A check of the lavish QRIC website, the people that on multi million dollar deal to supervise racing reveals there is no stewards reports for any greyhound meeting anywhere in queensland, if the ipswich fiasco is any guide you can easily understand why they wouldnt want to publicise their shortfallings or inability to patrol and control anything

Trainer Liam Birchley – Show Cause Notice (Update 5 March 2018)
   
Racing NSW Stewards today received oral submissions from barrister Mr M GrantTaylor QC on behalf of licensed trainer Mr L Birchley to supplement written submissions from Mr Travis Shultz, solicitor for trainer Mr Liam Birchley, in response to a show cause notice issued to Mr Birchley on 26 February 2018.

Mr Grant-Taylor’s principal submission was that due to the weakness in the case against his client and in the absence of any further evidence, his client’s prospects of defeating the charge issued under AR175(a) by Racing Victoria Stewards were “stratospheric”.

Therefore, by Racing NSW Stewards continuing to invoke the provisions of AR50 against his client, will unfairly continue to damage his reputation and financially affect Mr Birchley’s business.

Racing NSW Stewards have carefully considered the additional oral submissions made on behalf of Mr Birchley by Mr Grant-Taylor, in conjunction with the written submissions received on Tuesday, 27 February 2018 and the brief of evidence provided by RVL in respect to the Lovani investigation.

It is not the role of Racing NSW Stewards to determine the merits of the charge issued against Mr Birchley under AR175(a). However, they are satisfied that the charge issued against Mr Birchley, as accepted by Mr Grant-Taylor, is a serious charge.

Further, Racing NSW Stewards are of the view that any hardship suffered by Mr Birchley by the invoking the provisions of AR50, is outweighed by the prejudice to, and undermining of, the image, interests and integrity of racing in NSW if he was permitted to nominate (and race) horses in NSW while the serious charge against him is yet to be determined.

In those circumstances, the “balance of convenience” is against Mr Birchley and, accordingly, Racing NSW Stewards rule that, acting under the provisions of AR50, nominations of horses trained by Mr Birchley will be declined to be received and/or rejected until the charges issued by RVL have been resolved.ENDS

That's that for the time being......seeing that NSW stewards declined to accept noms from Birchley how is it that Crack Me Up's nom was accepted whilst in Birchley's care??? the horse according to media reports was transferred to Bjorn Baker on the Thursday before it raced on Saturday and won at good odds.....a puzzle.

Not only is the QRIC totally incompetitent at running racing it cant even make up a story with at least 7 days notice....on RQ website stewards reports from March greyhound race days, there have been 10, QRIC only been able to post 3 reports. The fiasco last sunday week, March 7, where these highly paid QRIC stewards failed 8 times to identity two dogs, has not been reported as yet. You would think by now QRIC would have been able to make up some sort of story to clear their dumbo stewards who can't match numbers or ear brands.......god help racing what a bunch of useless highly paid failures.

Well I'll be.....Y gotta hand it to these dingbats at QRIC, they're professional at one thing....getting out of their own shithole, here is the stewards report from the Ipswich meeting when these top gun stewards failed 8 times to identify a dog....so when they compile stewards report on this disaster do they lay the blame at themselves, after all it was their fault they cant read a chip scanner or tell what an ear brand looks like, not on your nelly all thay had to say was.....
Race 1. NOVICE (1) - 288M Even start, with ORANGE OAK ROAD and WESTERN COMET marginally slow.  Approaching the 1st turn, ROCK THE ROAD and BLACK DRATTA collided, causing WESTERN COMET and ORANGE OAK ROAD to be checked and all greyhounds to lose ground.  Approaching the finishing line, SHE’S GOOD and HONEY TRAP collided, causing both greyhounds to be hampered. WESTERN COMET was not the correct greyhound for this race and was disqualified under Rule 64 (1).
SWABS TAKEN: HONEY TRAP – Post Race – Paul Graham
WESTERN COMET – Post Race – Keith Boan VET EXAMINATIONS: Nil
Race 2. SKY RACING MAIDEN HEAT 2 – 288M BLACKPEARL GIRL and WILDASH KAMILARO were best to begin, with CLICK COWAN and NEXT ONE slow.  Approaching the 1st turn, BLACKPEARL GIRL and SHESA DRATTA, causing both greyhounds to lose ground.
 WESTMEAD COMET was not the correct greyhound  and disqualified under Rule 64 (1) before giving the all clear, results were amended VET EXAMINATIONS: Nil

.........You just gotta shake your head, I guess which idiot failed in his basic duties is still in the employ of QRIC. :rant:

I notice that one of the officiating Stewards was a K Adams. Maybe Stan Still will know if this is the same steward you find when you go to "Google " and google    ' K Adams NSW harness Steward ' ? Can you enlighten us regards that ?

