The reason the results of Internal Reviews haven't appeared publicly on the QRIC website is that the QRIC legal team has been busy working through the numerous reviews in recent weeks while also preparing for QCAT hearings. .......posting Internal Reviews should be attended to in the next few days...there'll be a lot of reading apparently as nothing posted since September.

QRIC Calls On Debtors To Pay Up
13 December 2017
The Queensland Racing Integrity Commissioner is urging the Commission’s outstanding debtors to
pay up before the Christmas-New Year holiday is over.
“We have a list of more than 170 racing industry participants across Queensland who combined owe
the Commission more than $100,000 in fees and fines,” Commissioner Ross Barnett said.
“This is a comparatively small number given there are about 6,000 licensees in the state, but some
of these debts are greater than 90 days old, with some invoices remaining unpaid for more than a
year.
“But in the spirit of the season, we have suspended our efforts to recover the outstanding amounts
until the New Year and I would like people to do the right thing and settle up their accounts
voluntarily,” Commissioner Barnett said.
“If they’re still on our list of outstanding debtors by the time the Commission’s offices reopen after
the holiday break then I will have to consider my options, including licence suspensions.”
The Commission is empowered by the Licensing Scheme Standard to immediately suspend any
licence where a licence holder fails to pay a debt owed to the Commission within 30 days or such
other period of time agreed between the Commission and the licence holder.
“This money is owed to the people of Queensland through the Commission as a statutory body and
we have been very patient in dealing with people up to this point,” Commissioner Barnett said.
“It appears some people may be confusing kindness with weakness and are simply ignoring us.”
Some individual participants owe the Commission between $5,000 and $8,000 each.
“We know from their racing successes that most of these people have the capacity to pay but choose
to delay doing so,” Commissioner Barnett said.
“I would urge our debtors to pay what they owe or enter into payment plans before they find
themselves being called upon to demonstrate why their licences should not be suspended.”
Payment arrangements can be made by contacting the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission
on 1300 087 021.
ENDS

Must try and find the Forfeits List some interesting names and debts last time I looked....I doubt they'll be digging deep as a result of the appeal by Mr Barnett and if on the List they wouldn't be able to ride train or strap for a living.

Thanks for the TIP CJI knew it was available but needed GOOGLE to find it. :thumbsup:

Some well known names on the list including those still racing in NSW and Victoria it appears that there's little reciprocity on these matters despite AR rules .

I recall one training partnership then domiciled in Victoria owing a large amount to QRL but inquiries to RVL resulted in no action being taken I think their reply was the subject trainer disputed the debt and that's all there was eventually there was a bankruptcy.

Perhaps is the policy they need . .

I see one owing about $7K in total . . roughly prize money for a bush race

Obviously left the industry . .  and owing $7K is a pretty big incentive not to return

QRIC Announces New Director Of Licensing And Stewarding
20 December 2017
The Queensland Racing Integrity Commissioner has announced the appointment of a new Director
of Licensing and Stewarding.

“I’m pleased to announce that Ms Ali Wade has been appointed to the position following an open
merit recruitment and selection process that attracted international interest,” Commissioner Ross
Barnett said.

“Ms Wade has acted in the role in a relieving capacity for much of the past year after transitioning to
the Commission as Manager of Licensing and Registration.

“Prior to that, she worked at Racing Queensland in several senior management roles including
Senior Manager of Stewarding and Integrity Operations after joining that organisation in 2006,”
Commissioner Barnett said.

The Director of Licensing and Stewarding is tasked with overseeing the work of 35 stewards across
Queensland and the licensing and registration teams.

“Ms Wade comes to the role at a time of significant change in the racing industry, including greater
community expectations for the welfare of animals and the integrity of the three codes of
thoroughbred, harness and greyhound racing,” Commissioner Barnett said.

“I would like to thank the chief steward for Racing Victoria Mr Terry Bailey and the former chief
steward for Racing NSW Mr Ray Murrihy for participating on the selection panel,” Commissioner
Barnett said.

