Protecting the Integrity & Reputation of Irish Horseracing

Killarney 17th July 2014

The Stewards authorised the following substitutions of riders at this meeting:

D.E. Mullins replaced A.P. Heskin on Long House Saint, trained by Michael P. Hourigan (Race 6)(Injured)

182B Killarney Grand Live Music Venue H'cap

The Stewards requested a report from T.Hogan, trainer as to the apparent improvement in form of Elusive Prince (GB), placed first, as compared with its recent form. T. Hogan reported that this animal has been frustrating to train as he works well at home but has failed to transfer this to the racecourse. He felt that today he showed his true ability and the application of blinkers and the tongue strap could also have had a positive effect. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.

182C Europe Hotel & Resort H'cap

The Stewards enquired into an incident about two furlongs from the finish involving Absolutlyfantastic (GB), ridden by P. Townend, placed third, Birzali (FR), ridden by D.E. Mullins, unplaced, Coolfighter (GER), ridden by T.P. Madden, unplaced, Zemario, ridden by C.R. King, placed fifth and Ginger Genie, ridden by E.J. McNamara, unplaced. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Frank Berry accompanied both T.P. Madden and C.R. King at this enquiry. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards considered the incident to be accidental in nature and took no further action.
