The Stewards received a report from Ms. N. O'Connor, Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer, that she was unable to positively identify Miss Anfield, trained by P.J. Rothwell, from the markings contained in the passport presented for this horse. Evidence was heard from Ms. Rachael O'Neill and the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board Veterinary Officer. Ms. Rachael O'Neill stated that P. J. Rothwell had delivered Miss Anfield to the yard of John Hanlon, trainer, this morning at approximately 10:30am to then be transported to Ballinrobe this evening on John Hanlon's lorry. She added that when the horse arrived it was put on the walker and then an unnamed gelding that had been purchased recently was mistakingly taken off the walker and loaded onto the lorry
Ms. N. O'Connor stated that the animal presented as Miss Anfield was in fact an unnamed gelding. Having considered the evidence, the Stewards, pursuant to the provisions of Rule 90(iv), ordered the withdrawal of Miss Anfield and referred the matter to a senior racing official. Furthermore, the Stewards were satisfied that P. J
Rothwell was in breach of Rule 147(V), in that he had not appointed an Authorised Representative to represent him in relation to matters connected with his runners. Having considered P. J. Rothwell's record in this regard the Stewards fined him €130 on this occasion
The Stewards fined D.McNamara, trainer, €65 for failing to fit the declared headgear to Getaclan, prior to entering the parade ring
The Stewards interviewed M.M. McDonagh, rider of Get Phar, concerning his use of the whip in the latter stages of this race. Evidence was heard from the rider concerned. In his evidence M.M. McDonagh admitted that his arm was above shoulder height when using his whip in his left hand but was correctly used when switched to his right hand. Having viewed a recording of the race and considered the evidence the Stewards were of the opinion that M.M. McDonagh was in breach of R10(3)(h) by using his whip with his arm above shoulder height. Having taken his previous record into consideration, the Stewards suspended M.M. McDonagh for one raceday.
