Dereks/John Halley Referral (Placings)

The Referrals Committee, Mr. P.J.A. O’Connor (in the Chair), Mr. Charles C. Cunningham and Mr. C.E. O’Sullivan met in the Turf Club Offices, The Curragh, Co. Kildare to consider an objection from Mr. Denis Egan, Keeper of the Matchbook to the 3rd placing gained by Dereks in the Kilbeggan I.N.H. Flat Race at Kilbeggan on 7th September 2007 on the basis that Dereks was not qualified to run in the race as the Committee had previously found that his owner Mr. John Halley (as agent for the Strand Inn Syndicate) was on the forfeit list as published in the Irish Racing Calendar on 30th August 2007.

Having considered the objection, the Committee disqualified Dereks from 3rd place in the race listed below and ordered the records to be updated accordingly.

The placings now read:

September 7th 2007 – Kilbeggan – Kilbeggan I.N.H. Flat Race

1st  – Maibet
2nd – The Grey Friend (GB)
3rd  – Full Of Trix
4th –  Catalini Flyer

The case was presented by Mr. Brian Price, Solicitor, Wilkinson & Price Solicitors, Naas, Co. Kildare.
