13 May 2019

Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) Stewards have lodged an application to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) for a review of the penalty decision of the HRV Racing Appeals & Disciplinary (RAD) Board on 17 April 2019 in relation to a charge issued against licensed trainer Jennifer Douglas.

Ms Douglas pleaded guilty to a charge issued under Australian Harness Racing Rule 193(1) for attempting to stomach tube ‘Hanging On A Dream’ on 27 March 2019 prior to its engagement at Bendigo on that date. Ms Douglas was issued with a 9-month disqualification in relation to that charge. The details of the HRV RAD Board hearing can be viewed here.

The matter is listed for a VCAT Directions Hearing on 27 May 2019.

Ms Douglas remains disqualified until such time as the matter is heard and determined by the Tribunal.
