The Disciplinary Panel hearing involved former licensed jockey Andrew Heffernan and eight unlicensed individuals - Rocky Michael Chopra, James Coppinger, Paul Garner, Kelly Inglis, Yogesh Joshee, Douglas Shelley, Pravin Shingadia and Mark Wilson.
The hearing began on Monday, January 14 at the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) Head Office at 75 High Holborn, London.
Although 10 days had been set aside for the hearing, in the end it concluded in just four.
The BHA will make no comment regarding the hearing until the result and reasons are published and will provide no indication as to which of the defendants did or did not attend the hearing.
The allegations focus on horses being laid to lose on betting exchanges in races that took place between November 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011.
The charges relate to jockey Heffernan's riding of three horses – Wanchai Whisper, Gallantry and Silver Guest.
Wilson is accused of conspiring with other people to commit a corrupt or fraudulent practice as well as offering a bribe to Heffernan between the same period.
If found guilty, Wilson could face a ban from all involvement with racing for several years.
