Shannon Hope has been disqualified for five years and his veteran trainer father Lee for three years over the use of cobalt.

Shannon Hope was handed a harsher penalty than his 64-year-old father as the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board found he was more culpable.

Shannon Hope was responsible for the feeding and supplementation regime for the three horses found to have elevated cobalt levels, Judge Russell Lewis said.

“Lee Hope was aware that cobalt was being used but his role was inactive whereas Shannon played an active role and carries the burden of moral culpability for what occurred,” Judge Lewis said on Tuesday.

The RAD Board noted Lee Hope had a previously unblemished record over 50 years as a licensed person and Shannon over 25 years.

The Hopes faced a minimum three-year disqualification after being found guilty of intentionally administering cobalt to affect the performance of Windy Citi Bear, Best Suggestion and Choose in races last year.

Their legal counsel had asked for a fine for at least Lee Hope but the RAD Board said they had not proven special circumstances to mitigate the mandatory disqualification penalty.

The board ordered $50,000 in prize money won by the Hopes, which had been held by stewards since August pending the outcome of the case, be returned to them.

The Hopes and their legal team did not say if they will appeal the decision.

“We’ve just got to work that out,” Lee Hope said before declining to comment further.
