S. Slevin (Trainer) Stable Inspection 25th July 2022 – Referral

The Referrals Committee, Mr. Peter Reynolds (in the chair), Mr. Noel McCaffrey and Mr. John Murphy, convened in the Offices of the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board on Thursday 11th May 2022, to consider whether Mr. Shay Slevin (Trainer) was in breach of any rules of racing arising from a Stable Inspection carried out at his Training Establishment on 25th  July 2022 by IHRB officials.

On the day, the inspection team noted that Mr. Slevin’s current Veterinary Medicines Register was not available for inspection as required under Rule 148(iii)(b).

In his evidence, Mr. Slevin accepted that he was in breach of Rule 148(iii)(b) and explained that at the time of the inspection, his Veterinary Medicines Register was in his wife’s car and that she was off the premises at the time.

Having considered the evidence, the Referrals Committee found Mr. Slevin in breach of Rule 148(iii)(b) and having considered his record in this regard imposed a fine of €500.

The case was presented by Mr. Michael Daly, IHRB Regulatory Legal Advisor.
