Protecting the Integrity & Reputation of Irish Horseracing

Dundalk 16th February 2018

029B At The Races M'dn

The Stewards enquired into possible interference in the straight involving Max Velocity, ridden by R.P. Cleary, placed second and Port Lions, ridden by P.J. Smullen, placed first where it appeared Max Velocity suffered interference. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that Port Lions had improved his finishing position in relation to Max Velocity as a result of this interference, and so they reversed the Judge's placings of the first and second placed horses and took no further action.

The amended result now reads:
1st Max Velocity
2nd Port Lions
=3rd Chaparral Dream
=3rd Easkey Lad
5th Boatrace
6th Tea Roses

Mr. S. Collins and Mr. J. Osborne, Acting Stewards, absented themselves from this enquiry.
