Dylan Marshall - Fined for improper whip

The Harness Racing Victoria Racing & Appeals Disciplinary Board (HRV RAD 
Board) today considered a charge issued by HRV Stewards against registered 
trainer-driver Dylan Marshall.

The charge related to a report from HRV Stewards where, during a routine 
inspection of the stables of Mr Marshall on 14 May 2014, he had in his possession a 
whip that had been modified by way of the addition of two lengths of plastic coated 
wire attached to the tip.

Mr Marshall pleaded guilty to a charge under Australian Rules of Harness 
Racing 213(b), which states that: "a person shall not have in his possession any 
harness, gear, equipment, device, substance or any other thing capable of inflicting 
suffering on a horse."

The HRV RAD Board imposed a fine of $1000 with $500 suspended for a period of 
12 months.
