Stewards swoop on owner who backed and laid a horse in which he has an ownership interest...tut tut very norty.

https://www.racenet.com.au/news/owner-fined-for-laying-his-horse-20191218

During evidence stewards revealed the owner won $30 laying the horse at Hawkesbury and lost $20 when winning at Mudgee.


I thought it would have been in the thousands of dollars?

Why would you even bother making these bets when the return from any prizemoney far exceeds these amounts? When the owner "won" $30 on Nov 7th at Hawkesbury the horse ran a close 2nd earning $6,000 in prizemoney.

Judgment Summary
Supreme Court
New South Wales
Court of Appeal
Racing New South Wales v Fletcher [2020] NSWCA 9
Bell P, Meagher JA, Payne JA
The Court of Appeal has allowed an appeal from orders made in the Equity Division of the Supreme Court restraining Racing NSW (the appellant) from using information obtained from a mobile telephone belonging to Mr Stephen Fletcher (the respondent).

On 5 March 2019, Racing NSW Stewards had directed Mr Fletcher in writing to produce his mobile telephone for examination for the purpose of an inquiry they were conducting into the betting activities of a Mr and Mrs Snow. In compliance with that direction, Mr Fletcher gave the Stewards his phone and electronic images of the information it contained were generated and remain in the possession of Racing NSW.

On Mr Fletcher’s application, the primary judge made orders to the effect that Racing NSW could not use information obtained from Mr Fletcher’s phone for any purpose other than the specified investigation into the Snows without leave of the Court or Mr Fletcher’s consent.

There were two issues in the appeal. First, whether Mr Fletcher was bound to comply with the Stewards’ direction and second, whether the use to which Racing NSW could put the information acquired from Mr Fletcher’s phone was limited by the purpose specified in their written direction to him.

The Court of Appeal unanimously held that the Stewards’ power to investigate includes the power to initiate or commence an investigation. Information obtained in the exercise of that power, as Mr Fletcher’s phone was here, could be used for the purpose of any investigation or inquiry into a matter connected with racing, including use by informing a decision to initiate an investigation or inquiry.


Whilst the first question was not necessary to decide, two members of the Court expressed a tentative view that Mr Fletcher was bound to comply with the Stewards’ direction because s 13(1) of the Thoroughbred Racing Act 1996 (NSW) gives the investigative powers in the Rules of Racing of Racing NSW statutory force.

 In any event, Mr Fletcher was bound to comply with the direction because as a professional gambler who employed others to place bets for him he was party to a contract incorporating the Rules of Racing of Racing NSW.

Stewards have agreed to an application from Glen Boss to amend the terms of a suspension imposed yesterday. Glen Boss’s licence to ride in races is now suspended for a period to commence on Monday 9 March 2020 and to expire on Saturday 21 March 2020 on which day he may ride.

Seems a reasonable decision very sensible that Stewards are prepared to listen to reasonable propositions.
 Pity RVL stewards didn't allow Craig Williams the same leeway caused him to miss the ride on the Cup winner a few years ago.

Warwick Farm Races (Today) & Hawkesbury Races (Thurs) - Cancelled

Racing NSW received advice this afternoon that an interstate participant - who attended the Rosehill Gardens meeting on Saturday, 21 March 2020 - has received advice from health authorities that a commercial flight he caught on 12 March 2020 has had another passenger from that flight that has tested positive to COVID-19.

As the interstate participant travelled in a private charter flight with two other NSW participants and to minimise the risk of participants at today’s Warwick Farm meeting being exposed to COVID-19, the remainder of the Warwick Farm meeting has been cancelled. The interstate participant has been tested for COVID-19 and the results are expected later this week.

Accordingly, Thursday’s Hawkesbury race meeting has been cancelled  to minimise any risk to participants.

In the event the interstate participant tests negative, Racing NSW will immediately resume racing subject to any Government restriction.

ENDS

Probably refers to Craig Williams who came to Sydney to trial Castlevechhio and after MV on the Friday shared a charter with other jockeys Bowman and Berry ..hopefully he and others will test clear.

While not identified in official releases (aside from my stab in the dark incorrectly naming Craig Williams) the participant appears most likely  to be Mark Zahra who forfeited rides today at Sandown.
Apolgies to Craig Williams and fingers crossed that none of the riders who were on the charter flight have been infected by this virus

This is old news but I haven't seen any publicity at the time Wendy Roche's horse float was vandalised and tampered with late last year .....  this was serious criminal activity no news if the perp/perps were caught charged or penalised ..there are some sick individuals out there.

Wendy Roche has been forced to rely on the kindness of a fellow trainer to get Nettoyer to Melbourne for a Group I race on Victoria Derby day after her horse float was sabotaged.

Roche, who is based at Warwick Farm, initially thought mischievous vandals had slashed five of her tyres but quickly learned the damage was more sinister.

"I got them (tyres) replaced but as they were replacing them they noticed that someone had got a grinder and grinded away 90 per cent through the axle and cut the electric brakes as well," Roche told Sydney's Sky Sports Radio on Thursday.

"If you'd changed the tyres individually you would never have seen it.

"They designed it so if you went at a certain speed the float would collapse in and roll.

"The horses could have been killed. I could have been killed or whoever was driving."

Roche has reported the matter to police who are viewing security camera footage of the area where the float was parked.

Along with the serious nature of the vandalism, Roche was also left in a quandary with Nettoyer.

The mare is scheduled to contest the Group I Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on Saturday but without Roche's float, had no means to get there.

In stepped fellow Warwick Farm trainer Matt Smith who despite having his own horse truck out of action, agreed to lend Roche his float.

Both Roche and Nettoyer have since made it safely to Melbourne and Roche says the horse is "bucking and squealing" ahead of her Group I assignment.

Nettoyer is a last-start winner of the Group III Angst Stakes (1600m) at Randwick.
