The Stewards received a report from the Turf Club Starter, Mr. D. Cullen, that L.P. Dempsey, rider of King Bo Bo, S.A. Shortall, rider of Barbalicious, S.J. Crimin, rider of Millyrembrandt, K.C. Sexton, rider of Change The Rules, R.P. Treacy, rider of Cloudy Morning and M.J. Bolger, rider of Cloneen Dream had all disobeyed his instructions prior to the start of this race. Evidence was heard from the starter and riders concerned. Having viewed the recording of the incident and considered the evidence, the Stewards were of the opinion that the riders were in breach of Rule 208 (i)(a), in that they had all proceeded past the marker poles at the start before being instructed to do so by the starter. Having considered their respective good records, the Stewards suspended L.P. Dempsey, S.A. Shortall, S.J. Crimin, M.J. Bolger, and K C. Sexton for two race days. Furthermore, having considered R.P. Treacy's record, they suspended him for three race days.
