Liam Kenny – “That Beats Banaher (GB)” Referral
Fairyhouse – 29th January 2011

The Referrals Committee, Sean Barry (in the Chair), N.B. Wachman and Mrs. T.K. Cooper met in the Turf Club, The Curragh, Co. Kildare on 4th February 2011 to consider the referral of Liam Kenny trainer of “That’s Beats Banaher (GB)”, when following the running of the New Tote Daily Double Beginners Chase at Fairyhouse on 29th January 2011, he was referred for a possible breach of Rule 213 as the Stewards were of the opinion that he had failed to report something that may have affected the horse on his previous run.

Evidence was heard from Noel O’Brien, Senior I.N.H.S. Handicapper and Liam Kenny.  In his evidence Mr. Kenny admitted the offence.

Having considered the evidence the Committee imposed a fine of €400 on Liam Kenny.

The case was presented by Denis Egan, Chief Executive of the Turf Club.  Liam Kenny was represented by Andrew Coonan, Coonan Cawley Solicitors, Naas, Co. Kildare.
