Media release 17 July 2018 QRIC issues animal welfare direction on Mackay participants
 Two Mackay Harness racing participants have been directed to get immediate veterinary care for horses found to be in a poor condition.
 On Saturday morning 14 July, the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Integrity Investigation Team (IIT) conducted race day inspections prior to the Mackay races at a number of properties in the area.
 Deputy Commissioner Mark Ainsworth said while inspecting an East Mackay property the IIT found two Standardbred horses in a poor physical condition and issued an Animal Welfare Direction Notice to two local people.
“The direction required the Harness racing participants to seek veterinary attention for the two Standardbreds as well as a number of other requirements associated with improving the conditions for the animals,” Mr Ainsworth said. “As part of the ‘anywhere anytime strategy’, QRIC staff will continue to conduct stable and kennel inspections to ensure the welfare of racing animals and compliance with the rules of racing.” END

Outback tradition hits a hurdle as punters warned off betting
EXCLUSIVE
STEVEN WARDILL
QUEENSLAND’S iconic outback camel races have hit a major hump after officials discovered betting on the meets was illegal.
Punters at last weekend’s camel races in Bedourie were left spitting when two bookmakers who attended the event were warned off taking wagers by racing officials.
The Palaszczuk Government, Racing Queensland and the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission could not explain yesterday whether punting on camel racing had been inadvertently outlawed under recent reforms or whether the illegality had been accidentally overlooked for decades.
Cane toad and cockroach races, however, are not expected to be affected.
The camel betting conundrum has sent authorities scrambling to find a solution ahead of this weekend’s meet in the tiny outback township of Boulia, as well as next weekend’s Winton meet.
Thousands will descend on Boulia’s renowned event, which is in its 22nd year.
Racing Queensland has taken the extraordinary step of declaring the Boulia Camel Races a “sporting contingency” so bookmakers can legally set odds and take bets. Boulia Camel Races committee member Beck Britton told The Courier-Mail yesterday that the issue of whether wagering would be allowed had been touch-and-go all week.
Ms Britton said a suggestion that stewards, at a cost of $3000, would be required would not have been possible for the not-for-profit event.
“That’s been a controversial issue over the last week,” she said.
“At Bedourie Camel Races last weekend, bookmakers were advised they were not allowed to take bets on the camel races.”
Ms Britton said organisers had now been told that punting would proceed.
Racing Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said he only became aware of the issue after former Nationals MP Vaughan Johnson raised the alarm.
He said he was determined to ensure the great outback tradition of camel racing continued.

Someone told me that . . HYPOCRISY is alive and well . . I assume that this is the name of a camel

"Nelson's Eye" has been hard to beat at previous carnivals . . and "Common Sense" was a late scratching at Bedourie

Penalty 3 months DQ confirmed assisting to administer substance on race day Ben Currie stablehand....I feel some sympathy for this guy he was set up and had nowhere to go he was at a considerable disadvantage trying not to put his boss in but the stewards had the video evidence he was only a bit player helping another employee who administered the paste Boost to several of the stable's runners extract from Mr Ashby's decision below:-

"The reviewer acknowledges the position the Applicant was placed in, particular to his future employment, whereby he stated “I'll never get a job in the industry again, if I'm classed as a narc, will I?” 27 Notwithstanding, the Applicant was forewarned on multiple occasions of the repercussions in providing false and/or misleading evidence. The reviewer acknowledges that, as with any breach of the Australian Rules of Racing, any penalty imposed will attract some form of hardship which must be evenly weighed against the degree of the offence. The reviewer, in considering the aforementioned factors and gravity of the situation, finds the penalty is reflective of the evidence and takes into account the mitigating circumstances and therefore is not satisfied a reduction in penalty is proven in the circumstances and accordingly confirms the original decision on charge and penalty."

https://www.qric.qld.gov.au/decision/mark-currie/

2 year DQ penalty confirmed no reasons for decision have been  published presumably due to the appellant going to QCAT and according to media bypassing QRIC Internal Review.

BEN’S SEVEN ALL CLEAR
EACH of the seven horses tested in the Weetwood day raid of Ben Currie’s Toowoomba stable have been cleared of having any prohibited substances in their system.

The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission alleged the seven horses had been illegally treated on the morning of the race, and at subsequent inquiries Currie’s father Mark was disqualified for two years and stablehand Greg Britnell for 18 months after being found guilty of race-day treatments.

A hearing for Ben Currie is scheduled for August 13 when he faces charges emanating from the Weetwood day activities and other matters.

Queensland Racing Integrity Commissioner Ross Barnett said it was important to be transparent about the test results that had now been cleared of prohibited substances, but he also pointed out it was a separate matter from the allegations of race-day treatment. Prizemoney earnt by the horses in question, including Toowoomba Guineas winner Hang, has been paid.

Quite amazing the number of stable hands work riders who test positive to dope of one kind or another.

Giddy Up :beer:


The people who insist that workers undergo random drug and alcohol testing - are they subjected to the same tests themselves?

I always thought it would be a good idea to have all Australian politicians subjected to random alcohol and drug testing. They should be leading by example not ordering others to have to be subjected to this.