Ms Wade says she’s looking forward to continuing in the role and to ensuring Queensland’s racing
industry maintains the highest standards for integrity and animal welfare.

“This is a great honour and I’d like to give special mention to the support I have received from the
chief stipendiary steward for thoroughbreds Mr Allan Reardon,” Ms Wade said.

“I’m looking forward to a busy year ahead commencing with one of the biggest thoroughbred events
on the calendar which is the Magic Millions carnival on the Gold Coast next month.

“We will also soon begin the process of finding the right people to fill key vacancies including the
positions of chief stipendiary steward for both the harness and greyhound codes.”
ENDS

That explains Poleline Pete's piece that Terry Bailey and Ray Murrihy had been called on by Mr Barnett not to run the place but to constitute the selection panel.

Good Luck to Ms Wade could be a first for the females. :thumbsup:

Don't bother looking for recent Internal Review decisions on the QRIC website ......there's nothing to see.......supposedly the decisions would remain there for 6 months and then be removed so there ought to be the latest lot published in September still available.....but they've all gone.

This is from the QRIC IR section.

In the interests of transparency, high level information about internal review decisions will be published after an internal review is finalised. Internal review decisions will remain on the QRIC website for a period of six months.

Date of decision   Name of applicant (s)   Original decision and penalty   Final outcome
There are no posts of this type and/or category.

I'm hearing Former Chief Harness Stipe David Farquharson has won his case and QRIC have been ordered to reinstate him, they also need to pay him any money lost due to his sacking.

You know if that is correct, the question I have is how does someone get "empowered" to a point that they feel they can sack someone and it turns out that they are wrong.

Sacking anyone is a serious issue - doesn't matter if it is the Chief Steward or the person who washes the windows.

Some people spend their whole lives seeking "empowered" positions and when they get there they go and do something like that.

I don't know any of the parties involved in this case and am not pushing anyone's barrow. Just noticed in the workplace (in general) that a lot of people get "empowered" and they have NFI what they are doing - but that's OK because they are getting the big bucks. No doubt the sacker will blame someone else.

INDUSTRY WANTS ANSWERS FROM QRIC ON INTERNAL REVIEW CHANGES

MICHAEL G sent this interesting email about internal review decision at QRIC:

‘AS a keen observer of racing, I am interested as to why the apparent current practice by QRIC to (a) not inform industry participants of those decisions for which an application for an internal review has been made or (b) no longer publish the outcomes of internal reviews on its website, and the reasons for this change of tact.  The last updates appear to have been published back in November?

I mention this for two reasons.

Firstly, it appears contrary to QRIC's own proclamation, and not in the industry's best interests in that internal reviews, if they still occur, is not presently a transparent process.

Publishing of QRIC internal review decisions

The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission has modified the publishing sequence of internal review decisions following a consideration of the legal processes involved.

The internal review decision summary outcome (i.e. original decision affirmed, or original decision amended and substituted with x penalty or original decision overturned no penalty imposed) will still be published on our website as soon as the decision is handed down and the applicant will still be provided with the full decision immediately as occurs now.

The full decision will now be published on the QRIC website after the applicant has either accepted the decision or exhausted any legal appeal options. If the applicant does not appeal the decision to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal, the complete review decision will be published after the expiration of the 28 day appeal period.

In the interests of transparency, high level information about internal review decisions will be published after an internal review is finalised. Internal review decisions will remain on the QRIC website for a period of six months.

Secondly, I would have thought such information greatly benefits the industry through the education of participants as well as the public gaining confidence in decision making.  It would also provide the added benefit of stifling unhelpful debate and unnecessary innuendo.

On the other hand has QRIC concerns the process of internal reviews is procedurally unsafe?

Either way, I suggest QRIC should inform the industry, it was created to serve.’

EDITOR’S NOTE: We would welcome a response from QRIC but previous requests for replies to contentious issues have been greeted with brick walls.

From LGHR today

RESPONSE FROM QRIC TO QUESTIONS FROM LGHR CONTRIBUTORS

THE Queensland Racing Integrity Commission has reassured concerned industry stakeholders that they are aware of allegations that information is being illegally transferred from racetracks to a major gambling syndicate.

