Licensed Training Partnership Greg And Jim Lee Fined $2000

Racing NSW Stewards today conducted an inquiry relative to the veterinary treatment provided to the racehorse Kiseki Dane, which was trained by the licensed training partnership of Mr Greg and Mr Jim Lee [The Partnership], following an injury the gelding had sustained to its Right Foreleg at the Canterbury Park race meeting on 12 July 2017.

Evidence today was taken from Mr Greg and Mr Jim Lee and Racing NSW Senior Official Veterinarian, Dr Craig Suann. In addition, Stewards considered a report tendered by Dr Derek Wong.

The partnership pleaded guilty to a charge under AR175(o) (iii), which states;

AR175. The Principal Racing Authority (or the Stewards exercising powers delegated to them) may penalise: (o) Any person in charge of a horse who in their opinion fails at any time – (iii) to provide for veterinary treatment where such treatment is necessary for the horse.

The particulars of the charge being that between 13 July 2017 and 26 July 2017, The Partnership failed to provide the necessary veterinary treatment, which included pain management, to Kiseki Dane, as directed by Racing NSW Senior Official Veterinarian, Dr Craig Suann, after that gelding sustained an injury to its right foreleg at the Canterbury Park race meeting on 12 July 2017.

In assessing penalty, the Stewards took into account Mr Greg and Mr Jim Lee’s prior clean record over a considerable period in the racing industry and their co-operation during the inquiry.

Further, the partnership was providing care for the horse on advice they had received previously from a veterinarian. The partnership of Mr. Greg and Mr. Jim Lee was fined the sum of $2000 and were advised of their rights of appeal.
