Protecting the Integrity & Reputation of Irish Horseracing

Curragh 24th May 2019

122C Extra.ie Spring Fillies H'cap

The Stewards requested a report from G.M.Lyons, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Viadera (GB), placed first, as compared with its recent form. G.M. Lyons reported that his charge's form was below par earlier in the season, and that today's ground and distance may have suited his charge better and brought about an improvement in form. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the explanation offered.

122E Kerrygold Gallinule Stakes

The Stewards enquired into the running and riding of Tinandali, ridden by C.D. Hayes, and trained by D. K. Weld. Evidence was heard from the rider and trainer concerned. C.D. Hayes, stated that his instructions were to sit in second or third position, and to get his mount to stay on as best he could. C.D. Hayes stated that his mount got worked up on the way to the start and also down at the stalls. In running, Tinandali never got into a good rhythm and when he tried to push on before the straight, the horse did not respond as he expected and he felt that there might be something wrong with him. In the opinion of C.D. Hayes it was best not to push on any further for the welfare of the horse. D. K. Weld, confirmed the instructions given to C.D. Hayes, adding that he was disappointed with the performance of his charge who ran too freely and was lugging left throughout. In addition, he felt that the fast ground may have been against his charge. The Stewards also received a report from the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer who stated that Tinandali was post race normal. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards noted the explanations offered.

122F K Club M'dn

The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer examined Gee Rex, trained by J.C.Hayden, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.

W.J. Lee, rider of Gee Rex trained by J.C.Hayden, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount didn't find for pressure.

122G Curragh Grand Opening H'cap

The Stewards interviewed K.J. Manning, rider of Latchet, concerning his use of the whip in the closing stages of this race. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards were of the opinion that K.J. Manning was in breach of Regulation 10.3 (g), in that he used his whip with excessive frequency and having considered his record in this regard suspended him for 1 raceday..

R.P. Whelan, rider of Grande Vadrouille (USA) trained by Michael William O'Meara, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount lost action in the last furlong.

R.P. Cleary, rider of Mulzamm trained by Denis Gerard Hogan, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount travelled keen.

122H Irish Stallion Farms EBF (Fillies) M'dn

The Stewards enquired into an incident in the closing stages of this race involving A New Dawn, ridden by W.M. Lordan, Royal Affair, ridden by S.M. Crosse, and Sunday Sweet, ridden by W.J. Lee, where it appeared that Royal Affair hung left causing interference. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned, in the presence of Joseph O' Brien, trainer, accompanying S.M. Crosse. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that any incident was accidental in nature and they therefore took no further action.
