Currie given more time for submissions

Toowoomba trainer Ben Currie has been granted an extension on the time in which he has to make final submissions on two charges which involve allegations of using a jigger.

Currie’s lawyers went to the Supreme Court in Brisbane on Thursday afternoon seeking a judicial review of a stewards direction in regards to an inquiry which started last week.

Justice David Boddice made no formal order after the hearing, but the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission agreed to extend the time in which Currie’s lawyers could make final submissions. The deadline has now been extended from 4pm yesterday to 4pm on Monday
