There are two recent decisions under the Internal Review process which confirmed the original decision to refuse the applicant a license ..one was for a track work rider the other for an attendant in greyhound racing ......................as we know the reasons accompanying decisions of the IR are not made public ....neither of the two are known to me.
But as a matter of interest I looked up the Licensing section on the QRIC website 
There's a section under licensing called Standards and Rules which details the conditions licence holders must meet..there's the competency test and the fit and proper person test.
This is what the Greyhound Attendant application requires"-

Greyhound Attendant Licence - Practical Assessment  It is very important that both Attendants and Trainers are competent when it comes to handling a greyhound at a race meeting.  The short time frames for preparing a greyhound for a race, loading it into the starting boxes and even presenting it for kenneling means that everyone must be experienced with the relevant equipment and can handle a greyhound safely.  Your practical assessment must be conducted under the provisions of a Trial which will be supervised by a Steward, and it is necessary for you to make an appointment.  Please contact the Steward’s panel if you reside in South East Queensland and other licensees please contact the greyhound racing club closest to your place of residence.

Part 23 - Trackwork Riders Any person employed to ride (mount), work in or about a registered racing animal in the preparation for racing including riding or taking part in the training, working or custody of a registered racehorse in the preparation for racing must be licensed by the Commission as a Trackwork Rider. Horses spelling and agistment is excluded. Applicants must be 15+ years of age.  Applicants under the age of 18 must provide parental/guardian consent.  QRIC/2016/3022 v2.03 Standard for Licensing Scheme – Thoroughbreds Queensland Racing Integrity Commission  Page 24 of 25 The applicant must:  • submit a medical certificate/clearance; and  • provide an assessment report from two (2) of the following: o Open licence trainer o Senior Jockey; or • Submit a recommendation from a qualified Trainer Assessor who is engaged/authorised by an RTO to assess the person’s suitability to ride trackwork; or • Cert III Trackwork rider; or • Previously held equivalent licence within the last ten (10) years The assessment will determine which level of trackwork the rider will be able to undertake, mainly: • trackwork with jumpouts; • trackwork no jumpouts; • exercise rider (slow work, no jumpouts, up to approx. half pace). Should the applicant not meet the above criteria, their application will not be granted.

Hardly an onerous task to meet those conditions you would think.

I would expect the persons aggrieved by the refusals would have the right to apply to QCAT for a review of those decisions .

Unfortunately for them the opportunity to apply for a stay of proceedings does not appear to apply and it's a long wait to get a decision from QCAT.

Stewards ’ Report Stewards  Report: Date: Charlie  Montebello 2  August  2021
 Panel: D.  Farquharson,  L.  Wilson,  N.  Finnigan Queensland Racing  Integrity  Commission  (QRIC)
 Stewards activities of  Charlie  Montebello from  the 24  July  2021. today  inquired  into  the  betting Group  1  Queensland Trotters  Cup at  Albion  Park  on Betting  records  indicated  Mr  Montebello engaged  in various  bet  types  for  this  race,  including winning  bets  on  Tough  Monarch  which was  successful  in  the  event  and is  registered  to  Mr Montebello as  a part  owner.
Betting  records  also indicated  Mr  Montebello placed  a small  lay bet  during  the  race.

As  a result  of  this  bet  Mr  Montebello was  charged  pursuant  to AHR  rule 235A  (4)  which states: The connections  must  not  lay any  horse  that  is  or  may be  en tered  by  them  or  on  their  behalf, save  that  a bookmaker  may lay  a horse in  accordance  with his  licence.

Mr  Montebello pleaded guilty  to  the  charge  and a  fine  of  $200  was  imposed.  In assessing the  matter  of  penalty  Stewards  took  into  account  Mr  Montebello’s  forthright  evidence,  his clear  disciplinary  history  spanning  30  years,  and  his  guilty  plea.

 QRIC/201 9 /301 9 v1.01  Stewards  Report Queensland  Racing  Integrity  Commission.

ENDS

Assume the stewards routinely check Betfair accounts to catch connections which trade by laying one they have an interest in ..this is the first case of its kind that I  noticed ..there may have been others which I didn't see or don't recall...upholding and abiding by the rules is an obligation it's not optional.

Order for costs after offence proven  NSWLR256 A (1) The Stewards, having determined after an inquiry or investigation to impose a penalty upon a person for a breach of, or offence under, these Rules, may make such order as they think fit as to the payment of costs by that person in part or full of any costs and expenses incurred by the Controlling Body in connection with that inquiry or investigation.