I can help, Yep that's him and he was also a former Harness Steward here many years ago, I'm sure he was dismissed from here for being hopeless and now he's back. I remember him as a starter for Harness Starting 2 races from the wrong distance.

Is this the same bloke?

https://hrblogincyberspace.wordpress.com/2009/02/19/first-female-trots-steward-wins-harassment-case/

To follow up on the outcome .......Barbara Scott did get her job back in NSW ......eventually went to SAHR as Chief Steward in 2014 and now is Chief Steward in WA from what I have read( (I don't know her personally) she's a very strong & competent woman and deserves to be where she is. :thumbsup:

Some catching up on the results of Internal Reviews during January & February.........mostly decisions confirmed or amended ...jockeys given the benefit of the doubt in two appeals the most interesting is the decision to reduce trainer Lex Fraser's period of disqualification for effectively allowing an unlicensed person Ron Maund to train horses supposedly under Fraser's care.... one of which General Cos  landed a spectacular plunge $51 to $5 or thereabouts....all this came about because of a complaint alleging Maund was in arrears of rent amounting to some $19K......the other decision out of the ordinary run of the mill appeals concerns allowing Ms Gruenefeld's appeal to be licensed against the wishes of the Chief steward.

Media release
6 April 2018
QRIC out in force at Toowoomba Weetwood
The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) has ensured the public and the racing in
industry that it will be out in force to support the integrity of the Toowoomba Weetwood Handicap
tomorrow, 7 April.
Seen as the introduction to Queensland’s Winter Racing Carnival, QRIC’s Integrity Investigations
Team (ITT) has carried out a series of pre-race testing and will deliver pre-race swabs on race day,
all winners will be tested and if required targeted testing will also occur.

QRIC Commissioner Ross Barnett said it was essential the community had confidence in the
integrity of the Toowoomba meeting.
“As we work to ensure all racing events are run on a level playing field I want the betting public and
racing participants to know that we will be out in force with staff and resources on this important
race day,” Mr Barnett said.
“The commencement of the Winter Carnival in Queensland thoroughbred racing at Toowoomba’s
Clifford Park has again attracted a highly competitive racing program and the integrity of everyone
of those races is a high priority for QRIC.”
In preparation for the Weetwood Handicap the ITT has;
 Attended scheduled Thoroughbred race meetings at Ipswich on 4 April 2018, Dalby on 5
April 2018;
 Attended early track work at Clifford Park along with the Queensland Police Service Racing
Crime Squad;
 Carried out on course and off course stable inspections at Ipswich, Dalby and Toowoomba;
 Run compliance checks of industry participants;
 Carried out pre-race and out of competition swabs of horses leading up to and including the
Ipswich and Dalby meetings and the Weetwood Handicap.
Commissioner Barnett said the presence of integrity officers at high profile race meetings in the
days leading up to the race and on race day itself was an important role for the QRIC to ensure the
integrity of racing in Queensland.
ENDS.

Keeping a close eye on the locals .......suggests they know or suspect something is going on ......and they're going to stop it........there might be some unexpected results if the any of the runners don't get treated ...............  now everyone knows the watchers are watching.

Media release
7 April 2018
QRIC enquires into suspicious activity at Currie stable
The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Stewards have opened an inquiry into
suspicious activity observed at the stable of Toowoomba trainer Ben Currie this morning.

QRIC Commissioner Ross Barnett said members of the QRIC’s Integrity Investigations Team (ITT)
observed a stable employee of Toowoomba trainer Ben Currie acting suspiciously in the vicinity of
a number of thoroughbred race horses this morning, some of which are racing at today’s
Toowoomba Weetwood Handicap.

“IIT officers have interviewed the employee and trainers Mark Currie and Ben Currie about their
observations and have also seized some items from the stable including CCTV equipment which
they believe will assist them in their enquiries,” he said.

“Todays’ Toowoomba Chairman of Stewards has opened an inquiry and taken initial evidence from
the stable employee, Mark Currie and Ben Currie and a Commission veterinarian has taken saliva,
urine and blood samples from seven horses.

“At this time there is not sufficient evidence to warrant the disqualification of the runners from
racing at Toowoomba today, but if subsequent enquiries determine there has been the
administration of race day treatment that contravenes the rules of racing, these horses may be
subsequently disqualified.

“This matter will be vigorously pursued to establish the facts of todays’ alleged incident,” Mr
Barnett said.

