The Ontario Racing Commission has released its ruling on its November 30 reinstatement hearing regarding owner-trainer-driver Rick Shakes.

Upon hearing the testimony of ORC Investigator Pamela Bray, reading the exhibits filed, and considering the submissions of Shakes and counsel for the administration, the commission ordered as follows:

  1. $500 fine (the stay that was granted to Shakes in accordance with Ruling Number SB 85/2010 was lifted for failure to successfully complete the Post-Violation Agreement);
  2. Prior to reinstatement of his licences, Shakes must enter into a Post-Violation Agreement for a period of two years;
  3. Shakes must pay the outstanding monies owing to the ORC in the amount of $834;
  4. Shakes must provide evidence to the ORC that he has completed the recommendations of a Substance Abuse Professional (“SAP”);
  5. Shakes must provide evidence to the ORC that he is attending a suitable after-care program.
