Protecting the Integrity & Reputation of Irish Horseracing

Tramore 8th October 2015

276A M'dn H'dle

The Stewards enquired into possible interference in the closing stages involving Vermout Fougeray (FR), ridden by P. Townend, placed second and Conduct Yourself, ridden by B. Hayes, placed first, where it appeared Conduct Yourself ran short off room and struck the running rail. 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 P. Townend was in breach of Rule 214 in that he had ridden dangerously and therefore disqualified Vermont Fougeray (FR) from second place. Furthermore, the Stewards suspended P. Townend from riding for ten race days and ordered that he forfeit his riding fee.
Amended result;
First Conduct Yourself.
Second Mouskersize.
Third Brog Deas Nua (USA).
Forth Way Wild West.

P. Townend, rider of Vermout Fougeray (FR) trained by Joseph Dullea, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount hung left and jumped left throughout.

P.T. Enright, rider of Line View trained by James Daniel Dullea, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount made a bad mistake at the second last.

276F Tramore Supporters Club H'cap S'chase

P.T. Enright, rider of Massinis Adventure trained by Robert Tyner, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount made bad mistakes throughout and was pulled up thereafter.

The Stewards requested a report from Denis Gerard Hogan, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Eiri Na Casca, placed first, as compared with its recent form. Anne Grace, authorised representative for the trainer, reported her surprise at the win and felt that the first time application of cheek pieces and a step up in trip may, have brought about the improvement in form. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards noted the content of the report.

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Den Then, at the request of trainer, J.T.R.Dreaper, and reported the animal to be post race normal.
