Delaware Park Stewards Ruling

(120-2019)

Owner/Trainer Heather Brown, RCI ID: 1973749, having been duly noticed, appeared in a Stewards hearing on October 30, 2019. The matter of alleged violation of DTRC rule 2.5 Grounds for Refusal, Suspension or Revocation of a Permit, etc. 2.5.1.17.1…financial irresponsibility or failure to pay debts when due, …would be inconsistent with the best interests of racing by reflection on the honesty and integrity of the sport of racing, or association with persons so characterized.

Groom, Garyn White, RCI ID: 2191788, worked for Ms. Brown free-lance during the 2019 meet. Ms. White alleges a debt owed in the amount of two hundred (200.00) dollars for four (4) days and a bunkhouse deposit of two hundred fifty (250.00) dollars for a total of four hundred and fifty (450.00) dollars in dispute.

After hearing all testimony and evidence presented, Delaware Park Stewards find that O/T Heather Brown has failed to fulfill her financial obligation to Groom, Garyn White in the amount of four hundred and fifty (450.00) dollars. Consequently, O/T Heather Brown via this ruling is given seventy two (72) hours to pay this debt. Failure to do so will result in the suspension of Owner-Trainer Heather Brown’s DTRC license #28732 pending payment. (Monetary fines not paid within the parameters of the official ruling are subject to penalty and interest charges at the rate of 1.5% per month compounded monthly)
