Catching up on publishing a number of  Internal Reviews going back a while ...only one resulted in overturning the stewards decision the case of Trevor Rowe exonerated for using a twitch........jockey Skye Bogenhuber scored two 10 day suspensions to be served concurrently......she is injured and is reported to be recovering after sustaining a brain bleed....... Daryl Hansen fined $5K for a positive and an impressive case put forward by Jordan Grob all to no avail .....he's apprenticed to Michael Costa and if he rides as well as he argued his case he'll do well in the jockey ranks. :thumbsup:

Yet another disaster for the donkeys employed by QRIC on Saturday at Toowoomba. Nearly unbelievable (except it is QRIC ) that the wrong horse was signified as the fourth place getter at the metropolitan meeting in the last on Saturday. Don't these , and I will call them Stewards (I know a loose term ) ; satisfy themselves as to correct finishing order. This come a week after the same mob allowed the wrong horse  to start in a race in Rockhampton. It beggars belief how these bods in Queensland can't even get the most simple tasks right. No wonder we have enquiries stretching back over twelve months. "Integrity Commission " ? They cannot be serious. Cant even get identification process right or even at the very minimum the finishing order in the right sequence.

According to reports the judges entered the correct number 15 Cool Drafts in the system as running fourth but the semaphore came up with number 5 Curdled ...how thejudges and stewards didn't notice this is beyond belief...... the stewards who signified correct weight must have been blind to the finish as Cool Drafts was in the photo for third  and finished closest to them while Curdled finished 8th was back behind the placegetters  on the fence admittedly with no luck in running which is irrelevant to the mistake in their respective finishing positions.

https://www.racingqueensland.com.au/racing-and-results/full-calendar/thoroughbred/meeting/twba/20190406/race/9

"Following the declaration of correct weight, Stewards were notified by the Judges that an error had occurred with the semaphoring of the 4th placegetter. It was identified that, due to an inputting error, number 5 (CURDLED) was semaphored when in fact number 15 (COOL DRAFTS) had been placed 4th.  After confirming the correct placings Stewards, acting under AR. 214(4)(b), amended the placings accordingly.  In light of this incident, Stewards will ask the Toowoomba Turf Club to conduct a review into the judging process."

The judges and the stewards were at fault and when the runners returned to scale the jockeys on Cool Drafts and Curdled appear to speak to each other you would think they would have known which one finished ahead of the other....and should have spoken up.

The only saving grace is that TAB has decided to pay account holders on both First4's as has Ladbrokes and it is assumed the others will follow suit at this point UBET is stillshowing the wrong placings with the single dividend .

Ironic that  last week  QRIC issued a Media release trumpeting their presence at the Weetwood meeting on Saturday..virtually all hands on deck from the Chief Steward down yet the fiasco in posting the wrong horse as fourth in the last race escaped their attention.

How embarrassing red faces all round

Another Internal Review .....Harness racing this time concession driver Ben Woodsford 4 weeks for an unacceptable drive ......lucky he didn't get extended penalty for failing the spell check in his submission ....watching the replay he set the horse a task but would it have figured in the placings with a better or more conservative drive IMO no and Darrel Graham's drive wasn't much better.

