RAD board decision on charges against Richard Laming ...race day treatment ...two months on the outer ..very interesting case  it appears that his staff all with foreign sounding names would be on 457 visas...and communication from one to another isn't one of  their strong points.

More charges for Laming
 
Andrew Eddy@fastisheddy
3:45pm

Suspended trainer Richard Laming has been hit with two more charges by Racing Victoria stewards following an investigation into a pre-race blood sample taken from Sly Romance in May.

Stewards on Monday issued two charges against Laming after one of his horses Sly Romance returning a pre-race blood sample containing a corticosteroid Triamcinolone Acetonide.

The presence of Triamcinolone Acetonide was detected in the blood sample by Racing Analytical Services Limited and by the Australian Racing Forensic Laboratory.

Laming, who is currently serving a two-month suspension for raceday treatment, has been issued with the following charges under Australian Rules of Racing:
Charge One: AR178 – Presentation of a horse with a prohibited substance

"When any horse that has been brought to a racecourse for the purpose of engaging in a race and a prohibited substance is detected in any sample taken from it prior to or following its running in any race, the trainer and any other person who was in charge of such horse at any relevant time may be penalised."

The particulars of the charge are summarised as follows:
On 19 May 2018, Sly Romance was brought to Flemington Racecourse and ran in the Andrew Ramsden Stakes over 3200 metres.

A prohibited substance, being Triamcinolone Acetonide, (a corticosteroid), was detected in a pre-race blood sample taken from Sly Romance on 19 May 2018.

Charge Two: AR178F(1) – Failure to record treatment and medication administered
1. "A trainer must record treatment and medication administered to each horse in his or her care by midnight on the day on which the administration was given, and each record must include the following information:"

The particulars of the charge are summarised as follows:
In accordance with AR 178F(1), Mr Laming failed to record in his treatment diary the following treatment and medication administered to Sly Romance on 13 April 2018: the intra-articular injection of Kenacort (Triamcinolone Acetonide) and Hyaluronic Acid to the knees and fore fetlocks.

The charges issued against Laming will be heard before the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board on a date to be fixed.

Laming is already awaiting a RAD Board date for an inquiry into one of his horses Its Ekstraordinary returning a positive to cobalt at Ballarat in May.ENDS

Stewards charge Laming over cobalt positive
 
Racing.com Staff@Racing
5:15pm

Racing Victoria stewards have issued charges against licensed trainer Richard Laming following an investigation into the circumstances that led to his galloper Iam Ekstraordinary returning a urine sample containing cobalt in excess of the permitted threshold of 100 micrograms per litre in urine in May 2018.
The pre-race urine sample was taken from Iam Ekstraordinary after finishing fifth in the City of Ballarat Maiden Plate over 1200 metres at Ballarat Racecourse on May 23 last year.
In accordance with Schedule 1, Part 2, Division 3 of the Australian Rule of Racing, cobalt is a prohibited substance on race day at a mass concentration in excess of 100 micrograms per litre in urine.
The concentration of cobalt detected in the urine sample was determined by Racing Analytical Services Limited to be greater than 200 micrograms per litre (with a measurement uncertainty of 10 micrograms per litre at 100 micrograms per litre) and by Racing Science Centre to be also greater than 200 micrograms per litre (with a measurement uncertainty of 6 micrograms per litre).
The following three charges (of which two are in the alternative) have been laid against Laming under the Australian Rules of Racing:
Charge One: AR 245 Administration of prohibited substance in sample taken from horse before/after running in race
In breach of AR 245(1) stewards allege that, prior to the race on 23 May 2018, Laming administered, or caused to be administered, to Iam Ekstraordinary a prohibited substance, being cobalt at a concentration in excess of 100 micrograms per litre in urine, which was detected in a sample taken from Iam Ekstraordinary prior to the running of the race.
Charge Two: AR 240 Prohibited substance in sample taken from horse at race meeting [Alternative to Charge One]
In breach of AR 240(2) stewards allege that on 23 May 2018, Laming brought Iam Ekstraordinary to the Ballarat Racecourse for the purpose of engaging in the City of Ballarat Maiden Plate 1200 metres when a prohibited substance, being cobalt at a mass concentration in excess of 100 micrograms per litre in urine, was detected in a urine sample taken from Iam Ekstraordinary prior to the running of the race.
Charge Three: AR 104 Trainers must keep treatment records
In breach of AR 104 stewards allege that during a stable inspection on 20 June 2018, a treatment diary was provided which was later proven not to be up to date.
The charges issued against Laming will be heard before the Victorian Racing Tribunal on a date to be confirmed.

