Info just rec'd and very timely..... Seems like a 78 year old horseman who has been racing on the circuit for over 50 years has been handed down a pretty tuff sentence from the IRB. Interestingly enough, this horseperson went in front of the Thoroughbred Stewards instead of following procedure and going in front of the Harness Stewards for whatever reason. The hearing was performed on Friday (3/24) with a decision made on Sunday (3/26) and posted on 'the board' on Monday (3/27).........

Hearing #064036 National Jockey Club at Hawthorne Racecourse

DRIVER/TRAINER/OWNER STEVEN LEFKOVITS PREVIOUSLY EXCLUDED FROM ALL PREMISES UNDER THE JURISDICTION OF THE ILLINOIS RACING BOARD IN STEWARDS' HARNESS RULING #062022, DATED FEBRUARY 1, 2006, REGARDING AN INCIDENT AT MAYWOD PARK ON JANUARY 26, 2006, APPEARED BEFORE THE STEWARDS FOR AN INQUIRY ON MARCH 24, 2006.

MR. STEVEN LEFKOVITS IS HEREBY SUSPENDED SIXTY (60) CALENDAR DAYS (FEBRUARY 1, 2006, THROUGH APRIL 1, 2006, INCLUSIVE) AND ASSESSED A CIVIL PENALTY OF FIVE HUNDRED ($500.00) DOLLARS FOR THREATENING AND VERBALLY ASSAULTING A RACING OFFICIAL ON JANUARY 26, 2006, IN THE MAYWOOD PARK RACING OFFICE.

FURTHERMORE, MR. LEFOVITS' LICENSE IS PLACED ON PROBATIONARY STATUS INDEFINATELY WITH THE RECOMMENDATION THAT ANY SIMILAR VIOLATIONS SHALL RESULT IN THE PERMANENT REVOCATION OF HIS LICENSE.

ILLINOIS RACING BOARD RULES 1320.10; 1320.20; 1306.110 (A) (F)

Stewards present and voting:

What is the normal penalty for threatening and verbally assaulting a racing official?
