Suspended trainer Fabrice Vermeulen | Scoop Dyga

Trainer Fabrice Vermeulen's appeal was denied by a judge in the administrative court of Amiens and his six-month suspension began on Thursday, the Jour de Galop reported on Friday evening. The trainer was attempting to deny the decision of the France Galop appeals committee, who handed down a six-month ban for alleged ownership record falsifications. As a result, Vermeulen's six-month suspension, of which three months was suspended for five years, started on Thursday, Apr. 28 and will last through Thursday, July 28, 2022. Final declarations from Vermeulen's yard will be invalidated. Pretty Tiger (Ire) (Sea The Moon {Ger}), a multiple group winner, has been transferred to Pia and Joakim Brandt and is due to start in the G1 Prix Ganay on Sunday.
