Ex-horse owner receives two-year ban

Share This Story



A former racehorse owner has been disqualified for two years after pleading guilty to involvement in a corruption scandal in Britain.

Michael Turl was charged along with jockey Eddie Ahern and four other men with violating various horseracing rules. Those include stopping horses running on their merits and passing on inside information for races from September 2009 to February 2011.

The men were scheduled to appear at a five-day disciplinary hearing of the British Horseracing Authority. But the governing body says on Wednesday that Turl has already entered a guilty plea.

Turl, an unlicensed individual, was fined $15,000.
