On 6 May 2015, the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) heard the application for review of Mr Craig Demmler regarding the decision made by the HRV Racing Appeals and Disciplinary (RAD) Board on 18 March 2015 to affirm the decision of the HRV Stewards made on 13 March 2015 to suspend the training and driving licences of Mr Demmler.

The original decision being made pending the outcome of an investigation into an analytical report that one of Mr Demmler’s horses returned an elevated raceday cobalt level that was in excess of the relevant threshold permitted by the rules. 

VCAT heard evidence from Dr Richard Cust and also heard submissions from the legal representative of Mr Demmler and the legal representative of the HRV Stewards.

VCAT has now released its decision and ordered that the decision of the HRV RAD Board regarding the suspension of Mr Demmler’s licences be set aside, meaning that Mr Demmler’s licences are reinstated and that he is therefore able to undertake activities in accordance with his licences.
