Irish trainer Pat Hayes has been convicted of animal neglect after a horse was found starving on his land, reports extra.ie. He was handed a suspended three month sentence and ordered to pay €5,000 (about US$5,660) to a local animal charity, Kildare Animal Foundation.

The horse was found in February of 2020 by a passer-by, a source told extra.ie: “This horse was in shocking condition,” the source was quoted as saying.

Found with ribs protruding through the skin, a prolapsed penis, and cardiac disease, the horse had no food or water available. The horse had to be euthanized shortly after he was found.

Hayes, the brother of champion apprentice jockey Chris Hayes, has not had his license revoked as a result of the conviction, and is understood to still have horses on his land.
