Banned Rosehill trainer Sam Kavanagh may not be too far away from making a training come back.

This is because the Supreme Court a few days ago found him not liable to serve the sentences imposed by Racing NSW.

Earlier this week the court ordered Racing NSW to reimburse all of Kavanagh’s court costs.

He still has a caffeine infringement in the works but the original 9-year ban from training horses, looks all but over – 5 years earlier than Racing NSW planned.

And Kavanagh hopes to set up shop again in Sydney.

He wrote a rather telling and emotive letter to all his previous owners this week following the Supreme Court’s decision.

In it he quoted Rick Warren: “We are products of our past, but we don’t have to be prisoners of it.”

He went on to explain in the letter that it has been a long battle, “both mentally and financially but I plan to rebuild in NSW.

“And despite my exoneration on the cobalt administration charges, I accept that I did some other things for which I was also charged and I have served my time.

“I understand that I will have to work very hard for a second chance in this industry but in the past 4 years my passion for horses and the racing industry has never wavered.”

The Supreme Court found that Kavanagh inadvertently administered substances to his horses that contained cobalt and as such a nil penalty should be imposed.

“I said all along that I was deceived by Dr Brennan who acted culpably.

“The court also said words such as misconduct, cheat and serious and sustained wrong doing in relation to these charges, should be considered unsupportable.”

There is still a long way to go to convince the Racing Appeals tribunal to allow him a licence, but the young trainer said, “hopefully we can go back to the Racing Appeals Tribunal and my penalty can be reshuffled and hopefully we can look forward to getting re-licensed.”

Stay tuned.
