Industry Notice
Japanese encephalitis found
in Southern Queensland
Biosecurity Queensland has released a biosecurity notice following the detection of Japanese encephalitis at a commercial piggery in southern Queensland.
The disease has also been detected in piggeries in New South Wales and Victoria.
Japanese encephalitis is a mosquito-borne viral disease with a natural transmission cycle in waterbirds.
Disease can occur in pigs and horses when bitten by infected mosquitoes.
Direct horse-to horse or horse-to-human transmission does not occur.
In horses, the disease is usually mild with symptoms including fever, lethargy and decreased appetite.  Jaundice and neurological (nervous) signs, such as incoordination or difficulty swallowing, may develop in some cases. 
Occasionally, severe neurological signs such as hyperexcitation, muscle tremors, profuse sweating and blindness may occur.
Steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of exposure of horses to mosquitos include:
•   using physical barriers such as light rugs and hoods during peak periods of mosquito activity (between dusk and dawn).
•   reducing mosquito breeding sites on the premises by removing standing water.
•   using fans and automatic overhead misting systems to reduce mosquito numbers in stables.
•   using mosquito repellents; and
•   if possible, housing horses in mosquito-screened stables.
Recent heavy rains and higher than average rainfall provide ideal conditions for mosquitos to breed.
For more information about Japanese encephalitis in animals see the Business Queensland website.
Japanese encephalitis virus can also cause disease in people.
For more information about Japanese Encephalitis in people see the Queensland Health website.

SUPPLEMENTARY REPORT
Stewards Panel – P. Zimmermann, P. Chadwick, D. Aurisch
Ipswich Turf Club 9th March 2022 - Race 2
 
Stewards today concluded an inquiry from race 2 on the above date into the circumstances as to Ryan Maloney being dislodged from his mount SACRED OATH (NZ). It was established that near the 1400m, Ben Thompson, rider of TESAURA, after being ridden forward from a wide barrier and whilst shifting in at an acute angle, in an attempt to obtain a position nearer the rail, resulting in THE GREY PANTHER, ridden by Tegan Harrison, being severely tightened for racing room and taken inwards making contact with SACRED OATH (NZ), which had a consequential effect causing SACRED OATH (NZ), ridden by R. Maloney to be tightened making heavy contact with the running rail, being severely checked and dislodging its rider.
 
Jockey Ben Thompson was charged and after considering the evidence and submissions was found guilty of careless riding pursuant to AR131(a). Stewards when considering penalty noted Jockey Ben Thompson’s exemplary riding record having had 489 rides since his last suspension on 16 January 2021, the degree of carelessness and the significant interference. Jockey Ben Thompson’s license to ride in races was suspended for a period of 4 weeks to commence at midnight the 21/03/2022 and expire at midnight the 18/04/2022. Mr Thompson was advised of his appeal rights. 

Stewards  vision shows the severe interference classed as high end by the stewards.

Warne horse owner fined after hoop felt ‘intimidated’

By Ben Dorries
11:38am • 16 March 2022
The managing owner of a horse part-owned by cricket great Shane Warne has been fined by stewards after jockey Ben Thompson said he felt “intimidated” during a verbal altercation in the parade area at Ipswich last week.

Jarred Magnabosco was hauled before Queensland stewards who charged him with misconduct under the provisions of conduct detrimental to the interests of racing.

The charge was laid in relation to emotions flaring when Sacred Oath, part-owned by Warne, dumped jockey Ryan Maloney at Ipswich and Magnabosco later confronted Thompson who he believed was to blame for causing the ugly racing incident.

Thompson was later suspended for four weeks for careless riding and has since launched an internal review of the stewards’ decision.

In evidence at the 10am hearing at Eagle Farm on Wednesday, Thompson was asked by steward Paul Zimmerman what had transpired in the verbal altercation with Magnabosco after the Sacred Oath race.

“I was intimidated to begin with,” Thompson said.

“The first thing he said was what I’d just done was a disgrace.

“I responded with ‘are you serious?’

“I was then told I shouldn’t have a (riding) licence.


“I understand emotions were high, but it wasn’t ideal … there’s no place for it at all.
“What if I was an apprentice (jockey)?”
 

The stewards hearing was told Thompson reported the matter to stewards on the day and the stipes then ordered Magnabosco out of the area.

