Gordon Elliott / Eddie Dowling (GB) – Down Royal, 17th March 2009

The Referrals Committee Mrs. J.O. Onions (in the Chair), Ms. Meta Osborne and Mr. J.R. Craigie met in the Turf Club, The Curragh, Co. Kildare on 29th May to consider the referral of Gordon Elliott, Trainer of Eddie Dowling (GB), following the running of the Smirnoff Maiden Hurdle at Down Royal on 17th March 2009.  During an enquiry involving the running and riding of Eddie Dowling (GB), the Stewards found that Mr. Elliott had failed to report a matter at Fairyhouse on 4th March that may have affected the performance of his charge on that day and which only came to light during the enquiry.

Evidence was heard from Mr. Gordon Elliott, who admitted a breach of Rule 213.

Having considered the evidence, the Committee fined him €200 and imposed costs of €100.

The case was presented by Mr. Denis Egan, Chief Executive of the Irish Turf Club.