Further information will be released when it becomes available.
ENDS..
CCTV cameras that'll be interesting to see what's recorded. :/

Another QCAT loss for the stipes apprentice  S Lacy running & handling appeal got up at QCAT.....the  only report is from justracing.com .au....decision not yet on the Supreme Court site....and QRIC never report any decisions from that (QCAT) august body.

https://www.qric.qld.gov.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/0057-17-stephanie-lacy-internal-review-decision-07082017.pdf

Reading the Internal review I have to wonder how the learned QCAT member upheld Lacy's appeal.......looking forward to seeing how he did it. :chin:

I'll try to find the race in question and have a looksee.

http://www.racingqueensland.com.au/racing-and-results/full-calendar/thoroughbred/meeting/scst/20170723

R7 She didn't appear to be very interested just sat there until the race was allover I think the stewards got it right but lost on presentation possibly.

Racenet  punters' comments not very flattering of the trainer and jockey.

STEWARD COMMENT
Apprentice S. Lacy reported that her mount laid out throughout the event and under pressure in the home straight.

STARTING PRICE $10

https://justracing.com.au/2018/04/16/lacy-wins-appeal-on-handling-case/


Finally the decision by the learned QCAT  member Paratz is available he accepted Lacy's explanation discounted the IR and the stewards observations possibly watched the video and saw the horse hanging out ...something I must confess was not evident to my untrained eye...still that's the end of it.

Media release
27 April 2018
Deputy Commissioner appointed for QRIC
The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) has welcomed the appointment of Mr Mark
Ainsworth as its first Deputy Commissioner.

The QRIC was established through the Racing Integrity Act 2016 and commenced on the 1 July
2016 with Mr Ross Barnett appointed to lead in the role of Commissioner.

A Detective Superintendent with the Queensland Police Service and currently working at the Crime
and Corruption Commission (CCC) Mr Ainsworth has been appointed as the QRIC Deputy
Commissioner following a national open merit recruitment process.

Commissioner Ross Barnett said Mr Ainsworth was well credentialed to take on this important role.

“As Director, Corruption Operations, Mr Ainsworth has been leading sensitive CCC investigations
and supporting the Chairman in promoting the highest standards of integrity and ethics in the public
sector,” Mr Barnett said.

“He is a distinguished police officer. He has devoted his career to serving the people of Queensland
and has modelled the highest standards of professional integrity and accountability, which has been
reflected in the roles he has undertaken during his career.

“Leading the Queensland Police Service Taskforce into Greyhound Racing and subsequently
performing the role of Integrity Advisor to Racing Queensland at the request of the then Minister for
Racing, Mr Ainsworth has an in-depth understanding of the critical role of the Deputy Commissioner
in supporting the Commissioner to implement strategies to enhance confidence in the racing
industry.

“Through this work, Mr Ainsworth has established networks with key industry stakeholders including
the RSPCA.”

Receiving the Australian Police Medal in the 2013 Australia Day honours list, he was recognised for
his achievements as a police officer including his role in Assisting the Commission of Inquiry into the
Queensland 2011 floods.

The Citation accompanying the medal recognised his outstanding leadership qualities, expertise and
professionalism.

Mr Ainsworth’s career achievements are complemented by his service to community organisations.

He is a former Director and a founding board member of the Allison-Baden Clay Foundation and an
independent member of the Brisbane Lions AFL Integrity Committee.

“Mr Ainsworth’s leadership qualities and commitment to the highest standards of integrity and
professionalism, make him ideal for appointment to the role of Deputy Commissioner,” Mr Barnett
said.
ENDS.

Can someone at QRIC check the brandings for the race 3 winner at Townsville today?

I want to see if it is the same horse that was beaten 9 lengths at 300-1 over the course and distance last start.

Huge class drop from 2yo HCP ($30K) to 2yo MDN ($14K)

3rd up from 2mth off . . .

1st up / bog . . 2nd up / see above

1 200km round trip for stable, so must have been given some hope

2kg wt drop assuming that Amanda T can ride @ that wt.

Video shows that it was not that bad a run L-S in the better company

2yo's can improve their own weight when the 'penny drops'



BUT . . sadly
It was not on my list

I'll check the Stipes Report to see if they queried the improvement

(S.R) . . Amanda actually weighed in 0.5kg over and was 'blued' $200 . . no query on improve

It appears the Internal Reviewer has gone on long service leave which he would  have had to have  carried over from his previous employer in Victoria  as he hasn't been in Qld long enough to accrue any.......or though unlikely he's on strike as  there's no published IR since February.......hard to believe the licensees have accepted their penalties with good grace and have taken gardening leave.

That was tongue in cheek mate .....a stir .....but there's movement....... lots of reports of Internal Reviews suddenly appeared overnight on the QRIC website which I'll post a link to momentarily.

https://www.qric.qld.gov.au/internal-reviews/harness/

https://www.qric.qld.gov.au/internal-reviews/greyhound/

Mostly the IR found for the stewards upholding the charge and penalty confirmed......but few of the decisions had reasons attached just the bare decision that's not good enough . :thumbsd:
