Tom Hogan (Trainer) – Referral – Stable Inspection 21st March 2022

The Referrals Committee, Mr. Justice Tony Hunt (in the chair), Mr. Laurence McFerran and Mr. Nicholas B. Wachman convened in the Stewards Room, The Curragh Racecourse on Tuesday 11th April 2023, to consider whether Mr. Tom Hogan (Trainer) was in breach of any rules of racing arising from a Stable Inspection carried out at his Training Establishment on 21st March 2022 by IHRB officials.

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

In a written submission to the Referrals Committee, Mr. Hogan explained that other than worm doses, medicines were only administered on four occasions in the 12 months since the Stable Inspection on 21st  March 2022.

Having considered the evidence, the Referrals Committee found Mr. Hogan in breach of Rule 148(iii)(b) and having considered his record in this regard imposed a fine of €350.

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