Thomond O’Mara (Trainer) Appeal Withdrawn Down Royal – 27 May 2011

Thomond O’Mara has withdrawn his appeal against the decision of the Referrals Committee on 19th May 2014 when he was found in breach of Rule 272 as a result of his conduct at a previous hearing which was deemed to be prejudicial to the proper conduct of racing.

The Referrals Committee had imposed a disqualification on Mr. O’Mara holding a licence for a period of 2 years which they suspended for 2 years provided there are no further breaches of Rule 272 within that period. The operative date for any subsequent breach is not the date on which the breach is established, but the date of occurrence. If a breach occurs within the suspension period, the two year licence disqualification may be activated by any Referrals Committee, together with any penalties applicable to any subsequent breach. They also imposed a fine of €1,000 and ordered that he make a contribution of €4,000 to the Turf Club’s costs.
