S.M. Gorey Referral

S.M. Gorey Referral
Failure to appear at an Appeal – 16th May 2011

The Referrals Committee Neville O’Byrne (in the chair), J.R. Craigie and Philip Caffrey met at the Turf Club, The Curragh, Co. Kildare on 9th June to consider the referral of S.M. Gorey, rider, following his failure to appear at an appeal at the Turf Club on 16th May 2011 having been requested to do so.

Evidence was heard from S.M. Gorey who accepted that he had been verbally notified about the Appeal.  He said that his correspondence address was care of his Master D.K. Weld but that he had not picked up his mail as he was away from work doing exams.  He said it was a genuine error and apologised for any inconvenience caused.

Having considered the evidence, the Committee accepted the explanation.

The case was presented by Denis Egan, Chief Executive of the Turf Club.
