The horse Noble Emperor has been banned and the trainer has received a fine
Barry Geraghty has been ruled out of the Punchestown festival with a 30-day ban for his ride on Noble Emperor at Limerick.
The horse has been banned for 60 days and trainer Tony Martin has been fined €3,000.
All the jockeys bar Barry Cash, who rode the winner Velocity Boy, were invited in by the officials to explain why they allowed the eventual victor so much of a lead.
Geraghty on the Tony Martin-trained runner finished strongly to come in second, but was still beaten by 11 lengths.