Laming faces new charges
 
Racing.com Staff@Racing
6 February, 2020
, (
Racing Victoria stewards have laid two charges against trainer Richard Laming for the alleged race-day treatment of Jamaican Rain during the Spring Carnival.
The charges follow a race-day stable inspection conducted by the RV Compliance Assurance Team at Laming's stable on November 5, 2019.
Jamaican Rain was engaged to run in the Group 3 Jim Beam Stakes over 1400 metres at Flemington on that day.
Stewards ordered the withdrawal of Jamaican Rain from the race following a report from the Compliance Assurance which revealed that Jamaican Rain was lame in the off-fore and not suitable to race.
Laming has been charged under AR 255 (stomach-tubing prohibited at certain times).
Stewards allege that Laming, on the morning of the race and prior to the stewards' arrival at the stable at approximately 8:44am, stomach-tubed, caused the stomach-tubing of, attempted to stomach-tube and/or was a party to the stomach-tubing or attempted stomach-tubing of Jamaican Rain on the premises.
He was also charged under AR 232(C) for failure to observe processes and directions of PRAs or stewards.
Stewards allege that, while they were exercising their powers, performing their functions and/or carrying out their duties on November 5, 2019,  Laming obstructed, hindered and/or delayed the stewards in exercising their powers, performing their functions and/or carrying out their duties, in that he deleted, or incited another person to delete, files from a Network Video Recorder on the premises.
Laming will face the Victorian Racing Tribunal on a date to be fixed.

Cranbourne trainer fined $5000
Racing Article

Racing.com Staff@Racing

3 January, 2021


Richard Laming has been fined $5000 after pleading guilty to a charge of engaging in conduct detrimental to the interests of racing.

On Friday, stewards concluded an inquiry into an incident that took place at the Cranbourne Training Centre on 13 August in which Laming is alleged to have directed threatening, racially vilifying and insulting comments towards track rider Darshan Prakish.

The inquiry was initially adjourned before Laming was charged under AR228(e).

In assessing the penalty, stewards took into account Laming’s guilty plea, his record and noted the serious nature of the offence.

Laming is also awaiting a sanction after pleading guilty to a charge of presenting Iam Ekstraordinary to race with an elevated cobalt level in his system at Ballarat in May 2018.

In a landmark decision in October, Laming had a more serious charge of administering cobalt dismissed by the Victorian Racing Tribunal.

The trainer is set to defend two separate charges laid by stewards in February relating to the alleged raceday stomach tubing of Jamaican Rain on Melbourne Cup Day in 2019.

In an email to owners last year, Laming denied the allegations and indicated that he will be “vigorously contesting” the charges.

Interesting to see Marnu Potgieter make the 1700km trip from Rockhampton to Moruya to ride a few over their Cup weekend. I wonder if he’ll catch up for a chat with his old partner in crime, Ritchie Laming?. I see he has decided to travel the 700km from his Cranbourne base to race a couple. 🤔

Laming fights stomach-tubing charges

Andrew Eddy@fastisheddy Racing.com

1:47pm
, (

A parkland surveillance of Richard Laming’s Cranbourne stables indicated ‘’activity consistent with drenching of a horse’’ the inquiry into an alleged race day stomach-tubing of Jamaican Rain heard on Tuesday.

The hearing before the Victorian Racing Tribunal had its first sitting in the County Court on Tuesday after a ‘’view day’’ on Monday at Laming’s stables, where it is alleged that in November, 2019 the trainer illegally stomach-tubed or attempted to stomach-tube mare Jamaican Rain, who was listed to race that day in a group 3 race at Flemington.

Laming faces two charges out of the raid while stable hands Marnu Potgieter and Zeyaur Rahman each face one charge of being a party to the alleged stomach-tubing or attempt to do so.

The inquiry before a three-person panel chaired by Judge John Bowman, heard that Dion Villella, the manager of the Compliance Assurance Team, set himself up in a surveillance position in parkland behind Laming’s Cranbourne stables where he said he observed  stomach-tubing equipment – a bucket, a funnel a twitch and a tube – taken to a location near Jamaican Rain’s box.

Brendan Murphy, QC, for RV stewards, told the tribunal that Villella then called fellow steward Mark Stevens to re-enter Laming’s property after an earlier stable visit that morning, where he is alleged to have later seen ‘’a large amount of discharge liquid dripping from the horse’s right nostril’’.

