Nikolic applies for Queensland licence
The Queensland Racing Integrity Commission says careful consideration will be needed before determining an application by disqualified jockey Danny Nikolic for a riding licence in Queensland. QRIC Boss Ross Barnett confirmed Nikolic filed an application before Christmas. “As per usual procedure, careful consideration will be made before a decision is made,” he said.
Nikolic has not ridden since September 2012 after being banned following a running battle with Victorian stewards. He last applied for a licence in Queensland in 2015. It is understood that if granted a licence Nikolic would be based in North Queensland.
