086G Racing Again At Limerick 17th May H'cap

The Stewards enquired into an incident in the closing stages involving Temasek Star, ridden by S. Foley, Love The Feeling, ridden by T.P. Madden, and Breenainthemycra, ridden by P.J. Smullen, where it appeared Love The Feeling received interference from the inside, ran short of room and was forced to check. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards found P.J. Smullen in breach of Rule 214 by riding carelessly and having taken his record into account suspended him for two race days.

Mr W. McCreery, trainer, accompanied apprentice T.P. Madden at this enquiry.
