Belinda Dunn guilty of administration
Racing Article Racing.com Staff@Racing   4:33pm
, (
Tatura trainer Belinda Dunn will reappear before the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board after being found guilty of administering, or causing to administer, excessive levels of cobalt to a horse on Thursday.

A post-race urine sample of the Dunn-trained Margot's Boy revealed the horse to have the prohibited substance at a concentration in excess of 200 micrograms per litre, after winning a Benchmark 58 race over 1980 metres at Tatura on September 23, 2017.

The current cobalt threshold limit stands at 100 micrograms.

The RAD Board, led by Judge John Bowman, lamented Dunn's stable practices, drawing comparisons with the cobalt case involving champion trainer Peter Moody in 2016.

"Your record-keeping as to administration of substances is not particularly good and somewhat confusing," the RAD Board's said in a statement outlining the decision and reasons behind their verdict.

"Of course, we take into account that unfortunately you suffer from dyslexia. However, the fact remains that there has been some confusion as to what medications were administered to Margot's Boy leading into the race on September 23, 2017 and as to stable practices.

"In some ways this is a case similar to that of Peter Moody. Your method of running your stables has been found wanting and there is no suggestion of outside interference. No plausible explanation as to how such a reading occurred has been advanced.

"We are satisfied that you administered or caused to be administered cobalt to Margot's Boy, even if this resulted from negligence and a lack of care, particularly in relation to medications and the like."

The RAD Board will hear penalty submissions from the parties on a date to be determined.

Caserta suspended for betting
Carl Di Iorio@CDi_Iorio   11:40am

Lapses in judgement which led to Chris Caserta placing six bets, totaling $49, resulted in the apprentice jockey receiving a four-week suspension on Wednesday.

Caserta pleaded guilty to placing the bets through his TAB account on four separate days between March 11 and December 9 last year.

The jockey did not participate in any of the races on which he placed wagers, with the races held in Australia (Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia) and Hong Kong.

Two of the six bets were $1 each while another was a $2 wager. The greatest amount outlaid on a single bet was $30.

Caserta told Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board Chairman Judge John Bowman that he was 'disappointed and embarrassed' by his actions.

Judge John Bowman determined that a four-week suspension, identical in length to the penalty imposed on apprentice Liam Riordan in 2016 for his first breach of betting rules, was a suitable penalty.

Caserta will start his four-week suspension immediately and will be free to ride on Thursday, April 11.

RAD Board lets jockey Stephanie Thornton off the hook on the charge of careless riding ...apparently the video wasn't quite up to scratch.

"The bottom line is that on the basis of the overall evidence, I cannot be satisfied that the charge of careless riding has been made out. That is no criticism of Mr Montgomery who presented the evidence very fairly and it is no criticism of the Stewards. Technical difficulties did make the situation unfair to both parties. The bottom line is that the appeal is upheld and the charge of careless riding is dismissed."

Cobalt positives separate cases but heard together  Trevor Andrews and Matthew Leek the former was marginally over the threshold 118mcg while the latter was well over 531 mcg both cases appear to have been due to feeding supplements both found guilty submissions on penalties to be heard.

Cobalt: Leek warned off, Andrews suspended
Racing Article Racing.com Staff@Racing   25 July, 2019
, (
Victorian trainers Matthew Leek and Trevor Andrews have been sanctioned by the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board on Thursday.

Leek will be warned off for nine months following the completion of his existing disqualification period while Trevor Andrews will serve a six-month suspension.

The Leek-trained Champagne Kisses returned an elevated cobalt reading of 531 micrograms per litre of urine at Pakenham on March 3, 2016 while the Andrews charge was from Coppola's reading of 118 micrograms per litre of urine at Geelong on December 4 later that year.

The allowable limit is 100 micrograms per litre of urine.

Both Leek and Andrews were represented by Damian Sheales and pleaded guilty to a charge under AR 178 but not guilty under AR 175(h)(ii), which was in relation to the administration of a prohibited substance.

The RAD Board found the charge against each under AR 175(h)(ii) proven last month.

Submissions were taken from both parties on Thursday in relation to penalty before the sentences were handed out.

Leek, who started a period of disqualification on May 17 this year, will commence his nine-month period of warning off from March 10, 2020.

Andrews has been suspended for six months, with the date of commencement yet to be determined.

Brandon Stockdale suspended until 2020
Andrew Eddy@fastisheddy   11:07am
, (
Brandon Stockdale is unable to ride again this year after the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board confirmed a six-month suspension on Wednesday on misconduct and false evidence charges.

The 20-year-old is not permitted to ride again until February 14 next year but, in an agreement with his legal representative and Racing Victoria stewards, he can return to riding trackwork again from January 14 to prepare for his return.

The agreement between the parties has also allowed Stockdale to continue working in a racing stable during his suspension.

The pertinent rule, under AR 266 (2), permits a suspended rider to work in a racing stable under the strict guidelines that disallows any participation in riding in races, trials, jumpouts or trackwork.

Stockdale, who has not ridden since March, pleaded guilty to one charge under AR 228 (b) for misconduct, in that he entered a Cranbourne property and stole goods before damaging a CCTV camera.

He also pleaded guilty under AR 232 (i) for later giving false evidence to stewards over the matter.

He was suspended for three months on each charge, with the terms to be served accumulatively.

RAD Board decision on Brandon Stockdale details the offence allegedly entered a property stole horse rugs and head collars damaged a camera but wasn't charged with those offences but with  breaching the rules ...possibly the alleged stealing offences might have been referred to the police.
