September hearing for Chapple-Hyam
Last Updated: August 20, 2013 4:51pm
Derby-winning trainer Peter Chapple-Hyam will face a disciplinary panel hearing at the British Horseracing Authority on September 5.
The Newmarket handler has to answer charges of misleading an investigating officer and refusing to supply full and true telephone records.
Should he be found in breach of the rules, the multiple Classic-winning trainer could be handed a substantial fine or possible suspension - the maximum penalty being three years.
The panel will consider if Chapple-Hyam deliberately misled or tried to mislead by an overt act an investigating officer when falsifying his telephone records in response to a Telephone Production Order issued to him last September, and stating in a subsequent letter that he was in France on July 12 and unable to text when he was not in France and/or was able to text during that period.
It will also be considered whether Chapple-Hyam refused to supply his full and true telephone billings upon authorised request within a reasonable period of time by submitting incomplete and falsified records.