Fellow jockey Boris Thornton also told Magnabosco to leave.

Magnabosco, who pleaded guilty to the charge, apologised to Thompson during the stewards hearing and insisted the incident was “totally uncharacteristic of myself”.

“It was a heat of the moment thing and I’m sincerely apologetic,” he said.

“I’ve been going to the races for 20 years and done nothing like this.

“Looking back now, if I could have my time again I definitely wouldn’t do it.”

Magnabosco told Thompson: “I’m sorry if I intimidated you.”

He then told stewards: “I couldn’t be any more remorseful for making him (Thompson) not feel safe.”

“I am prepared to cop the right whack for what I did,” Magnabosco said.

Zimmerman fined Magnabosco $500.

“Sometimes in racing you need to put your emotions aside, jockeys are a close-knit community,” Zimmerman told Magnabosco.

As for Sacred Oath, Magnabosco said he intended to apply to racing authorities to have the number “23” on the back of the colours as a tribute to Warne the next time the David Vandyke-trained galloper raced.

ENDS

Doesn't appear that there'll be any application for an internal review on the severity of the penalty.

Ryan Maloney who escaped serious injury was quoted as saying  "I was fuming and didn’t want to do something I would regret"

Jockey Ryan Maloney says he was fuming at rival hoop Ben Thompson after being knocked off Shane Warne’s horse in dramatic scenes but has forgiven him as “he is a good kid who has no malice in him.”
Maloney has revealed he had not wanted to talk to Thompson after the sensational scenes at Ipswich on Wednesday when Maloney crashed to the deck on Sacred Oath after suffering interference caused by Thompson on the eventual race winner.

“Ben came up to me and said sorry, he was pretty shaken up by it obviously,” Maloney told News Corp.

“I just kept it short and sweet as I was fuming and I didn’t want to do something I would regret later.

“I just said ‘you should have known better’ and just left it at that.

“It can happen to the best of us, Ben is a good kid and he has got no malice in him and he would definitely never go out there to try to line me up.”

Jockey given lengthy ban

Stewards’ Report     QRIC/2019/3019 v1.01 Stewards Report Queensland Racing Integrity Commission Stewards Report: Nathan Day  Date: 21/3/2022 Panel: B Cooke, G. Meek, S. Larkins 
Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Stewards today concluded an inquiry into the conduct of licensed jockey Mr Nathan Day at the Rockhampton Jockey Club on Saturday 12th March 2022.
After considering all the evidence tendered, Mr Day was found guilty of a charge under AR228(a): AR 228 Conduct detrimental to the interests of racing A person must not engage in: (a) conduct prejudicial to the image, interests, integrity, or welfare of racing, whether or not that conduct takes place within a racecourse or elsewhere;

The specifics of the charge being that during the running of the race meeting held at the Rockhampton Jockey Club on Saturday the 12th of March 2022 he engaged in conduct within the scales area of the Jockey club which was prejudicial to the image of racing. In determining penalty stewards took into consideration the conduct of jockey Day has a negative impact on the racing industry and the general public.   Taking the above into consideration, Mr Day was disqualified for a period of nine (9) months to commence immediately Monday 21st March 2022 and to conclude midnight Wednesday 21st December 2022.  Jockey Day was advised of his appeal rights.

What did he do ????? the specifics of the charge haven't been disclosed what was the CONDUCT he is alleged to have done on the face of it this omission is sufficient for the charge to be thrown out whether at Internal Review or if it goes to QCAT.

The pathetic lack of information and transparency contained in QRIC stewards reports and internal reviews is a stain on the industry.
Compare QRIC's scant detail in all cases to what is offered to participants and the public on every other state. The Nathan Day case highlights what has been going on for years under the jackbooted QRIC administration. Why the paranoia and secrecy?
Until QRIC was formed, all stewards reports, appeals etc contained detailed transcripts of evidence, findings etc. That was good enough for more than 100 years (and still is for everywhere else in Australia) so why have the shutters come down on transparency?
I cannot understand why industry bodies (Trainers Assn, Jockeys Assn, Press) and the public at large do not actively agitate for full details/transcripts etc to be included in all QRIC decisions.

