Waterhouse, Bott to appeal conviction

Training partners Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott have lodged an appeal against their conviction and $5000 fine on a conduct charge.

The partnership was last week found guilty of conduct prejudicial to the image of racing after an inquiry into the substitution of horses listed to gallop in a televised trackwork session.

They admitted galloping Stampede, Fabrizio and Sort After at Randwick on April 4 in place of Serena Bay, Debonairly and English but pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The gallops on the course proper were restricted to horses competing at Randwick on April 8 and all horses wore racing colours.

No date has been set for the appeal.
