QCAT decision on a punch up at Ippy dogs IR decision set aside and substituted 3 months suspension one month suspended Darren  Russell seems a harsh decision on my reading of the learned member's decision Russell was provoked and has a good record and is held in good regard by club administrators who submitted character references a fine would have been more appropriate IMO maybe I'm getting  too soft hearted in my old age.

QRIC appeals QCAT decision on Currie jigger charges
14 September 2020
The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) has appealed the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) ruling that set aside an internal review which confirmed the Steward’s decision of May last year that found former Toowoomba Trainer Ben Currie guilty of jigger charges.
Stewards found Mr Currie guilty of engaging in an improper action following an investigation into text messages relating to the intention to use an electronic apparatus capable of affecting the performance of two horses.
On 20 August 2020 QCAT accepted Mr Currie’s appeal and ruled he did not breach AR175(a) setting aside the June 2019 internal review.
The Commission has appealed the decision to the QCAT appeals tribunal.

QCAT decision Member Fitzpatrick

Ben Ahrens Cobalt positive 9 months suspension instead of Disqualification suspended sentence but fined $3K horse was treated inadvertently by staff member.

If Benjamin Carl Ahrens engages in any conduct which results in a contravention of Australian Rule of Racing 178 for which a penalty is imposed, during the period of suspension, the period of suspension will immediately be re-activated and the suspension will be served in full. The matters which are the subject of any new charge will be treated and dealt with as a separate proceeding.

Qld integrity boss: Delay in John O'Shea charge is 'not acceptable'

Article Author
Ben Dorries

11:01AM 21 June 2020

Queensland Racing Integrity Commission boss Ross Barnett has conceded the lengthy delay it took stewards to bring a prohibited substances charge against Sydney trainer John O'Shea is not acceptable.

It emerged on Friday that O’Shea has been charged by Queensland stewards for presenting Pretty In Pink to race with the party drug ice in its system when winning the Group II Moreton Cup during last year's winter carnival.

Stewards have called for submissions from O’Shea for an inquiry after a positive swab to the prohibited substances methamphetamine and amphetamine was taken from Pretty in Pink on June 1, 2019.

O’Shea has not been charged with administration of the prohibited substance.

It has taken over a year for the matter to progress this far and Barnett admits that is simply not good enough.

"The lengthy delay in the matter of trainer John O’Shea and his prohibited substances charge is not acceptable and the issuing of this charge has taken far longer that it should have," Barnett said, in a statement to Racenet.

"While not an excuse, there are several circumstances that have led to the delay, including the extraordinary situation associated with the COVID-19 pandemic which has increased the workload of the stewards across the State.

"During the COVID-19 restrictions, QRIC stewards have been exclusively focussed on working with Racing Queensland and the entire racing industry to ensure the continuation of racing during this time including adhering to restriction zones that were established around the state. 

"This support for the racing calendar has prevented the normal progression of outstanding inquiries.

"In addition to the COVID-19 pressures the stewards have had to deal with a 61 percent increase in the number of thoroughbred positive swab investigations this financial year and each one takes time to thoroughly prosecute.

"The Commission is monitoring the status of outstanding disciplinary matters to ensure inquiries are held in a more timely fashion."

There have been reports there is a belief the drug got into Pretty In Pink's system because of inadvertent contamination while stabled on the Gold Coast.

Pretty In Pink was retired to stud earlier this year.

The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained Brave Song was the runner-up in the 2019 Moreton Cup.

ENDS

Unacceptable delay COVID-19 is no excuse Ben Dorries did well getting Ross Barnett to respond on a Sunday not that it will alter the fact that the horse returned a positive possibly contamination from any number of people except the trainer who under the rules is responsible although in this case the horse wouldn't have had his hands on it since leaving his stables ...good luck finding whoever it was who had the drug in his/her system......you would think any proper investigation would involve establishing who had contact with the mare at the time and subjecting them to a drug test too late now 12 months later.

Large fine for Brisbane Harness Trainer’s TC02 breach

25 September 2020

Brisbane Harness Trainer Donny Smith has been fined $15,000 after he was found guilty of administering an alkalising agent on race day.

QRIC Stewards charged Mr Smith with bringing Celtic Cruza to race at Albion Park on 20 June 2020 with an elevated TCO2 level due to the administration of an alkalinising agent that day.

Queensland Racing Integrity Commission Chief Harness Steward David Farquharson said despite a blitz on pre-race testing, some participants were continuing to flout the prohibited substance and race day administration rules.

