Protecting the Integrity & Reputation of Irish Horseracing

Integrity Portal

Curragh 1st July 2018

The Stewards fined the following trainer in respect of their non-runner:-

J. S. Bolger, trainer of Panstarr (GB) (Change in Going) - €200.

166B Westgrove Hotel H'cap

The Stewards enquired into possible interference in the final furlong and a half involving Beach Bar, ridden by W.M. Lordan, unplaced, War Hero, ridden by S.P. Davis, unplaced, Ice Cold In Alex, ridden by S. Foley, placed sixth, Korbous, ridden by Y. Nonaka, unplaced, Kailee, ridden by C.D. Hayes, placed second and Red Avenger (USA), ridden by R.P. Cleary, placed first, where it appeared that Kailee and Ice Cold in Alex were tight for room. 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 any interference caused did not effect the Judge's placings, and they therefore made no alteration. The Stewards did, however, consider C.D. Hayes to be in breach of Rule 214, in that he had ridden carelessly and having considered his particularly good record in this regard, suspended him for 1 raceday.

S.P. Davis, rider of War Hero trained by P.J.Prendergast, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount received a bump in the closing stages and became unbalanced.

S. Foley, rider of Ice Cold In Alex trained by K.J. Condon, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount was tight for room.

C.D. Hayes, rider of Kailee trained by W.T. Farrell, reported to the Clerk of Scales that his mount was badly hampered in the closing stages.
