Last Updated: 30/07/14 7:05pm
Owner William Hinge has been warned off for seven years following a British Horseracing Authority disciplinary panel hearing.
Hinge, along with unlicensed individuals Keith Young and David Vivash, was found guilty of conspiracies to commit corrupt or fraudulent practices.
Hinge and Young were found to be the two central figures in an agreement to lay Hinge's horses in 17 races, with the owner laying his horses through Young and Vivash.
Hinge will be disqualified from July 31, 2014 until July 30, 2021 inclusive, with Young and Vivash subject to periods of exclusion as they are not bound by the BHA rules.
Young was handed the same period as Hinge with Vivash given a lesser spell of five years (July 31, 2014 to 30 July, 2019).
