Racing NSW sends legal letter to Racing Vic claiming they had breached the rules of racing
Racing Australia is still no closer to holding its crucial board meeting as the impasse between the two biggest states remains no closer to being reconciled.
RA CEO Myles Foreman confirmed that there is no update on the situation and no date set for a board meeting to discuss significant issues.
Racing Australia’s February meeting was cancelled at the last minute after Racing NSW requested it not proceed, claiming Racing Victoria had breached the rules of racing after trialing whip limited racing.
And it appears that conflict is no closer to being settled.
Racing.com understands legal letters between the two states of been exchanged.
RNSW sent RV a legal letter early in the dispute, claiming they had breached the rules of racing.
The letter, Racing.com has been told, required a response by a certain date.
When a response was not received, further legal correspondence from RNSW followed.
RV would not confirm that the threat of court proceedings were contained in the correspondence.
Racing.com has previously reported in March that RNSW has called into question RVs future within Racing Australia as part of the ongoing tensions.
Neither Racing Victoria or RNSW would comment when contacted by Racing.com about resolving the matter.
RA chairman Greg Nichols also declined to comment.
But the standoff is starting to frustrate other states across the country, with little information on the path forward being provided but speculation of meetings proceeding without RNSW are premature.
Significant issues remain on the RA board table, including whip reform and the national pattern.
