Currie case adjourned
Queensland stewards have agreed to adjourn the hearing into seven of the remaining 21
charges against Ben Currie until after criminal matters against the banned Toowoomba
trainer are resolved. It means if Currie elects to go to trial on his criminal charges his racing
matters may not be finalised for more than a year. Police charged Currie last month with
alleged fraudulent behaviour over a period from November 2016 to March 2019 where
he allegedly sourced and administered unregulated horse supplements designed
to enhance race performance.
He is due to appear in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court on Monday. Already disqualified, Currie was to
face stewards on seven more charges today but his lawyers asked for the matter to be adjourned
pending the resolution of the criminal charge.