“These breaches of the rules are disappointing and despite the warnings and ongoing pre-race testing, they are an ongoing problem for the integrity of the sport,” he said.

“Mr Smith has had four previous breaches of this rule within five years and he has been handed a large fine.

“The penalty must serve as a deterrent to illustrate that race day administration of alkalising agents to elevated levels will not be tolerated and regulation by the Commission is of paramount importance to the integrity of harness racing.”

Mr Smith was also suspended for a period of six months fully suspended for a period of two years and Celtic Cruza was disqualified from the 20 June race.

Steward’s Report

$1K fine for a minor administrative error  they could just as easily given him a slap on the wrist with a stern warning not to do it again although $1K to a successful trainer is probably chicken feed.

Trackwork rider breath test slightly over the limit after consuming 6 stubbies the night before.

A Stewards’ Inquiry was convened on 1 December 2019 where Mr Drakeley pleaded guilty to the charge and a penalty of suspension from riding for a period of one month was imposed on Mr Drakeley. Mr Drakeley requested QRIC to internally review this decision. Mr K Ashby of QRIC undertook this internal review and on 2 January 20202 decided (the Decision) to amend the original decision by imposing a one month suspension, of which two weeks is wholly suspended for a period of two years pursuant to Rule 283 of ARR.

https://archive.sclqld.org.au/qjudgment/2020/QCAT20-359.pdf

"The decision of 2 December 2019 is set aside. The penalty imposed on the Applicant is a fine of $500 and a suspension for a period of two (2) week which is wholly suspended for a period of two (2) years pursuant to Australian Rule of Racing 283, on the condition the Applicant does not re-offend under such rule in that period. The fine of $500 must be paid within 30 days of the date of this order."

LNP flags radical overhaul of racing
 
AN LNP government would radically overhaul the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission, halving its annual cost of $28m and redirecting a big chunk of that saving to prizemoney.

The LNP racing policy, to be announced today, addresses QRIC and the need for a review to look at “unnecessary spending, lengthy disciplinary processes and integrity issues’’.

The aim is to more closely align Queensland with the NSW and Victorian integrity models, which cost those states about $12m a year. The LNP will also abolish the all-codes board model, meaning the three codes, thoroughbreds, harness and greyhounds, would return to having their own boards.

LNP racing spokesman John-Paul Langbroek (pictured) said going back to the three boards would enable codes to “control their own destiny, rather than have decisions made for it by people from a different sport’’.

The RQ board will remain, effectively meaning four boards. The control boards will not have the power to make decisions without the approval of Racing Queensland.

A “spill’’ of senior board positions at RQ would occur post-election. It’s understood a review will also be undertaken into senior executive roles. An appointment panel would be established to ensure the depoliticisation of the process.

Mr Langbroek said the disciplinary system needed an urgent overhaul. “The enforcement of the rules of racing is best placed in the hands of racing stewards’’ he said.
Similar to NSW, the LNP proposes a specialist appeal panel for thoroughbreds, as well as a Racing Appeals Tribunal for greyhounds and harness participants, which will act as the last point for appeals. The LNP will remove QCAT’s involvement with disciplinary matters, except when a question of law arises.


Meanwhile, remember Labor’s decision to impose a Point of Consumption tax on corporate bookies? It sparked industrial action and resulted in a strike on Cox Plate day two years ago. The government caved in and gave the industry an extra $30m. Well, Treasury documents show the government reaped $116m from the POC in 2019-20, $15m more than they had forecasted. Not a bad little earner.

ENDS

Peter Gleeson gives the LNP another free kick which apart from aligning the appeals system with NSW & Victoria IMO his other thought bubbles are a backward step ...several steps in fact back to the bad old days .....and IMO  the Victorian system is equal to or better than NSW .....which it appears the former dentist favours ..he has had talks with Peter V'Landys ....fancy trying to unscramble the egg that RQ is and reverting to the three separate codes to be overseen by a restructured RQ ......a bureaucratic nightmare one that Sir Humphrey Appleby would approve of ...the MacSporran report recognised the value of splitting the promotion of racing's three codes from integrity by creating the QRIC...... which I think could do better than it has ....but turning back the clock isn't the answer and Hinchcliffe should have sorted the appeals process out so this would have been resolved well before it has become an election issue.
The State Election is on 31 October and is likely to be close with the minor parties having some influence on the result.