(2) A costs order made under this Rule is additional to, and does not form part of, any penalty imposed upon the person. However the order as to costs does form part of the decision made by Stewards, and is not intended to be protected from any rights of Appeal the person may have.    (3) A costs order is payable as a debt to the Controlling Body within 14 days of notification of the quantum of the order, whether orally or in writing, to the person. Failure to comply with the terms of payment, or to enter into a payment arrangement satisfactory to the Controlling Body, may lead to the person being placed on the Unpaid Forfeit List.

ENDS

The above is a local rule of Harness Racing NSW .......there doesn't appear to be anything similar in th Qld rules ..it would improve QRIC's bottom line if costs of inquiries and testing could be imposed where offences are proved and/or  positive swabs are detected ....would that be taking the matter too far out of the comfort zone.?

Roma races controversy on Saturday  replay and the stewards report

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTFzuFvvnG8

Race 3: DJ & KA HORNICK TRANSPORT BENCHMARK 55 Handicap 1640 metre
 
THE KROC – Stood flat footed as the start was affected and lost ground. Severely inconvenienced rounding the first turn.
 
ATYAAF – Rounding the first turn was hampered when its rider was assisting PROMPT REPLY.
 
MY TARANAKI (NZ) – Bumped on jumping.
 
MAXIMUM HUSTLE - Laid in when placed under pressure in the home straight.
 
PROMPT REPLY – Began awkwardly and shifted in. Passing the winning post on the first occasion, was placed in restricted room and blundered when WAMWARRA BAY shifted in marginally and MY TARANAKI (NZ) shifted out marginally, resulting in its rider app L Barr becoming very unbalanced and almost being dislodged. After viewing the patrol footage and taking evidence from all parties stewards could not be satisfied that anyone rider was culpable under the rules and deemed the matter a racing incident.


Could be a back story to this incident  .....check out  LGHR

Some extracts from QRIC watchful eyes over the past two days .

Indian Dreamer which looked a good thing on Friday couldn't pick its feet up despite being given every chance by the jockey it began well in contrast to its previous runs where he walked out of the barrier ...this is what the stewards said :-INDIAN DREAMER – When questioned regarding the below market expectations rider A Mallyon advised the gelding travelled comfortably in a one out one back position however when placed under pressure rounding the home turn was immediately under pressure, failed to respond to his riding and proved very disappointing. A post-race veterinary examination immediately following the event revealed a poor post-race recovery and mild heat stress. Co-trainer Trent Edmonds also expressed disappointment in the performance and advised the horse had recovered well on return to the stable and would report back to Stewards any condition which may come to light in the coming days.

The horse had been pre race tested so it wasn't ordered to be swabbed again ...not sure if that is usual practice ....trainer subsequently advised stewards as follows

SUPPLEMENTARY
From the Gold Coast 27/8/21
 
Race 3 -Trainer T Edmonds reported that a Veterinary examination of INDIAN DREAMER conducted this morning, which included an endoscopic examination, revealed it to be suffering the effects of a virus, for which it will now be treated. The stable will now monitor the manner in which the gelding responds to this treatment before determining the progress of its current preparation.
ENDS

From Saturday's Doomben meeting

KING OF THE DESERT- Stewards questioned rider R Stewart regarding the reason he stopped riding his mount over the concluding stages of the race. Jockey R Stewart reported that he had been experiencing some physical discomfort in his back during the event and as a result was unable to ride the gelding out with his normal vigour. Following the event Jockey R Stewart was stood down by the Club Doctor and was unable to fulfil his other rider engagements. Stewards noted the explanation. Riding changes as per summary.

BENTLEY MAGIC – Rider R Fradd reported the gelding was reluctant to improve between runners in the home straight which resulted in him being unable to ride his mount out in his usual vigour. He added that the gelding would be better suited racing wider in future starts.(Couldn't pick its feet up Saturday very well backed my self included ...never again
I find it strange that it wasn't swabbed pre race only one horse in that race was tested Rebel Rock )

BARNEY'S LAW – Near the 1500m was checked and lost ground when tightened for room to the inside of RULE THE WORLD (R Maloney) which shifted in. Jockey R Maloney was found guilty of a charge of careless riding under the provisions of AR131(a) in that he shifted in when insufficiently clear of BARNEY’S LAW which was steadied and taken in onto ULYSSES which was also taken in onto ROMAN AUREUS which had to be steadied. Jockey R Maloney licence to ride in races was suspended for a period of 9 days to commence midnight 6 September 2021 and expire midnight 15 September 2021.