GENERAL
 
Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Stewards have commenced an inquiry following a report from the QRIC Integrity Investigative Team (IIT) regarding the alleged
possession and administration of Hemoplex (containing cobalt salts) after a routine Race Day inspection at trainer Robert Heathcote’s stables this morning.
The use of Hemoplex (containing cobalt salts) has been banned since 1 May 2021. An examination of the stable’s treatment book indicated that Mr. Heathcote’s runners set to race at Doomben today, Crymenotears, Prince of Boom, Startantes and Starvirgo had received an injection of a product containing cobalt salts on 16 April 2022.
After taking initial evidence from the IIT officers and Mr. Heathcote, Stewards considered the matter and subsequently scratched all four runners from today’s Doomben Race meeting acting under AR254A (2).
If the Stewards are satisfied that a horse has been, or is likely to have been, administered a product containing cobalt salts by injection, the Stewards may prevent the horse from starting in any race, official trial or jump out.
Samples have been taken from the four horses for analysis and the inquiry adjourned for a date to be fixed.

Date: 29 April 2022
Panel: Clayton Warren
Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Stewards today concluded an
inquiry into circumstances that led to Jockey Nathan Fazackerley riding at the Dalby
race meeting on the 23 April 2022, whilst serving a suspension for careless riding.

After taking submissions from Jockey Fazackerley, and considering the
circumstances by which he came to ride at the meeting, the QRIC Stewards charged
Jockey Fazackerley under the provisions of AR266(1) which reads:
Unless otherwise ordered, during the period of a rider’s suspension the rider cannot
ride in any race, official trial, jump-out or trackwork, except if the terms of the rider’s
suspension are that the rider is suspended from riding in races only.

The particulars being that Jockey Nathan Fazackerley, did breach the conditions of a
ten (10) day suspension incurred at Ipswich on the 6 April 2022 for careless riding,
by riding the following runners at Dalby on 23 April 2022:
Race 1- Maiden Plate 1400m- THE GROUSE
Race 6- QTIS 3yo Maiden Handicap 800m- SPIRIT OF QUIN
Race 7- Maiden Plate 1788m- VENOMOUS

In determining penalty, Stewards considered the circumstances of the incident,
Jockey Fazackerley’s guilty plea, and also that he had applied for a stay of
proceedings with the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) on 20
April 2022. It was established, however, that the application had not been processed
and/or forwarded to the QRIC for review prior to his riding at Dalby.

Stewards were also mindful of the serious nature of Jockey Fazackerley’s breach
and the necessity for any penalty to act as not only a specific deterrent but to the
Document title, Queensland Racing Integrity Commission 2
industry cohort as a whole to ensure the conditions of suspensions are respected
and adhered to.
Jockey Fazackerley was subsequently fined $2000.

Stewards did consider the matter as pertains to AR270, however elected not to issue
any charge under that rule in this instance.

He was advised of his right to an internal review.
Additionally, Stewards intend to review the matter further and implement any
necessary measures to mitigate the opportunity for such an occurrence to eventuate
again in the future.

ENDS

Very strange case suspension should have ended by 23 April obviously not  :what:

Stewards’ Report
QRIC/2019/3019 v1.01 Stewards Report
Queensland Racing Integrity Commission
Stewards Report: Trainer Mr. Ben Robinson.
Date: 24 May 2022
Panel: P Zimmermann, P Chadwick, D Aurisch, C Simpson.
Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Stewards today concluded an inquiry into
the events and circumstances which ultimately led to an unnamed yearling colt by All Too
Hard X Purple Royal being euthanised on 31 March 2022.
After considering of the evidence, Trainer Mr Robinson was issued a charge pursuant to AR
231(1)(b)(iii), which reads:
A person must not, if the person is in charge of a horse, fail at any time: to provide veterinary
treatment to the horse where such treatment is necessary for the horse.
The particulars of the charge being that Mr Robinson as the Trainer and carer of the All Too
Hard X Purple Royal colt between approximately the 13 February 2022 and 31 March 2022,
did fail to seek, and provide professional veterinary treatment for the colt, when such
treatment was necessary after it was exhibiting acute pain in both front feet. A subsequent
veterinary consultation which included x-rays of the affected hooves revealed a poor
prognosis and acting on veterinary advice the colt was euthanised on humane grounds.
Mr Robinson pleaded guilty to the charge and made submissions regarding penalty.
In determining an appropriate penalty, Stewards considered Mr Robinson’s record over a
long period of time, his conscious attempts to provide some treatment to the colt and his
personal circumstances. Stewards were also mindful of similar penalty precedents, the
negative impact such breaches have on the image of racing and the need for a penalty to
serve as an appropriate deterrent to ensure racing is conducted with the required care and
welfare of all animals.
Mr Robinson was subsequently disqualified for a period of 12 months to take immediate
effect and to conclude at midnight 23 May 2023. Stewards also acting under the provisions
of AR 283 (7) advised Mr Robinson that he would be required to relinquish any ownership he
may have and disperse all thoroughbred horses on his property within seven days.
Mr Robinson was made aware of his appeal rights.
ENDS
Another cobalt positive Brad Hudson some bad timing in this one.