During the Estimates Committee hearing on the racing portfolio last week Mr Langbroek LNP asked Mr Barnett QRIC commissioner about how many charges had been made by QRIC and how many prosecutions have been successful ...the Commissioner explained that the Racing Crime Squad does not answer to him but he did reveal that 45 persons had been charged with 89 offences by the cops.....unfortunately Mr Langbroek accepted the answer and didn't think it necessary to press for a reply to his question how many of those charges had been prosecuted successfully....... so we are none the wiser.......there has been some media releases on prosecutions most of which appear to be still in progress.

We do know that only Barton Cockburn was convicted and fined $5K while Dayle March was not convicted nor was Leonard Cain who walked free on insufficient evidence.

Marsh Dobson charged with money laundering and  Mick Grant was charged with prior knowledge ...they may have not yet had their day in court...... while there a number of other harness racing persons arrested on which no further progress has been reported ...Shane Graham ...Vicki Rasmussen......Stuart Hunter and an unidentified man from Everton Park an alleged associate of Graham  were reported as facing match fixing charges as was Matthew Neilson also facing charges of perjury so in the absence of further and better particulars we are left to conclude that there has been only one successful prosecution....Barton Cockburn.

Media release
3 August 2018
QRIC supports Jockeys Trust at Brisbane Race Day
The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) is proud to support the National Jockey’s
Trust Brisbane Race Day at Doomben this Saturday 4 August.
The National Jockey’s Trust (NJT) is a public charitable trust established to provide financial
support and other benefits for jockeys and their families, especially through serious injury, illness
or death of a jockey.
Commissioner Ross Barnett said the Commission supported the work of the Jockey’s Trust who in
the event of a race fall where a rider is seriously injured they provided immediate help.
“This Saturday’s Brisbane Race Day in aid of the Trust is Queensland’s opportunity to support it
and for the second year, QRIC will sponsor a race on Saturday as part of the NJT fundraising
efforts to support the welfare of jockeys all over Australia,” he said.
“There are more than 840 registered jockeys in Australia and the Trust has assisted 300 jockeys
and their families, many of them Queenslanders, since its inception in 2004.
“This remarkable support for jockeys is to be commended and while we are always hopeful that
our participants will not be injured in the course of their work, it remains that around 200 Australian
riders are injured each year.”
END

That's a good news story I'll wear my NJT cap tomorrow at golf......and hope I don't get sunburnt.

Media Release
6 August 2018
Apprentice jockey suspended on betting charges
Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Stewards have today inquired into the
circumstances surrounding apprentice jockey Corey Bayliss betting on thoroughbred racing.
The Brisbane based metropolitan apprentice was today suspended from all riding engagements for
two months.
QRIC Commissioner Ross Barnett said on 29 June, Commission staff observed Mr Bayliss
wagering at the Breakfast Creek Hotel on two races that day at Geelong in Victoria and Moruya in
New South Wales.
“Mr Bayliss pleaded guilty to breaching AR 83(c) which specifies jockeys or apprentices may be
penalised if they bet, have an interest in a bet or facilitate a bet on any race,” he said.
“While this is a serious breach of Mr Bayliss’s licensing arrangements it is important that all jockeys
understand that the perception of betting on thoroughbred races is an integrity issue outlawed
under the Australian Rules of Racing.”
Mr Bayliss was supported today by his Master, Trainer Barry Lockwood and Racing Queensland
training department representative Rachel Bambry.
His two month suspension commenced today until 6 October 2018.
ENDS.

Two months suspension out till 6 October previously outed for 6 weeks for breach of R 135(b) an unacceptable effort to which he pleaded guilty but is on a stay pending an application for an Internal Review.......not going to make any difference now...the "not blameworthy excuse"doesn't apply to a betting offence.

David Hannay mouthpiece for previously unidentified "Everton Park punter" who was scooped up in the alleged harness race fixing charges an associate of Shane Graham has come out publicly stating his client Peter Poulsen has no case to answer...Poulsen owned horses trained by Graham have been stood down ......Nathan Exelby reports in the CM Friday.

Race-fix case tipped to fail
NATHAN EXELBY



LEGAL REP: Daniel Hannay.

THE lawyer representing accused harness identity Peter Poulsen has predicted the case will fall over, just as others have this year.

Poulsen was charged in relation to a race at Albion Park in July last year, along with licensees Shane Graham, Leonard Cain and Vicki Rasmussen.

Horses owned by Poulsen have been stood down and unable to race, as the case has been handballed several times to different prosecutors.

Police, backed by Queensland Racing Integrity Commission investigators, allege Poulsen, who owned another horse in the race, made a winning bet on Dapper after a conversation with Graham before the event, which they believe was evidence of fixing a race.

Poulsen’s legal counsel Daniel Hannay said the conversation his client had with Graham was no different to discussions owners and trainers would have all the time.

“Poulsen was the owner of January, which was in the race. (Graham) said January hadn’t been training well and also said the other favourite (Western Jewels) hadn’t been going well either,” Hannay said.