Stewards’  Report   Stewards  Report:  Graham  Kliese Date:  26th  August  2021 Panel:  Peter  Chadwick,  Daniel  Aurisch  &  Tate  Hudson Queensland  Racing  Integrity  Commission  (QRIC) 
Stewards  today  concluded  an  inquiry  into  a complaint  lodged  regarding  the  conduct  and  behaviour  of  licensed  jockey  Graham  Kliese  during  the course  of  the  race  meeting  at  Mareeba  Turf  Club  on  the  26th  of  June  2021. Evidence  and  documentation  was  tendered  by  Mr  Graham  Kliese  and  evidence  provided  by  Stewards who  officiated  on  the  day  was  also  considered.
 After  considering  all  the  evidence,  Mr  Kliese subsequently  plead  guilty  to  a  charge  under  AR  228(c)  which  reads: “A  person  must  not  engage  in  improper  or  insulting  behaviour  at  any  time  towards  a  PRA,  the Stewards,  a  Club,  or  any  official,  employee,  contractor  or  agent  of  any  of  them  in  relation  to  the relevant  person’s  functions,  powers  or  duties”
The  specifics  of  the  charge  being  that  during  the  course  of  the  Mareeba  Turf  Club  meeting  on  the  26th of  June  2021,  Mr  Kliese  conducted  himself  improperly  by  displaying  improper  behaviour  which included  inappropriate  language  towards  a  QRIC  Steward  in  the  vicinity  of  the  scales  area  which  was audible  to  other  licensees  and  officials.
 When  considering  an  appropriate  penalty,  the  Stewards  considered  relevant  penalty  precedents,  the seriousness  of  the  charge  and  the  need  for  a  penalty  to  serve  as  a  specific  deterrent  to  Mr  Kliese  and a  general  deterrent  to  the  wider  industry  to  illustrate  that  this  type  of  conduct  will  not  be  tolerated.  The panel  also  acknowledged  Mr  Klieses’  forthright  evidence,  that  he  was  very  remorseful  about  the incident  and  that  Mr  Kliese  had  proactively  taken  steps  personally  to  help  with  personal  issues.
 Subsequently  Mr  Kliese  was  suspended  from  riding  in  races  for  a  period  of  four  (4)  weeks,  however acting  under  AR  283(5),  Stewards  suspended  three  (3)  weeks  of  the  penalty  for  a  period  of  two  (2) years  provided  there  is  no  breach  of  a  similar  rule  in  that  time. The  suspension  will  commence  at  midnight  2nd  September  2021  and  will  expire  at  midnight  9th September  2021. Mr  Kliese  was  made  aware  of  his  rights  to  an  internal  review. QRIC/2019/3019  v1.01  Stewards  Report Queensland  Racing  Integrity  Commission

Human error cause for greyhound wrong call
27 August 2021

The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission has investigated a miscommunication of placegetters at Wednesday’s Capalaba greyhound race meeting.

In race 2 the judge called the second and third placegetters in the incorrect order, and the mistake was not identified before all clear was given.

Chief Greyhound Steward Wade Hadley said it was a mistake that should not have happened and can only be put down to human error.

“We will ensure the best available technology is used to prevent future incidents,” he said.

The Commission apologies for the inconvenience caused.

Short report in the CM today quotes Racing Minister Grace Grace as being unable to indicate when the outdated and cumbersome QLD Racing Appeals system (for which the Dept of Ag & Fish is responsible for ....can you believe that ) will be replaced by something resembling a workable sydtem viz Racing Victoria's VRT or RNSW Racing Appeals Panel and Racing Tribunal .

QRIC Annual Report tabled in Parliament on 30 Sept ........lots of detail but no specifics regarding cases investigated ...just the percentages of outcomes ........interesting that they survey random targets most of whom knew nothing about the QRIC ......licensees overall are somewhat satisfied that QRIC operates fairly 73%....and they are still working with Ag & Fish on the promised independent appeals system ......and hair testing is ongoing but apparently hasn't shown up any positives......must be a waste of time.

A key learning for the Commission from the 2020-21 Community Perceptions Survey was how well the public knows the Commission’s role and purpose. From the 1,000 people surveyed, 59% indicated they had never heard of   the Commission, 26% had heard of the Commission but knew next to nothing of its role or purpose, and 15% somewhat knew/knew very well of the existence of the Commission and its purpose. In 2021-22, the Commission has an action plan to establish an annual engagement program to raise industry and community awareness of the Commission’s role and purpose.




