Horse racing-Trainer Farrelly permanently excluded from British racing By Reuters


(Reuters) – The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) said trainer Johnny Farrelly has been permanently excluded from racing with no right to review for seven years after being found to have breached safeguarding rules.

Farrelly was found guilty under the regulations covering “the protection and welfare of children and adults at high risk” for having trained horses from Somerset’s stable since 2013. He had five wins this season.

The BHA did not disclose exact details of the case but said the former jockey was found in breach following a five-day hearing by racing’s independent National Safeguarding Panel.

Farrelly, in a statement made through the National Trainers Federation stated that he will appeal against this decision.

He stated, “I will appeal today’s findings” and would not make any further comments about the hearing.
