Former trainer Brendan Powell has been fined £2,500 and excluded from applying for a training licence for 12 months after being found guilty of breaching Rule (A) 30 by a BHA disciplinary panel.
In a one-to-one video hearing with His Honour Brian Barker C.B.E QC, Powell, currently assistant to Joseph O'Brien in Ireland, was found to have engaged in conduct considered to be prejudicial to the integrity, proper conduct or good reputation of horse racing in Great Britain.
Powell was found guilty of failing to notify the owner of Sweetlittlemystery in the autumn of 2017 that the mare was injured and would require surgery.
