Date set for Goodrich RAD Board hearing

Victorian trainer Kate Goodrich will appear before The Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board over her refusal to let stewards conduct a race day stable inspection.

A directions hearing has been scheduled for Tuesday morning, while the charge against Goodrich is set to be heard next Monday.

Goodrich has been charged with not allowing stewards from Racing Victoria’s compliance assurance team to conduct the inspection on December 12 and examine Street Stalker who was entered to race at Kilmore that day.

Stewards say Goodrich refused to obey a reasonable direction to allow an inspection of the horse, which they say obstructed or hindered them from carrying out their duties.

Street Stalker was subsequently scratched by stewards.

Goodrich has had a long-standing grievance with the Kilmore Racing Club and RV.

She posted on social media at the time of the Street Stalker incident she had offered to let the CAT inspect her stable in the presence of police.

Goodrich also said she then offered to take Street Stalker to the track for inspection by race day staff but that was rejected.

RV has refused all nominations from Goodrich and Racing NSW has followed suit pending the result of the inquiry.
