NHA Finding: Stipes Erred

Inquiry – Race 2 – Flamingo Park Racecourse – 07 February 2011

The National Horseracing Authority confirms that at an Inquiry, chaired by Advocate G. Hoffman, held on 14 February 2011, the Board found that the Stipendiary Stewards had failed in their duty by not calling for either a review and/or an objection into an incident involving BETTY BURKE and CYBER LADY at approximately the 200m mark in Race 2 at Flamingo Park Racecourse on 07 February 2011.

The Inquiry Board was of the view that, had there been an objection, it would have been upheld. The members of the Stipendiary Board have acknowledged their error in judgement with regard to this incident. The Inquiry Board recommended to Management that disciplinary action be taken against the relevant Stipendiary Stewards.

The National Horseracing Authority acknowledges that the Stipendiary Stewards failed in their duties and apologises to the public for the incorrect decision which was made.

The recommendation of the Inquiry Board has been noted and disciplinary action will be taken against these Stipendiary Stewards.