"Race 7 - DARREN & BEC EBERT PACE | C5 TO C6 | 2280M

Stewards enquired into the driving tactics adopted by Ben Woodsford (Hot Dogma) in particular the amount of exertion placed on the gelding for the lead in the first 500m of the race. Hot Dogma, which had drawn in barrier three, challenged The Muse (Pete McMullen) and Hot Rod Heaven (Reece Maguire) for a leading position, however, with the advantage of the inside Hot Rod Heaven maintained the lead and The Muse raced outside that horse. Hot Dogma had shifted in towards the end of the back straight on the first occasion before being corrected by its driver. As a result Hot Rod Heaven was tightened down onto the marker pegs and the marker peg was displaced into the sulky of Corporal Luna (Grant Dixon). After negotiating the turn and after the completion of 200m, Ben Woodsford (Hot Dogma) again challenged for the lead and The Muse gained an advantage over Hot Rod Heaven, however, always maintained the lead with the advantage of the inside. Hot Dogma was then restrained in the front straight after the completion of 500m and remained in the position outside the leader until racing to the winning post with a lap remaining. Hot Dogma commenced to yield ground from the winning post with a lap remaining and finished a distant last beaten in excess of 100m. A subsequent veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities other than a slow post-race recovery indicative of a hard run. Ben Woodsford explained to stewards that his instructions were to work forward and lead if possible. Trainer Ross Fletcher advised Stewards that his instructions were to work forward without placing too much pressure upon Hot Dogma for the lead as the horse has a tendency to pull hard if excess exertion is placed on the gelding. After consideration Stewards charged Ben Woodsford under rule 149(2) for driving in an unacceptable manner by placing undue pressure on Hot Dogma for an extended period which in the Steward’s view was the main contributing factor to the gelding tiring and being uncompetitive in the race. Ben Woodsford pleaded guilty to the charge and his driver’s licence was suspended for a period of 4 weeks. The stewards directed that this term of suspension commence Saturday, midnight, 9th of February 2019.

Trainer Ross Fletcher(Hot Dogma) was charged pursuant to rule 231(2) for misconduct by using foul language towards officials in the birdcage area. Mr Fletcher pleaded guilty to the charge. A $500 fine was imposed and stewards directed a $300 portion of this fine be suspended for a period of twelve months pending no further breaches under this rule."

Here's an interesting IR outcome a greyhound trainer's license refused but decision set aside by Mr Ashby ......a very well presented submission by the applicant resulted in the licensing committee's decision being set aside and the matter referred back to them to deal with..referring the matter back puts the onus on the committee as I assume the internal reviewer doesn't have the authority to grant the application hisself.

Arsenal,

Given that legal types are supposed to be erudite high IQ types I question the use of the word 'review'.

They really mean 'change', or change required  as directed

 whereas the word review means have a look with no direction in actuality.

I'll bet this bloke has far more experience in handling animals than these clowns who have blocked his path. Isn't the "Reviewer " just a failed jockey. Fair dinkum you wouldn't feed these dopes at QRIC. Let them concentrate on getting the finishing order right in races before taking bigger steps.

QRIC BOSS ROSS BARNETT BACKS ORGANISATION
Sunday 21 April, 2019
 
Mark Oberhardt
 
QRIC commissioner Ross Barnett has defended the process in the long running Ben Currie inquiry.
Queensland's chief integrity officer Ross Barnett has moved to counter growing discontent within the industry at delays in dealing with the charges against Toowoomba trainer Ben Currie.
Barnett, who is commissioner of the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission, said he was aware of the impact of the investigation on Queensland's racing community.
He issued a statement after the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal on Thursday agreed to extend a stay order which allows Currie to keep training for the time being.
Barnett explained that QRIC was bound to follow the legal process in prosecuting its cases against Currie.
"The commission operates within the appeals system of internal review and QCAT as set out in the Racing Integrity Act," Barnett said.
"While multiple charges have been laid against Currie and have been vigorously pursued by the commission, Currie has exercised a range of legal rights that have delayed the finalisation of those matters."
Barnett said investigations involving Currie had been ongoing since April 7 last year and had already resulted in disciplinary action, including heavy suspensions and disqualifications of up to 18 months handed out to employees of Currie Racing for race day treatment offences.
He said the investigation had involved the seizure and analysis of CCTV footage, computer and telephone records, and had led to multiple charges against Currie.
Barnett said the charges related to race day treatment, providing false evidence, obstructing stewards investigations and animal cruelty offences.
Currie is also facing five charges relating to the presentation of horses that have returned positive swabs for a range of banned substances.
"A stewards inquiry into two new charges commenced last week, will resume on Wednesday," Barnett said.
"The hearing of other charges pending will continue throughout the coming weeks and we will continue to pursue and resolve these as soon as possible.
"We remind the racing community that QRIC and racing in Queensland must operate within the disciplinary frameworks set out by the Rules of Racing and the Racing Integrity Act."
Currie is this week expected to return from Bali where he has been at a wedding.
He has also been asked by Racing Queensland to explain why his nominations should not be refused and has until Friday to reply.

ENDS
