(Reuters) – Irish trainer Gordon Elliott has been banned for 12 months, six months of that suspended, Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board (IHRB) said on Friday, after a photo circulated of him sitting on a dead horse.
“The photograph shows the most appalling bad taste on the part of Mr Elliott,” the judgement from the IHRB read. “It demonstrates a complete absence of respect for the horse at a time when he still remains in his charge.”