Banned rider wins at Dalby

BEN DORRIES

AN EXTRAORDINARY bungle has resulted in a Queensland jockey riding a winner while ­suspended.

Stewards have concluded an inquiry into how jockey Nathan Fazackerley rode at the Dalby race meeting on April 23 while serving a ­suspension for careless riding.

Fazackerley (pictured) rode three runners at Dalby, winning the last race on the Kevin Sims-trained Venomous.

At the time, Fazackerley was suspended after being slapped with a 10-day riding ban from an Ipswich meeting.

The fact he went on to ride at Dalby while suspended is more evidence of a flawed appeals system in Queensland.

Fazackerley believed he was in the clear to ride at Dalby given he had applied for a stay of proceedings of his ban.

However, riding at Dalby, stewards charged Fazackerley under the provisions of AR266(1), which reads: “Unless otherwise ordered, during the period of a rider’s suspension the rider cannot ride in any race, official trial, jumpout or trackwork, except if the terms of the rider’s suspension are that the rider is suspended from riding in races only.”

The stewards’ report into the incident reads: “In determining penalty, stewards considered the circumstances of the incident, jockey Fazackerley’s guilty plea, and also that he had applied for a stay of proceedings with the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal on 20 April 2022.

“It was established, however, that the application had not been processed and/or forwarded to QRIC for review prior to his riding at Dalby.”

Fazackerley was subsequently fined $2000.


There is legislation before state parliament to abolish the appeals system in favour of a three-person appeals board to more quickly assess matters.

https://qric.qld.gov.au/wp-content/uploads/2022/05/Stewards-Report-Nathan-Fazackerley.pdf

ENDS

Strange that the stewards report wasn't picked up by my eagle eyes assuming it was posted on the QRIC site on the date mentioned my guess is that it was a late inclusion.

the fact that the CM published the story today supports my assumption it was a late entry to the QRIC site.

In this case QCAT had his application befor he rode at Dalby but didn't forward it to QRIC in time for its tick of approval so is it usual for QRIC to notify the applicant that it has no objection to a stay or is it QCAT that informs the applicant.

In order to be properly informed I have asked QRIC the question .

Reply FROM QRIC on the procedures involved in licensees seeking a stay of proceedings following alleged infringement of the rules.


In short, it is the responsibility of the person applying for a stay to:
(i)   ensure they meet all filing requirements in respect of the stay application (this is with QCAT)
(ii)   serve a copy of the stay application on QRIC (and if a QCAT review application, this application also needs to be served on us.  If it’s a stay application relating to an internal review application, we will already have notice of this)

It is QCAT that ultimately issues any decision in respect of the stay application - this can occur either by a consent order application filed by the parties (i.e. QRIC consents to the stay being granted) or, where QRIC opposes the stay, following a hearing before QCAT.

There is no specific or usual timeframe for stay applications to be considered, however due to the nature of the application, they are a priority.

ENDS

In the case of Nathan Frazackerley it has been reported that he was suspended on 6 April and only applied  to QCAT for a stay on 20th April he apparently assumed that he was clear to ride at Dalby on 23 April as it turned out he hadn't been given the green light and on the facts and circumstances he has nobody to blame but hisself for the penalty..... by the same token stewards at Dalby should have been aware of the suspension and presumably thinking it was on 6th April he would have served his time ...there's nothing to say whether the stay was subsequently approved or if the penalty of $2000 is the end of it ..I notice he has had a few rides recently.
