RWWA Stewards have now completed their deliberations in relation to Mr Harvey’s plea of not guilty to a charge under AR175 (a) for an improper action in connection with racing, in that on 5 November 2012 at the Lark Hill training complex, after being requested by RWWA’s Principal Investigator, Mr P O’Reilly to provide a sample of his urine, he provided a sample which upon analysis was found to originate not from him but from a female donor.
Mr Harvey was subsequently found guilty of the charge and was advised of this decision by letter dated Thursday, 25 September 2014.
Due to two members of the Stewards’ Panel determining this matter being currently unavailable as a result of being on leave, the inquiry will resume on Thursday, 13 November 2014 at 9.30am where submissions on the matter of penalty from Mr Harvey and his legal representative will be considered.
