Foreman Ben Cleary Disqualified 6 Months
Registered NSW foreman Ben Cleary was found guilty of a breach of AR175(a) when, in September 2001, "he obtained a payment of $5,000 from a Mr Hargraves for a 20% share in a Haradasun yearling filly, in circumstances that have subsequently shown that Mr Cleary did not have the ability to transfer the ownership of that share to Mr Hargraves". Mr Cleary was disqualified for a period of 6 months, to end on 2 January, 2013. Mr Hargraves has subsequently withdrawn his complaint to Racing NSW stewards, but their inquiry is ongoing.
