017F Leopardstown H'cap S'chase

The Stewards interviewed Gordon Elliott, trainer, in relation to the late withdrawal of Shrapnel from this race due to the change in going. Evidence was heard from the trainer concerned who stated that after seeing the running of the previous chase, he felt the ground would be too testing for his horse today. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards, while accepting the ground had changed from declaration time, they did not accept the lateness of the withdrawal. Therefore they were of the opinion that Gordon Elliott was in breach of Rule 194 (iv) and imposed a fine of €200.

Mr. Thomas Breen, Trainee Steward, also attended this enquiry.

017G (Pro-Am) INH Flat Race

Mr I.D. Corrigan, rider of Back Off Blondie, trained by John W. Nicholson, reported to the Stewards' Secretaries that his saddle slipped in this race.
