The BHA did not disclose exact details of the case but said https://www.britishhorseracing.com/press_releases/trainer-johnny-farrelly-excluded-from-british-racing the former jockey was found in breach following a five-day hearing by racing’s independent National Safeguarding Panel.

In a statement released through the National Trainers Federation, Farrelly said he would appeal against the decision.

“I intend to appeal against today’s findings and will therefore make no further comment about the hearing,” he said.

“I would also like it to be known that a police investigation concluded with no charges in relation to my conduct.”
