The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) contacted the judge Mr David Smith and asked him to reconsider his original decision of a dead-heat for first place between EXTRA NOBLE and FIRE FIGHTING (IRE) in the £200 Free Bets At Betdaq Maiden Stakes at Kempton Park on 26th June 2013.
After further consideration, within the time period laid down in Rule (B)62.2 of the Rules of Racing, Mr Smith agreed that the result was incorrect and that EXTRA NOBLE should be placed first and FIRE FIGHTING (IRE) second. The BHA confirmed the revised placings.
The process was initiated following concerns expressed at the photo-finish result of the race.
The BHA is conducting an internal investigation into the circumstances which led to Mr Smith originally declaring the result of this race a dead-heat.
