Protecting the Integrity & Reputation of Irish Horseracing

Limerick 20th June 2014

The Stewards fined the following trainer in respect of their non-runner:-

P.Meany, trainer of Arakan Lilly (failed to lodge passport on time, withdrawn by order of the Stewards) -€350.

148B Irish Stallion Farms EBF M'dn

The Stewards informed K.J. Condon, trainer that Dawn Singer, would have to be recertified before being declared to run from stalls again.

148C H'cap

The Stewards enquired into possible interference in the closing stages involving Knights Templar, ridden by D.M. Grant, placed second, Fleet Captain (GB), ridden by G.F. Carroll, placed fourth, Almadaa (GB), ridden by C.R. King, unplaced, Doonard Prince, ridden by R. Coakley, placed third and Avalanche (GB), ridden by P.J. Smullen, placed fifth, where it appeared interference had taken place. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned in the presence of J.F. O'Shea, trainer, representing David Wachman, trainer and master of C.R. King. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards made no alteration to the Judge's placings. They were, however, of the opinion that D. M. Grant was in breach of Rule 214 in that he had ridden carelessly and having taken his previous good record in this regard into account, they suspended him for two racedays.

148D Ballyduane Stud H'cap

The Stewards received a report from Ms. Nicola O'Connor, Turf Club Veterinary Officer, that Hatton Cross, the winner, trained by T.J. O' Mara, appeared as a colt on it's passport despite having been gelded. Evidence was heard from the trainer concerned who stated that in his opinion, he had returned the horse in training as a gelding and had conformed with the provisions of Rule 148 as is required. He stated that he did not notice that on the passport the horse was still described as a colt. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards referred the matter to the Chief Executive of the Turf Club for further investigation.
