Mr Burnett appealed against the stewards’ finding and the penalty imposed on him of a $200 fine and a three month suspension, which itself was suspended for 12 months. The appeal hearing was conducted on 11 June 2014.
The appeal against the breach of GAR 86 (o) was dismissed. The appeal against the penalty was upheld in part, with the penalty varied to a $200 fine and no suspension.
One-third of Mr Burnett’s appeal deposit was refunded.
