ADDITIONAL REPORTS :

 

RE : COMPLAINT LODGED BY APP.M.AYYAR AGAINST HIS MASTER TRAINER M.NARREDU :

 

The Stewards of the Club at their meeting held on 4th January, 2018 interviewed Trainer M. Narredu and his Spokesman, Diwan Arun Nanda as also his two witnesses, Mr. Vinesh Naik and Mr. Ravi Mane. The Stewards also heard App. M. Ayyar and his Spokesman, Mr. P. Trevor, in the above connection and directed the Stipendiary Stewards to conduct further enquiries in the matter.

 

The Stewards of the Club at their meeting held on 31st January, 2018 considered the further evidence obtained by the Stipendiary Stewards in the above enquiry. They interviewed Trainer M. Narredu and his Spokesman, Mr. Suresh Advani. The Stewards also heard App. M. Ayyar, Mr. Vinesh Naik and Mr. Ravi Mane.

 

The Stewards of the Club considered the evidence on record before them including the Video Recording submitted by Trainer M. Narredu as evidence at the meeting of the Stewards of the Club on 4th January, 2018 and heard him/his Spokesmen, Diwan Arun Nanda and Mr. Suresh Advani as also his two Witnesses viz. Mr. Vinesh Naik and Mr. Ravi Mane. The Stewards also heard App. M. Ayyar/his Spokesman, Mr. P. Trevor as also the Stipendiary Stewards. The Stewards also considered the evidence submitted by App. M. Ayyar before the Stipendiary Stewards i.e the audio recording of a telephonic conversation between Trainer M. Narredu’s Witness, Mr. Vinesh Naik and App. M. Ayyar’s Brother wherein Mr. Vinesh Naik had narrated that Trainer M. Narredu had beaten up Apprentice M. Ayyar a lot. Mr. Vinesh Naik and App. M. Ayyar also stated during the enquiry that the Video Recording submitted by Trainer M. Narredu as evidence, was done after the incident and not of the incident as wrongly and misleadingly claimed by Trainer M. Narredu at the  earlier meeting before the Stewards on 4th January, 2018. The Stewards also noted that the Video Recording submitted by Trainer M. Narredu was not a single clip but broken up in four parts, giving the impression that the same had been edited.

 

The Stewards of the Club having considered the evidence on record and having heard all concerned, were not satisfied with the explanation tendered by Trainer M. Narredu and held him guilty of gross misconduct in terms of Rule 114 (b) of the Rules of Racing and tendering false and misleading evidence before the Stewards. Having deliberated the matter at length and taking an overall view, the Stewards of the Club decided :-

 

a)       To suspend Trainer M. Narredu’s license for a period of six Race Days i.e. w.e.f. 15th February, 2018 to 8th March, 2018 (both days inclusive);

b)       To fine him a sum of Rs.1,00,000/-

c)       Further, he was severely cautioned that on a repetition of a similar offence/misconduct in the future, the then body of the Stewards of the Club will be justified in not granting him a Trainer’s license.

The Stewards of the Club were also not satisfied with the explanation tendered by Mr. Vinesh Naik and held him guilty of tendering false and misleading evidence before the Stewards on 4th January, 2018. However, keeping in mind the circumstances and the fact that he had subsequently come out with the truth and was very apologetic, the Stewards took a lenient view and decided not to initiate any action against him in this case. However, he was severely cautioned to be more careful in the future and once again reminded of his responsibility towards the Club as he is a license holder.

******************************

RE : ENQUIRY INTO THE DRIFT OF ODDS ON AIRLIFT (C.S.JODHA) IN RACE NO.153 – THE CIRCLE OF BLISS PLATE (DIV.II) RUN ON SUNDAY, 8TH OCTOBER, 2017 :

 

The Stewards of the Club at their meeting held on 21st January, 2018 having deliberated the matter and in light of the unavailability of the relevant telephone records and other factors, decided to close this enquiry. However, the Stipendiary Stewards were directed to write to Jockey C. S. Jodha that the Stewards noted, with a sense of deep regret, that he was not co-operative and at times, obstructive in the enquiry.  While the Stewards would have been justified to draw adverse inference from his conduct and consistent change of statements, in the overall interest of the integrity of the enquiry process, they have refrained from doing so. However, his approach and conduct leaves much to be desired and will certainly be one of the factors to be considered by the Stewards while renewing his license in the future.
