Clear Message Sent by Racing on Racism

Interim Suspension – Trainer F Robinson


The National Horseracing Authority confirms that it has opened an Inquiry into alleged racist comments made on social media by Trainer Frank Robinson.


After careful consideration of the social media post and the prima facie evidence, the Chief Executive and Racing Control Executive have placed an interim suspension on Trainer Robinson in terms of the provisions of Rule 91.2.


This interim suspension prevents Trainer Robinson from entering or declaring horses under his licence until such time as the Inquiry is finalised.


In the interests of horse welfare, Mr Robinson will be permitted access to horses in his care during the period of interim suspension.
