Protecting the Integrity & Reputation of Irish Horseracing

Leopardstown 7th August 2014

209C Leopardstown Summer Membership H'cap

The Stewards enquired into an incident soon after the start of this race involving Waterloo Sunrise, ridden by Gearoid Patrick Brouder, unplaced, Blackball (USA), ridden by J.P. O'Brien, unplaced, Further Afield (GB), ridden by G.F. Carroll, unplaced and Dangerous Flower (USA), ridden by S. Corby, unplaced, where it appeared that Waterloo Sunrise came across from an outside draw and tightened the horses inside him. 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 G.P. Brouder had caused interference by riding carelessly and consequently suspended him for 1 raceday having taken his clean previous record into consideration. Richard Brabazon, trainer, accompanied S. Corby at this enquiry.

The Stewards requested a report from Denis Gerard Hogan, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Amazing Star, placed first, as compared with its recent form. Anne Grace, authorised representative of Denis Gerard Hogan reported that Amazing Star was slowly away at Limerick, 20th June, when apprentice ridden, then refused to race at Killarney, 14th July, when apprentice ridden again. The most recent run at Leopardstown, 24th July, was on good to firm ground where the runners went very steady. Today the ease in the ground, the strong gallop and the one mile trip were all contributing factors to the success. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.

209D 'Johnny Marr' H'cap

The Stewards requested a report from T.G.McCourt, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Local Flier (GB), placed first, as compared with its recent run. The trainer reported that the race conditions which confined this contest to the same age horses and the application of a visor to replace the previously worn cheek pieces combined to contribute to this success. Having considered the evidence the Stewards noted the content of the report.
