Susan juniored for Louis Weston at an inquiry brought by the British Horseracing Authority concerning Eddie Ahern and Neil Clement. The case involved allegations of conspiracy to pass and use inside information and riding a horse other than on its merits. On behalf of the British Horseracing Authority Susan conducted Eddie Ahern’s penalty hearing when he received a 10 year ban from racing.
Susan represented the British Horseracing Authority before a full disciplinary panel, presenting that a jockey had tampered with samples and brought the sport into disrepute. Arguments turned on whether a jockey providing a Sampling Steward with a urine sample provided by another bound by the Rules of Racing, was also prejudicial to the reputation of British Horseracing. Susan successfully argued before a British Horseracing Authority disciplinary panel that the charge of conduct prejudicial was not duplicitous when brought with other breaches of the Rules of Racing.
Susan has represented the British Horseracing Authority at an appeal hearing and drafted a written response to a costs application.
