Stewards spoke to Trainer Mr. B. Pursell and catcher Mrs. C. Brinsley following the event as Call Me Snooze did not have a designated catcher. After considering the evidence provided Mrs. Brinsley was issued with a warning in that she was negligent in not fulfilling her catching obligation (GAR86(o)). In arriving at a penalty Stewards considered Mrs. Brinsley recent record for this offence and her frequency of organizing and catching greyhounds.
