The Aquanita matter involves the decisions of the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary (RAD) Board of 8 May 2018 and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) of 13 September 2019 in which seven licensed and registered persons who worked for or had worked for Aquanita Racing were ultimately disqualified. Following the 30 January 2020 closure of the VCAT appeal window, Racing Victoria Stewards were required to give careful consideration under the Rules of Racing as to whether they would exercise their powers to disqualify any implicated horses. The Stewards published their preliminary decisions on 7 July 2020 having thoroughly analysed the available evidence.
This search tool lists the horses named in evidence adduced at the RAD Board and VCAT, and provides a search tool for other owners to see whether their horse ran against those horses. The search tool will assist owners of horses to determine whether their horse: has been preliminarily chosen for disqualification from its relevant race; will not be disqualified from its relevant race; appeared in evidence adduced, but was never able to be disqualified; or ran against any of the beforementioned horses and whether it is eligible for promotion.
