By that you mean 'skilled preparation' no doubt.

Give him another stay so he can 'harp up' a few more winners and maybe even add some more charges to the rap sheet.

QRIC finds Currie ban stands


Racing.com Staff@Racing

6:42pm

, (

Ben Currie has again had his training licence suspended following an internal review by the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) on Monday.

Currie was initially stood down by QRIC on February 18th after a show cause hearing into seven charges laid by Queensland stewards, including several charges relating to the alleged use of a ‘jigger’.

Among the evidence tendered by stewards were a series of text messages in which Currie made reference to the term ‘harped up’ which they alleged refers specifically to jigger usage.

But Currie was immediately granted a stay of proceedings by the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal which allowed him to continue training, during which time he has saddled up 16 winners from only 40 starters.

However QRIC’s internal review, conducted by Kane Ashby, found that the order to stand Currie down had enough merit to be reinstated.

“The reviewer acknowledges the seriousness of the charges, in particular the alleged use or instruction to use an electric or electronic apparatus to a horse which is designed to deliver an electric shock,” Ashby said.

“Notwithstanding, the reviewer acknowledges such charges are yet to be proven and the subject review is particular to the decision to suspend the Applicants trainers licence pursuant to Australian Rule of Racing 8 (z) pending the outcome of the aforementioned (7) charges.

“In carefully considering the evidence and taking into account the aforementioned factors, in particular the Applicants failure to provide any direct evidence or explanation for the term ‘harped up’ as noted in the facts relied upon, finds the continued participation of the Applicant poses an unacceptable risk to, prejudice or undermine the image, interests or integrity of racing.

“Accordingly, the reviewer is satisfied the decision to suspend the Applicants trainers licence pursuant to Australian Rule of Racing 8 (z) pending the outcome of the aforementioned (7) charges is proven.”

Currie is again expected to seek a stay of proceedings from QCAT.

The full review can be viewed here.

The saga continues. 40% strike rate. Make hay while the sun shines ( or while the appeals drag on). Farcical that this continues.
