THE owners Ron and Tim Dawson were yesterday warned off for 10 years by the Jockey Club. The father and son were found guilty of a string of offences by the Club's Disciplinary Committee relating to their racehorse investment venture scheme Classic Gold.

The Dawsons were described as "showing a blatant disregard for investors in Classic Gold," and damaging "the good name of racing" and were adjudged to have "deliberately attempted to mislead" the Jockey Club.

The trainer Ian Campbell, who houses five horses named in the Jockey Club inquiry at the Newmarket Stables owned by the Dawsons, was fined pounds 750 after admitting being in breach of rules relating to making entries.
