Denise “Sneezy” Foster is set to step in as a licensed trainer at Gordon Elliott’s Cullentra yard.
Elliott is banned from racing until September following an I-H-R-B hearing into a picture taken of the trainer sitting on a dead horse in 2019.
The British Horseracing Authority says all horses trained by Elliott must be transferred to another licensed trainer by Monday if they’re to be allowed to compete at Cheltenham or Aintree.
Gordon Elliott has been banned from racing for 12 months, with six months suspended.
The three-time Grand National winner was also fined €15,000 by the Irish Horse Regulatory Board (IHRB).
He said he would not appeal against the ban, adding that he was paying a “very heavy price” but would “serve my time and then build back better”. In a statement, he said: “I accept my situation and my sanction and I was dealt with fairly.”
Elliott’s yard employs more than 80 people at his Cullentra House stables.
