Racing NSW Stewards today inquired into the Analyst's finding of a banned substance in the urine sample taken from licensed jockey Terry Green prior to him fulfilling his riding engagements at Scone Race Club’s race meeting on Saturday, 30th December 2017. Evidence was taken from Terry Green and written submissions were considered from Mrs J Green.
Mr Green subsequently pleaded guilty to a charge under AR81(A)(1)(a), in that he committed an offence of having provided a sample of his urine upon request, that was found upon analysis to contain a substance banned under AR81B.
Taking into account all the circumstances, including Mr Green’s record, which included five previous offences under AR81(A), a penalty of five years suspension of his jockey’s license in full was issued; backdated to 8th February when Mr Green was stood down, consequently Mr Green may apply to be relicensed as a jockey on 8th February 2023.
Further, Mr Green was advised that any such application would necessarily require him to attend a meeting of the respective Principal Racing Authority’s Licensing Board and providing a sample or samples as directed of his urine, free of any substances banned by AR81B.
Mr Green was advised of his appeal rights.
