HRSA STEWARDS - Stewards Inquiry April 2023

Globe Derby Park – Thursday 20th April 2023.


Stewards; T.T. Styles, G Loch.
Called to inquiry: Licenced trainer Don Thomas.


Evidence was taken from Mr. Thomas in respect to the pacer “Sheseversoclever” as HRSA Stewards had interviewed Mr. Thomas on Thursday 13th April 2023 following a publication on social media highlighting the condition of the mare when it left the stables of Mr. Thomas on 6th April 2023.
The mare had been transferred to a rehoming centre where Stewards arranged a veterinary examination to be carried out and the results forwarded to them.
After taking evidence from Mr. Thomas Stewards were of the view that in their considered opinion the inquiry should be adjourned, with consultation to follow.
Pending the outcome of the consultation the trainers licence of Mr. Thomas is suspended in accordance with HR.R183 (d)