Objective 2.  Ensure industry  integrity  through   the consistent  and fair administration   of  the rules  of  racing Performance indicators Percentage of original decisions accepted without challenge Percentage of original decisions, challenged at Internal Review, confirmed Notes 1 Results 92.40% 2 Percentage of external review (QCAT) matters finalised in favour of the Commission 3 90.80% 88% Notes: 1.  In 2020-21, there were 1,947 original decisions made by Commission stewards and 148 applications for internal review. Of the 152 internal reviews finalised in 2020-21, 14 decisions were amended or substituted at internal review. The low number of penalties or decisions altered compared to the number of internal reviews finalised demonstrates consistent and appropriate decision-making in terms of penalties from Commission stewards. 2.  Of the 152 internal reviews finalised in 2020-21, 14 decisions were amended or substituted. 3.  Of the 84 QCAT matters finalised in 2020-21:–QCAT found in favour of the applicant in 10 matters–QCAT found in favour of the Commission in 13 matters–8 matters were settled with the applicant and the review application withdrawn–for the remaining finalised matters (53), the applicant withdrew the application and accepted the original decision of the Commission. Other results against this objective includes: •  1,611 race meetings attended. •  1,947 original decisions made by race-day stewards.

Other results against this objective includes: •  1,611 race meetings attended •  1,947 original decisions made by race-day stewards •  A total of 73% of industry participants across all three codes perceive the Commission as somewhat firm and fair.

Trackwork riders stood down pending test results
13 October 2021

Two Queensland trackwork riders were stood down at trackwork this week after the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Integrity Investigations Team (IIT) carried out a human sampling operation at the Gold Coast.

The riders’ preliminary tests showed indications of a banned substance and they are not permitted to ride pending confirmatory analysis.

Another two riders returned preliminary results which will be further investigated.

The IIT operation included urine and breath sampling of 59 riders which also determined two riders to be unlicensed at the time.

Out for 18 months allegedly trying to fix the race at Tambo in May......whoever he tried to help must have reported the conversation.


Stewards’ Report   Queensland Racing Integrity Commission Stewards Report: Paul Randall Date: 20 September 2021 Panel: J Adams and C Allison.  Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Stewards today concluded an inquiry into an alleged incident at the Tambo racecourse on 29 May 2021 prior to the running of race five involving Jockey Paul Randall. It was alleged after being loaded into the barriers prior to the running of race five, Jockey Paul Randall counselled another rider to interfere with High Cost, which the rider declined to do so.  Stewards also noted that Jockey Randall was charged with careless riding following the running of Race five in that he dictated terms to inside runners nearing the 1300m with Burden, High Cost and Mishani Blossom all being restrained. After considering all of the evidence, Mr Randall was issued with a charge pursuant to AR 227(b) which states:  Breaches of the rules without limiting any other powers, a PRA or the Stewards may penalise any person who:  (b) attempts to commit, aids, abets, counsels, procures, connives at, approaches or requests another person to commit, conspires with another person to commit, or is a party to another person who commits, a breach of the Rules. The specifics of the charge being that Paul Randall as a licensed Jockey with the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission at the Tambo racecourse on 29 May 2021 whilst loaded in the barriers prior to the running of race five, counselled another rider to commit a breach of the rules, namely AR129(3). AR 129 Running and handling  (3) Except where the safety of any horse or rider in a race requires otherwise, every horse must be ridden in such a manner to benefit only its own best interests and not to the advantage of any other horse or rider. Jockey Randall pleaded not guilty to the charge but made no submissions in regard to penalty. When considering an appropriate penalty, Stewards view breaches of this kind very seriously, as it can have a detrimental effect on the image of racing, and penalties must serve as a general deterrent to illustrate to the entire racing industry and general public that these activities  cannot  be  condoned . Such  actions  show  dangerous  disregard  to  both  Jockey  and horse  welfare  and  any  such  penalty  must  give  rider  confidence  that  they  can  compete  without the  fear  of  others  intentionally  causing  harm.  Stewards also  c onsidered  previous  penalties  for breaches  of  this  rule .

Races called off after jockeys fatigue concerns
The field in race three rounds the first corner at Toowoomba Turf Club Clifford Park racecourse, Saturday, March 13, 2021. Pictu Kevin Farmer

Races at Toowoomba on Saturday night were sensationally called off after a group of jockeys raised concerns about fatigue due to the races going too late into the night.

The concerns were raised following a lengthy delay after a number of lights at the track malfunctioned, causing stewards to postpone the races until they were fixed.

However, once the lights were repaired, a group of jockeys raised fatigue concerns with the remaining races to run later than had been originally scheduled.

With another group of jockeys keen to race on despite the delay, News Corp understands heated scenes took place with a number of trainers having already transported their horses to the track.

With two races having already run, race three was rescheduled to run at around 7:30pm but the group of jockeys concerned about riding late into the night opted to pull their services instead.

