You would think if they had sufficient evidence then charges would be laid.

That’s just my two cents.

I’d say it is a little delicate and more complicated than just laying charges when it comes to the golden goose.

I can’t believe that it did not get suppressed by the big boys. Must be why the cops were involved instead

I can't begin to imagine the agony he was in for over 36 hours, not to mention the mental trauma suffered by all horses in the barn; they all know when one of their own is struggling for life Angry

Horse death results in suspension

Racing New South Wales has suspended three members of a training partnership for failing to provide adequate veterinary treatment to one of their horses.

Canberra trainers Barbara Joseph, Paul Jones and Matt Jones fronted Racing NSW stewards on Wednesday at the continuation of an inquiry that was opened on May 19 this year.

It was in relation to the circumstances surrounding the death of I Am Rocky in February this year and the care the four-year-old entire was afforded in the lead-up to its death.

In addition to one charge under AR103(4), for failing to lodge a stable return for I Am Rocky despite the horse having been in work for approximately nine weeks, the training partners were also issued one charge under AR231(1)(b)(iii).

Among the particulars of that charge were:

* At approximately 4am on Saturday, 23 February 2019, co-trainer Mr M. Jones became aware that I Am Rocky was displaying symptoms of colic.

* At approximately 8:09am on Saturday, 23 February 2019, Mr P. Jones became aware that I Am Rocky was again displaying symptoms of colic.

* That during Saturday, 23 February 2019, stable foreperson Mr S. Jamieson had observed that I Am Rocky had “been lethargic all day”.

* That during Saturday, 23 February 2019, they did fail to provide for veterinary treatment of I Am Rocky when the horse was displaying symptoms of colic and such treatment was necessary for the horse.

* That after observing that I Am Rocky was dull and lethargic in its stable at approximately 7am on Sunday, 24 February 2019, licensed stablehand Ms L. Fehre contacted Mr S. Jamieson soon after and reported to him words to the effect “He looks unwell and he probably needs a vet”.

* That at no time did they, subsequent to Saturday, 23 February 2019 and whilst I Am Rocky remained in their care, control and supervision at their registered racing stables provide for veterinary treatment of the horse, when such treatment was necessary for the horse.

* I Am Rocky was found deceased in its stable at approximately 7:30pm on Sunday, 24 February 2019 by stable foreperson Mr S. Jamieson.

* A post-mortem examination report completed by Dr S. Raidal, Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (Charles Sturt University), on 26 February 2019, provided a gross diagnosis of right dorsal displacement of the large colon, likely secondary to diffuse typhlocolitis ultimately was the cause of the death of I Am Rocky. The Report also identified and described numerous superficial wounds and subcutaneous haemorrhages, consistent with trauma following an episode of uncontrolled colic pain.

AR231(1) states that it is an offence for any person in charge of a horse to fail to provide veterinary treatment to a horse when necessary.

The four-month suspension under the second charge was reduced from six months owing to a guilty plea from the three training partners, while they were also fined $200 under charge one.

Any ideas who? I'm sure our Q/land members are all over it.

Racehorse dead and another euthanised after property investigation

Posted by: AAP+ at 3:17pm on 17/1/2020

The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission has confirmed a registered racehorse has died and another has been euthanised after investigations at a property near Brisbane.

QRIC boss Ross Barnett said another two horses were found to be in a serious condition after a visit by Integrity officers to the property at Pimpana between Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Barnett said QRIC had also issued an animal welfare direction to the owners of two currently registered thoroughbred racehorses found in various stages of neglect at the property.

He said officers attended the property earlier this week after the case was referred from the RSPCA.

Barnett said one registered racehorse had died on the property before staff attended and the second horse was in such poor condition, it was humanely euthanised.

“Two horses remain in a serious condition and arrangements are in place for their care,” Barnett said.

“Whenever the commission receives an animal welfare report, the response is swift and in this case it was immediate.”

Barnett said officers had issued an animal welfare direction to ensure the owners immediately increased nutritional and feed intake for the remaining horses.

Who is Pimpana ?  Name them please ??? 
And never rely on the RSPCA.  They are useless . 
Go further.  To racing authorities,  or the press, or just facebook, if you find an animal in need.

Pimpama is about 20min north of the Goldie, it's a newish area with massive housing estates, a brand new mall, and a few farms that haven't sold to the developers, so where the horses are?

