Protecting the Integrity & Reputation of Irish Horseracing

Roscommon 9th May 2016

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

Emmet Michael Butterly, trainer of Jeremys Joy (Off feed) - €200

106A Irish Stallion Farms EBF(C&G)Med Auc Mdn

The Stewards interviewed G.F. Carroll, rider of Bob Moore, trained by Adrian Paul Keatley, concerning his riding in the final furlong where he was beaten half a length for fifth place. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned who stated that he had ridden a strong race on an animal that was running over a longer trip and his mount emptied at the furlong marker with his stride shortening closer to the finish. In his opinion the fifth placed horse "Easy Pass (Ire)" passed his own mount and went away from him in the last few strides. Having viewed the recording and considered the evidence, the Stewards gave G.F. Carroll the benefit of the doubt and took no further action but did remind him to ride more pronounced and bear in mind that prize money has been extended to further placings this season.

The Turf Club Veterinary Officer examined Bob Moore, trained by Adrian Paul Keatley, at the request of the Stewards and reported the animal to be post race normal.