Graham suggested Poulsen “have something on Dapper”, which he did. He wagered $700 on Dapper to win, and also the same amount on January to win the race.

“The conversation Mr Poulsen had with Mr Graham wouldn’t amount to any criminal offence, let alone some type of concept of match fixing,” Hannay said.

“What has happened to my client could happen to any owner of any horse in Queensland.”

After originally being charged with match fixing, the prosecution has since altered the charge to include fraud.

Hannay believes the reason for the change is because other match-fixing cases have fallen over, and the police and QRIC were now trying to save face.


In April, match-fixing cases against Dayl March and Leonard Cain were thrown out of the Brisbane Magistrates Court, where both decisions cited a lack of evidence.

They were the first two match-fixing cases to be tried in court after Barton Coburn and Michael Grant pleaded guilty to charges in October 2017.

Hannay said his client’s horses had been banned from racing, making them worthless.

“That is all extra punishment prior to being found guilty in court. He hasn’t even got to trial yet,” he said.

Queensland Racing Integrity commissioner Ross Barnett said the actions of the Racing Crime Squad and police pursuing this investigation had been justified by three convictions, and denied they were left red-faced by the two that had been thrown out by the courts.

“Far from being embarrassed, I am proud of the efforts of the Racing Crime Squad and the commission staff in comprehensively and professionally investigating these matters,” Barnett said.

“This action has reassured the many honest harness participants that their legitimate concerns will be addressed and has increased wagering confidence in the sport.”

ENDS

Last I heard Barton Cockburn was found guilty fined $5k now we're told Mick Grant pleaded guilty probably got a slap on the wrist as no details have been trumpeted by QRIC and the third person has so far not been identified...on the facts outlined by Poulsen's counsel his client  looks long odds on to walk free and if so should he choose to take the next obvious step there's  the possibility of a case for compensation on the standing down of his horses.....QRIC Ross Barnett contacted by Nathan Exelby is maintaining a stiff upper lip in the face of adversity.

Queensland Racing Integrity Commission Stewards (QRIC) today inquired into a report that
Apprentice Corey Bayliss had been observed placing bets on thoroughbred races.
Apprentice Bayliss, in the presence of his master, licensed trainer Barry Lockwood and
Racheal Bambry, an employee of the Racing Queensland training department, pleaded
guilty to a charge under AR 83 (c); which reads;
Every jockey or apprentice may be penalised –
If he bet, or facilitates the making of, or has any interest in a bet on any
race or contingency relating to thoroughbred racing, or if he be present in
the betting ring during any race meeting.
The specifics being that
Apprentice Corey Bayliss did on 29 June 2018 at the Breakfast Creek
Hotel place two (2) bets on thoroughbred races being “Missed Out” in
Race 8 at Geelong and “Amshcel” in Race 8 at Moruya.

In determining penalty, Stewards were mindful of Apprentice Bayliss’ guilty plea, personal
circumstances and penalty precedents. Stewards were also mindful of the negative impact
such actions have on the integrity of thoroughbred racing and the requirement to ensure that
a penalty acts as an appropriate deterrent. Apprentice Bayliss was suspended from riding in
races for a period of two months to commence immediately and expire 6 October 2018.
Stewards ordered that this penalty must be served cumulatively to any penalty that may
result from Apprentice Bayliss’ current internal review or further appeal of his recent
suspension under AR 135 (b).
Apprentice Bayliss was advised of his right to an internal reviewENDS

Caught in the act so to speak BUT the particulars are incorrect both horses ran third ........Missed Out at Moruya not Geelong and Amschel ran third at Geelong not Moruya...so in a court of law this technicality would possibly result in the charges being thrown out........more care needs to be taken if the charges are meant to stick....in this case I think despite the obvious errors it's unlikely to make any difference to the result.

Jockey Dale Smith makes most of legal loophole to ride despite being suspended
NATHAN EXELBY, The Courier-Mail
August 19, 2018 8:55pm
 
QUEENSLAND’S clunky appeal system broke new ground on Saturday when Dale Smith was permitted to resume riding mid-suspension.
Smith had appealed the severity of a 16 day suspension and had not ridden since August 5.
With three days still to run on the original suspension, Smith was permitted by QRIC legals to resume riding because the result of his internal review had not been determined.
It was argued by Smith’s representatives that if the internal review was successful he would have been disadvantaged by sitting out too long.
Now, if the internal review comes back confirming the stewards decision, it means he will only miss the one Saturday, instead of the two.
Apprentice Jackson Murphy is in the same boat, as he appealed the severity of a 15 day suspension incurred at Gatton on August 3 and is still waiting the result of his internal review.
It all boils down to how long it takes QRIC’s internal review to be handed down.
It is understood Smith posted his internal review, as opposed to lodging online and it then took some time to make its way to the internal reviewer.
You can’t blame Smith for using the loophole, but it’s the latest example of how the appeal system is in desperate need of an overhaul.
* * *

HAd a look for any recent Internal Reviews available on the QRIC website no racing decisions since June and no results on  harness racing since May this is unacceptable...Mr Ashby needs to get his finger out or be replaced with someone who can be relied on to deal with IR's quickly and effectively. :chair:
