Currie’s Owners denied opportunity to transfer horses
Several of Currie’s owners have tried to transfer their horses to ensure their campaigns are not disrupted but they say they have been stymied with stewards using an Australian Racing rule which gives them the alleged right to deny transfers from a trainer facing charges. Currie’s solicitor Michael O’Connor confirmed he had written to stewards complaining they were wrongly applying the rule AR 23. He said the move was costing owners money and denying them a chance to race their horses. A spokesman for the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission told AAP it would assess the transfer of horses on a case-by-case basis. QRIC intends to continue with inquiries into 28 charges arising from a raid on Currie’s stables in early April last year. It will also pursue seven charges arising from other text messages and hold hearings into five alleged positive swabs.
TRAILED TUESDAY AT CAULFIELD – READY TO RACE
A super easy jump out at Caulfield on Tuesday, his first, this 2 year old by this Dream Ahead with Carion Maher, jumped and lead, just collared the last bit when fitness gave out to run second.
Heaps of improvement left in him as he gets more fitness but an absolute professional for his very first look at a jump out.
Shares still for sale but be quick, he had lots of admirers after his jumpout