Very disturbing to read on RNSW this morning re the charges stewards issued and subsequent penalties to those guilty of shocking, cruel and malicious acts on those poor defenceless darlings......I can't describe how I feel, suffice to say the track rider involved in that despicable act at Warwick Farm was riding for Rick Worthington. The horse was by Redoubts so wouldn't have been a cheap purchase....I wonder what action the RSPCA might take. or the owners even....if that was one of mine, or the other poor souls I'd be at the stable door, with lawyers and a baseball bat.

Absolutely shocking!. Surely it must have been an insurance job for something like this to have happened? Seriously, how piss poor is what the Stewards handed down as punishment? 13months and a $500 fine. Would love to know what the insurance payout was as I’m sure his sling would more than cover it.

Might be in the horses best interest if they stopped insuring them. Lot of suspect activity out there 😡

RIP 💔

Investigators have today confirmed who 5 of the many horses found starved to death at the Toowoomba property are.

All mares. All with $0 in prize money. All suffered unimaginable pain.

Oorawan - DECEASED. 7 year old mare - last raced 13/7/16 - 5 races $0 prize money - listed as deceased 20/1/20 bred by Mr G Dawson.

Aah - DECEASED. 11 year old mare - no records of being raced - listed as deceased 20/1/20 - bred by Gainsborough Lodge QLD.

Sarah’s Joy - DECEASED. 13 year old mare - 6 races last raced 13/3/10 - listed as retired - $0 prize money - bred by GG Taylor NSW.

Onya Sonya - DECEASED. 12 year old mare - no racing records - listed as active - bred by Palmaday Stud QLD

Miss Voli - DECEASED. 13 year old mare - last raced 24/12/11 5 races - $0 prize money - bred by Mr R Lynch QLD. breeding record - giving birth to Golden Mistress in 2016, after 2 'missed' and a 'foal died at birth'.

as well as Flagflemenco - as previously reported. Still alive, at this stage. 11 year old mare bred by Lyndhurst Stud QLD. Raced 18 times from 2011 - 2013 resulting in $13,940 in prize money for her owners.

Despite public outrage and almost 2000 emails to the Minister of Agriculture, there still appears to be very little action from Biosecurity Queensland, who are claiming they are caring for the horses and making two visits per day. However, very distressed neighbours are watching closely and report they are not seeing them there at all. They also report they have been instructed to stop giving the high quality feed they have been kindly giving themselves so now the only feed will be that being given by the property owner which is one small feed per day of wet straw.

Demand that Biosecurity Queensland take action TODAY - https://alq.org.au/horse-cruelty-toowoomba and take our pledge to never bet on or attend a horse race again here https://horseracingkills.com/…/the-racing-industrys-darkes…/

Authorities Fail Starved Horses

16 January 2020

After dozens of horses on one property have been left to slowly starve to death, you would think that everything would be done to ensure that the same thing doesn't happen to the last remaining horses. But once again, Biosecurity Queensland (Department of Agriculture) have failed to act, failed to prosecute and failed to protect these animals.

Investigators from Animal Liberation Qld and Coalition for Protection of Racehorses attended the site in the Gowrie Mountain area just outside of Toowoomba yesterday to observe the horses from the fence line and find out more. 

We have grave concerns for these 8 horses who have witnessed their friends starve to death. The surviving horses are still not being adequately fed. Witnesses reported only a very small amount of feed is now being given once a day, and some days none at all. The bodies of their friends still remain on the property, slowly decomposing.

What does it take for the Department to prosecute for animal cruelty? How bad does it need to be? These horses need to be seized and given the opportunity of living a life free of neglect and starvation. 

Tell the Minister that this level of animal cruelty is unacceptable, and that you want action for starving animals. This level of cruelty requires animals to be seized and properly cared for and for prosecution for animal cruelty.

Take action below. You can also call the Minister's office on (07) 3719 7420.

A thread with almost 1000 shares since yesterday has given a Terry Oberle as the owner.
This poster is SO spot on imo.

Sarah Evans Ok, pretty sure he has owned racehorses in the past and Racing QLD will be taking an extremely hard line with this waste of breath.
He's not a trainer.
There were so many horses on this property of which a handful once raced and the current registere
d connections of said horses are now being investigated on charges relating to the malnutrition of their horses.
So most of these horses are not racehorses. None of them are within the current racing system (retired/spelling).

This is where the GOVERNMENT needs to bloody start pulling it's weight in animal welfare responsibility and the damn RSPCA needs a massive overhaul!!

This should NEVER be allowed to happen to ANY horse.

Cut the blame game! Racing is doing everything in its power while the government both state and federal drags it's bloody feet and racing STILL is copping the blame😡
