Jason Magri Fined $1000 After “Misbehaving”

Report

Greyhound Racing NSW stewards have heard submissions from trainer Jason Magri on a charge of him having misbehaved before stewards during an inquiry following the final race at Richmond on 18 October 2014.

Mr Magri pleaded guilty to the charge under GAR 91 (c) and was subsequently fined $1,000, with $500 of that penalty suspended conditional on no repeat offence under the conduct rules for a period of 12 months.

Mr Magri was advised of his right of appeal.

ARG Opinion

It’s extremely hard to have an opinion when given no option to do so. What did Magri actually do? Who would know from this report? The fact the he pleaded guilty means that he did something wrong, but there needs to be far more transparency in the stewards reports.

Past Discussion

  1. still waiting for my enquiry over 2 years later. (wonder why it has not been conducted?)
    stewards and officials of GRNSW are allowed to misbahave and disrespect the participants keeping them employed but yet no consequences?
    once again cracking jokes
    someone want to find out my story? or should we allow them to sweep me along with their wrongdoing and obvious breach of multiple of their own rules/regulations under the rug?
    i will pursue my concerns to the ends of the earth then some.
    anyone willing to assist contact me through facebook or Ph no# on request

  3. I’m not sure that I agree with needing to know – the reason I say that is for the purpose of maintaining confidentiality between Stewards and Participant. If the participant wants challenge the decision then it’s up to them to do that not the industry participants who lets face it only want to know out of curiosity. Stewards not only have a responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of each enquiry but also a duty of care toward the welfare of each participant under investigation or enquiry. Unnecessary release of information can cause Added public ridicule which potentially could lead to much worse consequences. There is a lot more at stake then the interest of nosey participants
