Talking after the listening to, O’Brien Sr stated that the breach took place as a result of a false impression in terms of the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board procedures.
He informed the Racing Publish: “Donnacha and I travelled to the races in combination and we had the entire paper paintings for the well being screening finished and that used to be all superb, but it surely used to be my first day’s racing since racing resumed and we went to head within the aspect gate we at all times use by means of the auto park.
“We had been allowed in and there have been no questions requested. I went out and in quite a few instances all the way through the day and no one stated the rest to me. There used to be not anything untoward about it, it used to be only a false impression, and we’re totally supportive of the entire measures in position to stay racing going.”
