D.J. Barry (Trainer) Referral - Stable Inspection 29th November 2018

The Referrals Committee, Mr. Justice Raymond Groarke (in the chair), Mr. Anthony Byrne and Mr. N.B. Wachman convened via Zoom on Tuesday, 28th January, to consider whether Derek Barry (Trainer) was in breach of any rules as a result of a stable inspection carried out at his Training Establishment on 29thNovember 2018 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).

At the Referral Hearing, the committee heard evidence from Mr. Barry.

In his evidence, Mr. Barry accepted that his Medicines Register was blank at the time of the inspection. He stated that no horses in training were receiving any medicines at the time but he was unaware that worm doses had to be included and apologised for that error.

Having considered the evidence, the panel were satisfied that Mr. Barry 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
