Warning Off – Mr Neil Costello

Racing NSW has, on Friday, 21 September 2018, warned off Mr Neil Costello effective immediately and until such time as he attends Racing NSW to be interviewed and to provide information to the satisfaction of Racing NSW.

The consequences of being warned off include not being permitted to enter any racecourse or training facility, not be able to have an interest in any thoroughbred racehorse and not being able to place a bet on thoroughbred races with a wagering operator.

Mr Costello attended an interview before Racing NSW Stewards earlier today in respect to their investigation involving licensed trainer Mr Benjamin Smith. Mr Costello failed to provide all the information requested by Racing NSW Stewards and left before the interview was concluded and contrary to the direction of Racing NSW Stewards, in the knowledge that he would be subject to sanction.

Mr Costello’s refusal to cooperate with Racing NSW Stewards has obstructed and hindered them in investigating serious breaches of the Rules of Racing.

The decision to warn off Mr Costello was made by Racing NSW Chief Executive, Mr Peter V’landys AM, under his delegated authority.

Mr V’landys said: “Racing NSW is on record time and again as saying integrity in this industry is paramount. Accordingly, no individual’s interest should outweigh the confidence of the public, and particularly punters, in the integrity of the industry.

“Racing NSW has zero tolerance for those that obstruct and hinder the maintenance of the integrity of thoroughbred racing in New South Wales”, Mr V’landys added.