The tribunal heard the equipment could not subsequently be found, aside from a bucket, which lay outside a window and contained a ‘’yellow, cream-coloured liquid’’.

Murphy said horse-bed shavings were found on the window-sill.

Damian Sheales, who is representing all three defendants, told the tribunal that all three deny the charges that Jamaicain Rain was illegal stomach-tubed or that there was an attempt to do so.

The hearing continues this afternoon and is due to run until Friday.

Trainer Richard Laming says Racing Victoria made the “right decision” dropping all charges against him for the alleged race-day stomach tubing Jamaican Rain in November 2019.

In a brief sitting on Thursday, Brendan Murphy, QC, acting on behalf of RV, told the Victorian Racing Tribunal his “instructions are to withdraw all charges”.

No reason was given for the decision.

Laming faced two charges in relation to a stable inspection in November 2019, while stable hands Marnu Potgieter and Zeyaur Rahman faced one charge each for the alleged breach.

Following RV’s sensational about-face, Laming’s barrister Damian Sheales, who also represented Potgieter and Rhaman, requested all charges be dismissed rather than withdrawn.

VRT chairman Judge John Bowman granted the unopposed application.

“We were very confident, even before the case started, we done nothing wrong,” Laming told News Australia and Racenet on Thursday.

“I don’t want to talk out of school and mention anything but there was something there that wasn’t right and their barristers picked up on it and made the right decision.”

The relieved 38-year-old continued.

“It dragged out for a long time and it’s very good for my family and friends and loyal clients, it’s good to have it behind us now,” Laming said.

“It affects your business, it affects everything, it‘s great to have it behind us to be honest.

“We can get on and train horses.

“My team has gone down in size, obviously, while the case was running, a lot of owners don’t want to support you while you’ve got that hanging over your head, now it’s behind us it’s great.”

The snap withdrawal followed an RV-led decision on Wednesday to halt proceedings midway through the five-day hearing, with Murphy citing information that could put the tribunal in “a difficult position”.

“I am making application that the matter be adjourned until tomorrow, but I will not indicate the basis of that application,” Murphy told the VRT on Wednesday.

“In our professional view it would be very dangerous to ignore the circumstances and it would put the tribunal ultimately, I would have thought, in a difficult position.”

Laming, allowed to train on a stay of proceedings, plans to appeal the three-month ban he received last week from the VRT for a cobalt presentation charge.

“Once again, we’re very confident of the right outcome there,” Laming said.

“It should’ve been a harsh fine in our opinion, and that’s probably what it should be and it wasn’t, we’ll definitely be appealing and we’re definitely confident there.”

Racing Victoria declined to comment on Thursday.


GELAGOTIS CLEARED ON DRENCHING COUNT

The Victorian Racing Tribunal has dismissed charges against trainer Peter Gelagotis, unable to be “comfortably satisfied” he illegally administered an alkalising agent on the horse Strong Influence.

Citing interviews stewards conducted from June 2019 and evidence heard by the tribunal last year, Judge John Bowman deemed Gelagotis, stable staff and the horse’s owner as “witnesses of truth”.

In a pre-race blood test taken at Sandown in June 26 2019, Strong Influence, who ran third on the day, returned a reading of 37.8 millimoles per litre in plasma on a threshold of 36 millimoles.

In its decision, which included a lengthy summary of evidence heard, the VRT said “the cause of the high reading remains a mystery”.

It also discounted “undocumented administration” within one clear day of the positive swab.

“Even if that is so, the question remains, by whom?” the decision reads.

“Further, can we be comfortably satisfied that the administration was by Mr Gelagotis or on his orders? Was it done with his knowledge?

“In our opinion, we cannot be comfortably satisfied that the evidence supports a conclusion that any administration was done by Mr Gelagotis, on his orders or with his knowledge.”

The tribunal said speculation the illegal stomach drenching was done by someone with a grudge or vendetta against Gelagotis “has led nowhere”.

A penalty in relation to the lesser charge – detection of a prohibited substance – Gelagotis pleaded guilty to will be handed down at a later date.

  :lol:   :lol:   :lol:  My same thoughts exactly. Why promote an industry full of honest trainers like Payne, Moroney, Eurell, Carey, Blackiston, Feek, Bowman, etc etc etc,etc,etc,etc,etc,etc,etc when you can easily accommodate the likes of Gelagotis, McCarthy, Dwyer, Laming, Morrish, Preuskar, Moody, O’Brien, Kavanagh, Brideoake, Eden, McDonald, McCarthy etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc
