Yes. I wanted to read the stewards report about Race 8 and watch the video replay to check and see if my "in the running" opinion that the jockey on Too Good To Refuse seemed to lack any interest in until the last little bit of the race was confirmed.

Not only are the stewards reports not there, but the replay of race 8 is a noisy still of another race.

Why do I get so suspicious - there was one like this last week very similar  :chin:

Ride on Too Good To Refuse never got a mention. Watched the replay. My first viewing was correct. It was a "jaw dropping" ride. That's all I've got to say.   ())=(

Apprentice J Hodge charged with failing to notice an irregular gait lameness in the hind leg when riding Recompence to the barrier...the horse was retired from the race and euthanized suffering a fractured pelvis...young Hodge was outed for 3 months by stewards but succeeded in having his penalty reduced to one month.

I remember another Recompense which is the correct spelling it was either owned by Herb Joseph or maybe Joe Murphy....many years ago

INQUIRY FINALLY BEING HELD INTO RQ POSITIVE EIGHT MONTHS AGO

INDUSTRY observers have questioned why it has taken so long for Racing Queensland to get their act together and proceed with positive swab hearings involving a Toowoomba stable.

An inquiry into two positives taken from horses trained by Ben Currie will finally be heard in Brisbane next week.

It is an amazing EIGHT MONTHS since the first positive sample relating to the steroid boldenone was returned by Tints after that horse was unplaced at Rockhampton back on April 8.

The other irregularity involving methamphetamine was returned by Party Till Dawn, a six length winner at Toowoomba on July 16.

Stakeholders have highlighted how other swab inquiries have been held much quicker and want to know why this one took so long. The ball is in the hands of the new all transparent Queensland Racing Integrity Commission to show that the industry is a level playing field and explain why the delay occurred.

So the QRIC is posing a few questions among licencees. Main one is why no one can ever get to talk to anyone there at the regally set out HQ. Seems the enquiry line leads to nothing, no on ever answers the phone and messages left are never followed up. One licencee rang 6 times in one day and could never get a real person, his messages was finally answered 4 days after the initial attempts to talk to someone. Suppose staff there was trying to work out what they are supposed to eb doing, answering licencees phone calls is not on the list of essential chores.

Communication is not one of there stronger points or is it even in the things to do list.
Open & transparent - dont think so.
Lack of information to stakeholders - certainly.

Separation of duties has made absolutely no difference to those on the other side of the fence.
If anything it is a lot worse.

Another suspension reported by QRIC Ross "The Boss" Barnett ..that makes it one all... head of racing integrity Jamie Dart now Harness racing chief steward David Farquson :o

QUEENSLAND’S highest ranking harness racing steward David Farquson  Farquharson,  has been suspended until further notice by Queensland Racing integrity commissioner Ross Barnett.
Barnett gave no details for the ban, other than to say it followed “an investigation into a matter reported by a participant in the racing industry’’.

This farce gets worse. Only in Queensland would someone set up an Integrity Section and get the Queensland Police to run it. I wonder if the name " Fitzgerald " rings any bells with these current politicians ? Not to mention the Minister is a member of the Bellino family who just happens to be  a former
co-Director of Companies associated with the Chairman of RQ she appointed. And they seriously expect participants in this Industry to think they are pushing the integrity barrow. Fair dinkum it justs gets sillier.

QRIC is listed on QCAT's daily hearing list for a compulsory conference today involving trainers Lyn Paton and Rochelle Smith who were charged with cobalt positives and penalised but the former Racing Disciplinary Appeals Board upheld both appeals on a technicality which from memory involved confirmation certificates being issued by the same laboratory which tested the samples originally.

Finally the decision has been made available on the website.

I got a headache reading this decision..... I think it's likely there'll be an application to QCAT by RQ or the QRIC whichever  to get the matter sorted...both positives were well over the threshold. :o

Ben Currie fined $6000 for positive


8 hours ago by AAP

   

Toowoomba trainer Ben Currie has been fined $6000 for presenting a horse to race with a prohibited substance in its system earlier this year.

 However, stewards adjourned a second inquiry involving Currie until next week.

 After an initial hearing on Wednesday, stewards charged Currie after Tints returned a positive swab to the steroid boldenone at Rockhampton on April 8.

 Currie pleaded not guilty but after taking lengthy evidence stewards found otherwise and fined him $6000.

 Chief steward Allan Reardon said Currie had been charged with presenting a horse with a prohibited substance which usually carried a fine.

 The trainer had not been charged with the more serious administration of a steroid which could carry an automatic disqualification.

 Reardon said there was no evidence to support an administration charge in Currie's case.

Stewards also took evidence involving a positive to a methamphetamine allegedly found in a swab from Party Till Dawn after she won at Toowoomba on July 16.

 Reardon said that inquiry was adjourned until next Wednesday so other evidence could be presented.

How silly can someone be giving  an illegal substance to a horse  with that name and hope it goes unnoticed.

You'd have a far better chance with a horse called Mother Superior rather than  Party Till Dawn. :whistle:

Ben Currie guilty on second charge

Posted by: AAP+
Filled in: Horse Racing News | 21/12/2016 at 5:12pm


Toowoomba trainer Ben Currie has been found guilty of a charge involving a positive swab for the second time in a week.

Last week Currie was fined $6000 after he was found guilty of presenting Tints to race at Rockhampton in April with the prohibited steroid boldenone in her system.

Currie pleaded not guilty.

However, stewards adjourned a second inquiry into an alleged positive swab returned by Party Till Dawn when she won at Toowoomba on July16.

Queensland Racing Integrity Commission stewards resumed the inquiry on Wednesday and found Currie guilty of a second charge of presenting a horse to race with a prohibited substance in its system.

He had again pleaded not guilty.

QRIC Commissioner Ross Barnett said Party Till Dawn had returned a positive sample to methamphetamine.

He said stewards would consider submissions from Currie and deliver a sentence at a later date.

Barnett said as the stewards’ findings could be subject to appeal it was not appropriate to comment further.

Presenting a horse to race with a prohibited substance is a lesser charge than administering a prohibited substance.

It can carry various penalties ranging from a fine to disqualification.

Clearing his desk before the Christmas break Mr Ashby has been busy although no joy for the appellants Tiffani Brooker lucky to escape an increased penalty for causing interference ......a greyhound trainer fined $200 for failure to keep a treatment book........and an apprentice refused an upgrade to provincial license.

Rochelle Smith v QRIC was listed for a QCAT hearing on 23/12 ...previously both Smith and Lyn Paton were listed to attend  a compulsory conference at QCAT no doubt the application would have been filed by QRIC following both women beating cobalt charges before the defunct RDB.

As reported previously trainer Ben Currie has had two positives in a week the first Tints resulted in a penalty of $6K whilst the second Party Till Dawn came up positive to Meth this resulted in a fine of $9K Currie is confident he can beat the charges on technical grounds when it goes up to the Internal Reviewer.........which will be a reversal of fortune .....Mr Ashby invariably upholds the stewards decisions.......possibly why Currie mentioned the next level QCAT if the first one fails.....hot Curry doesn't appeal to all tastes.

Mr Ashby must be on hols as John Schreck has undertaken the two most recent reviews for QRIC.

Some old fashioned common sense in both ......reducing the penalty in the case of S. Palmer for an altercation in the jockeys' room from $500 to $250 and extending the indentures of apprentice S Fawke on compassionate grounds.