Letsgohorseracing sent a series of questions to QRIC Commissioner Ross Barnett who referred these to Director of Licensing and Stewarding Ali Wade. We thank them on behalf of our readers for their prompt response and transparency on this issue.

Readers have asked LGHR to try and get some answers from QRIC about a number of issues.

The first question they wanted us to ask was: ‘Are you aware of the alleged activities on Queensland TAB tracks of associates of one of Australia’s biggest punters and allegations that they are transmitting information to him illegally?’

QRIC replied: “We are aware of the individuals (being) named and many others that actively participate in racing. We are not in a position to comment on any investigation on ongoing monitoring activities which will continue to increase with the assistance of the Queensland Racing Crime Squad and recently established intelligence unit within QRIC.”

LGHR question: “If so, what is being done to curtail this activitiy and more so has a photographer been called upon to show cause why his media credentials should not be removed?”

QRIC reply: “Any accreditation of Media is a matter for Racing Queensland.”

LGHR question: “Have any instruction been received from Racing Queensland that stewards cannot take action against these people because of the turnover (this gambling syndicate) is responsible for on the Queensland TAB (UBET). That is the scuttlebutt doing the rounds.

QRIC reply: “No.”

A QRIC spokesman added: “One of the challenges we face is monitoring information that is open to the general public on an immediate international platform through the use of many different telecommunication devices to when it may cross over into more nefarious activities that may either be a breach of the Rules of Racing or potentially illegal activity.

“We monitor and will continue to monitor licensees online activities in racing, specifically jockeys and remind every that should they know of or encounter any suspicious activities please report to CRIMESTOPPERS.”

ON behalf of readers we also expressed concerns to RQ over the Media Accreditation held by two individuals. RQ came back to us late in the day and we will publish their response and our thoughts on this in an upcoming Whinge. ENDS

Another question that another reader previously asked  but was overlooked apparently or not asked is  where are the Internal Review Decisions...nothing since September and those that were up were removed before the stated time frame of 6 months.

Internal review decisions in December are up on the QRIC website  two for horseracing and two for the dishlickers.


Kelly Gates and Rebecca Williams  jockeys........Kelly got up but Rebecca copped a $200 fine for not fulfilling riding engagements in effect she was double booked at two venues and although she did her best to notify the trainer it was held she should have acted sooner before declarations of riders.

Greyhounds.
Mick Boody got lumbered for allegedly describing an employee of the BGRC "a bitch" to one of his associates in a private conversation which was overheard and reported to stewards he copped a fine.

Gary Keep former well known turf & harness racing writer lost his appeal although  no personal penalty imposed but the dog was disqualified and winning prize money forfeited  after his dog returned a positive to Hyosine which was inadvertently ingested from plants on Gary's property.

The world has  dead set gone mad. What is this rubbish that Birchley has given an undertaking not to race in Victoria ? Gee I thought if you were barred from anywhere , you were simply barred. If  he can train in Queensland then logic decrees that Vasil and Smerdon should also be able to set up shop in Queensland.

Sobig, I accept you make a good point. But if I have thirty horses to train in Queensland , can I ask and expect permission for Smerdon to train them bearing in mind it is all "voluntary " at present ? If the answer is  No , then why does Birchley still have a license.?

Bet it’s not worth it
A BRISBANE man has been charged with making hundreds of thousands of dollars from fraudulent bets.

Police allege the 31-year-old fraudulently gained more than $150,000 from betting outcomes, as well as using his status as the employee of a betting company to channel money and place late bets on races around the country. Detectives from the Queensland Racing Crime Squad are investigating whether some of the money was used to invest in greyhound and thoroughbred racehorse syndicates.

I'm trying to get my head around that.

He used his status as the employee of a betting company to place late bets?

I assume late here means after the race. I'd like to know the betting company and the bets he placed so I can make a claim if it is a parimutuel pool and I had a bet in the race.

Beggars belief.

And what a strange thing to tack on to the end of the report about investing in syndicates! Who cares???
