Trainer Johnny Farrelly excluded from British racing

BHA Logo

Following a five-day hearing in front of the National Safeguarding Panel (NSP), trainer Johnny Farrelly has today been found in breach of six offences under Regulation 4 and one under Regulation 6 of the BHA Safeguarding Regulations following a referral by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) to the National Safeguarding Panel.

As a result of this finding, Mr Farrelly has been permanently excluded from British racing with the right to review not before a period of seven years has elapsed. The exclusion will commence from 5 October 2021.

The BHA and all parties are bound by the NSP’s rules around disclosure. As part of their ruling, the NSP have agreed that the finding of exclusion against the trainer may be publicised, but there can be no further disclosure of the details of the case. Mr Farrelly has the right to appeal the finding.