“Stewards heard concerns from the majority of the riding delegation as they were of the opinion that the remaining events would proceed too late into the evening, and as a result, expressed concern for their safety and fatigue,” the stewards report read.

“After offering solutions to ensure a timely completion of the meeting, the delegation of riders opted to withdraw their services, therefore leaving stewards without any option but to postpone the remaining events.”

It’s understood a range of options were offered to the fractured riding group which could ensure their safety.

Jockey Skye Bogenhuber was fined $1000 on the night, $500 of which was suspended for directing obscene and offensive language towards a steward.

Racing Queensland has since announced the remaining five races will be run on Tuesday with the fields to stay the same.

Late nights and early mornings don't mix good on the riders for speaking up and the stewards who listened .

Close to the biggest load of garbage I have read regarding the racing Industry. Most of these so called jockeys should be just glad they get an opportunity to ride at TAB meetings with TAB prize money. Put it this way their services are generally not required at major TAB meetings. What about the poor old owners , trainers etc. This uneducated riff raff obviously have little regard for those who ultimately fund their life styles. One owner I spoke to Today said he will make sure to hang up whenever their managers get on the phone chasing rides. As he said to me what about the greyhound trainers and harness racing drivers whose meetings consistently finish after these little bundles of joy. They remain the great takers in this Industry.

PUNTERS COP ‘RAW PRAWN’ FROM ‘PLODDER & GILLY’ AT DOOMBEN
THE other situation involving stewards occurred at Doomben on Saturday and did not involve careless riding but performances that at the least should have been queried after failures at previous starts.

Peter the Plodder Chadwick was in charge and one of his first lieutenants Paul Gillard (just when we thought he had been dispatched to the deep north for good) was on the panel. That probably explains why there was little action at the station.

It was the first at Doomben and the Chris Waller stable had two of the six runners. Irish Sequel, chasing a hat-trick, was heavily backed and ousted Honorable Spirit from favoritism.

Surprise, surprise, the Waller stablemate of the favorite, He Runs Away, which had been placed in one of 10 starts since a spell, blows them away. Not that a win by a second string of Waller’s is any surprise to punters in Australian racing – in fact it’s par for the course most weeks.

The John Smerdon-trained Honorable Secret has been flying and ran second in the Toowoomba Cup. He Runs Away finished seventh in the same race, met his rival 1.5kg worse but managed to improve about five lengths.

Stewards were entitled to ask a question. That was left to the hosts at SKY. Michael Maxworthy, bewildered by the result, greeted the win with a ‘Well goodness me!’ It was left to Bernadette Cooper to question the Waller stable Queensland foreman about the form reversal. His response: “It hasn’t been going all that bad.” :o

Fast forward to Race 7 at Doomben and Waller has a three-pronged attacked headed by So Taken which looked the obvious on its most recent form. But the money arrived for stablemate Kubrick who hadn’t won for his big syndicate of owners, headed by Star Thoroughbreds, for 727 days.

Kubrick must have thought it was Groundhog Day – his last win was in the inaugural $1 million Bondi Stakes at Randwick two years ago to the day. To be fair he has been knocking on the door this preparation – problem is punters have been burnt by the five-year-old so many times that they think his 'Pedigree' is food he eats.

Sitting back watching the fun and games at the Valley where their colleagues were being spied on under a blind through a window by the media because they were barred from the protest hearing, the Doomben stipes rested on their laurels.

It didn’t matter that Go Wandji had been beaten at Warwick at his previous start – after all he did run second – when the lightly-raced four-year-old came out and blew his rivals away in the much stronger eighth race at Doomben rising from a BM55 in the bush to a BM70 in the city.

Not a question asked about the improvement. By this stage Plodder and Gilly were probably hoeing into the prawns and oysters provided from the BRC kitchen to keep the stewards contented on Cox Plate day. Where’s Daniel Aurisch when the punters need him?

Rockhampton dual licensee disqualified for 12 months
22 October 2021
Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) stewards have handed down a 12-month disqualification to dual licensee Tasha Chambers for failing to provide a urine sample.
The Rockhampton licensed jockey and trainer was found guilty of AR139 after she failed to provide a urine sample as directed by the stewards at Longreach on 25 September.
Ms Chambers is not permitted to enter or start any horse in any race effective immediately and she has seven days to transfer horses out of her care.
Stewards have allowed Ms Chambers in the interim to continue to tend to the horses and their welfare.
At the end of the 12-month penalty Ms Chambers must provide a sample free of any banned substances before she can apply to be relicensed.
ENDS.
