Apprentice Deanne Panya Suspended For One Month

Racing NSW Stewards today inquired into the analyst’s findings in respect to a urine sample provided by Apprentice Jockey Deanne Panya after riding at Royal Randwick on 2 January 2017.

Evidence today was taken from Ms Panya, who was assisted by Racing NSW Industry Mentor, Mr M Logue, trainer Mr S Englebrecht and ARFL General Manager Mr J Keledjian.

Ms Panya pleaded guilty to a charge under AR81A(1)(a) in that a sample taken from her was found to contain the diuretic hydrochlorothiazide, a substance banned under AR81B. Stewards were not able to determine the cause of the findings.

Ms Panya’s permit to ride in races was suspended for a period of 1 month, to commence, in accordance with LR109(a), at the conclusion of receiving workers compensation benefits, following an injury sustained at Rosehill Gardens on 28 January 2017.   

In accordance with AR81AA(1)(4) Ms Panya provided a sample of her urine at Randwick on 21 January 2017, that has been analysed to be free from any substance banned by AR81B.

Ms Panya was advised of her rights of appeal.

Relevant Rules AR 81A.  (1)  Any rider commits an offence and may be penalised if -

(a) a sample taken from him is found upon analysis to contain a substance banned by AR 81B

(4)  In the event of a rider incurring a penalty or being prevented from riding under this rule he shall not resume riding until he delivers a sample, as directed by the Stewards, that is free of any substance banned by AR 81B.

LR 109.  Unless otherwise determined by Racing NSW:

(a) any period of suspension, disqualification, revocation or cancellation of licence imposed upon a person is deferred for any such period that the person is in receipt of racing related workers compensation benefits.
