Protecting the Integrity & Reputation of Irish Horseracing

Sligo 6th August 2015

208C Leo McMorrow Memorial H'cap H'dle

The Stewards enquired into possible interference after the last hurdle involving He Is Top Class, ridden by J.W. Kennedy, placed first and Whisky Galore (GB), ridden by M.A. Enright, placed second, where it appeared that Whisky Galore (GB) ran short of room when challenging on the inside. Evidence was heard from the riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the race and considered the evidence, the Stewards were satisfied that He Is Top Class had improved his placing by causing interference to Whisky Galore (GB) and consequently ordered that the placings' be reversed with the result now to read: 1st Whisky Galore (GB) 2nd He Is Top Class. Furthermore, the Stewards were satisfied that J.W. Kennedy was in breach of Rule 214 by riding carelessly and suspended him for 2 racedays having taken his clean previous record into consideration. Acting Stewards Derek Pugh and Ray McSharry absented themselves from the decisions made at both enquiries.
