Mr. Bernard Cullinane  /  “North Lodge (GER)”  Referral

Curragh 2nd September, 2007.

The Referrals Committee, Mr. E. Flannery (in the Chair), Mr. P.J.A. O’Connor and Mr. Charles C. Cunningham, met in the Turf Club Offices, The Curragh, Co. Kildare, on Thursday 6th March, 2008, to consider an objection from Mr. Denis Egan, Keeper of the Match Book, to the eighth placing gained by “North Lodge (GER)” in the Free to Speak Apprentice Handicap at the Curragh on 2nd September, 2007, on the basis that “North Lodge (GER)” was not qualified to run in the race as the Committee had previously found that his owner, Mr. Bernard Cullinane, (as Agent for the Net Busters Syndicate) was on the Forfeit List as published in the Irish Racing Calendar of 30th August, 2007. 

Having considered the objection the Committee disqualified “North Lodge (GER)” from eighth place in the Free to Speak Apprentice Handicap at the Curragh on 2nd September, 2007, and ordered that the records be amended accordingly.


The case was presented to the Committee by Mr. Brian Price, Wilkinson & Price Solicitors, Naas, Co. Kildare.
