Inquiry - Race 10 at Ballarat, Thursday 31 May 2018:
GRV Stewards today inquired into an incident that occurred during a Stewards inquiry into the performance of Riverdale Danger from Race 10 at the Ballarat Greyhound Racing Club meeting held on Thursday, 31 May 2018. Stewards took evidence from Mr Matthew Blood, GRV Steward, and Mr Ian Green, trainer of Riverdale Danger. Acting under GAR 86(q) Stewards charged Mr Ian Green with conduct that was detrimental or prejudicial to the interests and control of greyhound racing by making inappropriate comments during the inquiry, before leaving the in-progress inquiry without permission. Mr Green pleaded guilty to the charge. Mr Green was found guilty.
In determining penalty, Stewards took into consideration Mr Green’s good and long record with GRV, his guilty plea, his personnel antecedence and the forthright way he conducted himself before the Stewards today. Against these factors, Stewards considered the nature and gravity of the incident, the precedents and penalties of several other similar cases, the very real need to deter participants to act in this manner or similar, the poor nature of the incident and that behaviour such as this is not acceptable from licensed persons (General Deterrence). However, in view of Mr Green's significant mitigation factors, including an apology to the Stewards involved, Stewards suspended half of the $500 fine for 24 months, pending no further conduct related offences in this time. Stewards reminded Mr Green that a trainer’s license is a privilege to hold and not a right. Further still, save for Mr Green leaving the owner of Riverdale Danger in the Stewards room at Ballarat to complete the inquiry, the penalty would have been significantly higher.
