that Galtymore had caused interference to Schindlers Ark (USA), and in doing so had improved his finishing position.
The Stewards therefore reversed the placings of the first two horses.

The result now reads;

First: Schindlers Ark (USA),
Second:Galtymore,
Third: Tildas Icon,
Fourth: Aldawayfornothing,
Fifth: Golan Cloud
Sixth: Bazarov.

Furthermore, the Stewards were of the opinion that D.G. Hogan was in breach of Rule 214 in that he had ridden carelessly, and having considered his record in this regard suspended him for 2 racedays.
