Robinson Allowed to Train Again




The National Horseracing Authority confirms that at an Inquiry held in Durban on 26 November 2020, Trainer L F Robinson was charged with a contravention of Rule 72.1.43.


The specifics of the charge being that on or about 14 November 2020, he posted a comment on a social media platform which could reasonably be construed to be racist to other persons in the racing industry.


Trainer Mr L F Robinson pleaded not guilty to the charge. However, after considering the evidence, the Inquiry Board found Trainer Robinson guilty as charged.


The Inquiry Board imposed a penalty of a cancellation of his Trainer’s Licence, which is wholly suspended for a period of 2 years, on condition that he is not found guilty of a similar offence during this period. In addition to this penalty, the Inquiry Board imposed a fine of R25 000.


Furthermore, Trainer L F Robinson’s interim suspension, that was imposed on him in terms of Rule 91.2, pending the finalisation of the Inquiry, is lifted with immediate effect. As such, Mr Robinson may enter and declare horses to race in terms of his Licence as a Trainer.


Mr Robinson has the right of appeal against the finding and the penalty imposed.
