Citation: 1 N.J.A.R. 78
Decision Date: 1980
Agency: RACING COMMISSION
Synopsis: Gillis appealed a determination of the Board of Judges at the Meadowlands Race Track that he had violated N.J.A.C. 13:71-20.6(a)8 by allowing his horse to impede the progress of another horse during the course of a race. Based on testimony and a review of videotapes of the race, the administrative law judge found that Gillis had twice allowed his horse to swerve towards another horse in the homestretch and that the second swerve was severe enough to impede the progress of the other horse causing him to break his stride. Accordingly, the judge ordered that Gillis's license as a driver and trainer be suspended for three days and that none of the money from the race's purse be paid to Gillis.
