John O. Clifford (Trainer) Referral - Stable Inspection 18th August 2021

The Referrals Committee, Mr. Peter M. Allen (in the chair), Mr. Laurence McFerran and Mr. Noel McCaffrey convened via Zoom on Friday, 18th February, to consider whether John Clifford (Trainer) was in breach of any rules as a result of a stable inspection carried out at his Training Establishment on 18th August 2021 by Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board officials.

On the day, the inspection team observed that the Medicines Register was not kept up to date under Rule 148(iii).

Mr. Clifford made no representations for the Referrals Committee hearing.

Having considered the evidence of the IHRB, the panel were satisfied that Mr. Clifford was in breach of Rule 148(iii) in that he had failed to keep his Medicines Register up to date. Having considered his record in this regard the panel fined him €250.

The case was presented by Mr. Michael Daly, IHRB Regulatory Legal Advisor
