It has been reported that former Kentucky Horse Racing Commission Chief Steward John Veitch has been hired on to be an entry clerk and patrol judge this fall at Keeneland Race Course.

An article by The Courier-Journal explains that the KHRC approved Veitch’s position at the Keeneland meet early last week.

Veitch, a Hall of Fame trainer, was fired from the KHRC in November of 2011 over the Life At Ten incident at the 2010 Breeders' Cup. After his firing, Veitch also served a suspension that was related to the incident.

“He has served his time; it was time for him to get a license and we wanted to give him an opportunity to come back into the racing world,” Rogers Beasley, vice president of Racing for Keeneland, was quoted as saying in The Courier-Journal report.
