The problem is that the Spring Carnival is on, and the protected species need to ride. A quick enquiry in late November will allow for a suspension over Xmas and back in time for Magic Millions

Stewards have set the date for the resumption of an inquiry into the Queensland Derby fall which resulted in high-profile jockey Corey Brown suffering serious injuries.

Queensland Racing Integrity Commission stewards confirmed the inquiry would resume on October 21 with four jockeys required to attend.

Brown, a dual Melbourne Cup-winning rider, was aboard Lord Arthur who fell at the 300m mark in the Derby at Eagle Farm on June 8.

He suffered injuries to his spine, ribs and lungs and will be out of the saddle for an indefinite period.

New Zealand horse Lord Arthur was euthanised.

An inquiry was opened on the day with evidence taken from several jockeys and then adjourned until a time when Brown was fit enough to attend.

Stewards will call Brown and fellow jockeys Tommy Berry, Matt McGillivray and Tim Clark to give evidence at the inquiry.

Chief steward Peter Chadwick said the priority had been to give Brown time and there had been problems getting all jockeys together.

Haha. Joke of the year. Holiday will start after MC week

That’s a certainty. Not unlike some of the trainers continuing with positive swans hanging over their heads for months and years. This is still Joh country

Stewards Report: Ben Ahrens – King Luther
Date: 5 September 2019
Panel: D Aurisch, N Boyle & L Hicks
Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Stewards today concluded an inquiry into a report from the analyst that the prohibited substance COBALT was detected in a urine sample taken from KING LUTHER at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club on 4 November 2018.
Documentary evidence was tabled from the Racing Science Centre (RSC) and the Racing Analytical Service Limited (RASL) along with evidence from licensed trainer Mr Ben Ahrens.
After considering all of the evidence, Mr Ahrens was issued with a charge pursuant to AR178 which states:
Subject to AR 178G, when any horse that has been brought to a racecourse for the purpose of engaging in a race and a prohibited substance is detected in any sample taken from it prior to or following its running in any race, the trainer and any other person who was in charge of such horse at any relevant time may be penalised
The specifics of the charge being that Ben Ahrens as the trainer of KING LUTHER brought that horse to the Sunshine Coast Turf Club on 4 November 2018 for the purpose of engaging in the Maiden Plate 1200m, and a pre-race urine sample taken was found to contain the prohibited substance COBALT above the excepted threshold.
Mr Ahrens pleaded guilty to the charge and made submissions in regard to mitigation regarding the reason for Cobalt being present in the sample.
In determining an appropriate penalty, Stewards acknowledged Mr Ahrens’s unblemished record over a long period. However, Stewards were also mindful of similar penalty precedents, the negative impact such breaches have on the image of racing and the need for a penalty to serve as an appropriate deterrent to ensure racing is conducted free of prohibited substances.
Mr Ahrens was advised that his trainer’s licence was suspended for a period of nine months. Under AR 283 (7) the Stewards deferred this suspension until midnight Monday 9 September 2019. Therefore, the 9 month suspension of Mr Ahrens’s licence to train will commence midnight 9 September 2019 and expire at midnight 9 June 2020.
KING LUTHER was disqualified from its 6th placing in the C, G & E Maiden Plate at the Sunshine Coast on 4 November 2018 and the placings were amended accordingly.

I wish they'd specify amounts found as the harness stewards do Disapprove

Surely they mean accepted rather than "........ above the excepted threshold." Confused


The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's too late to stop reading it.

Probably have another related business, such as stud or spelling Farm. Suspension affects the racing part of the business. Would not find that unacceptable if that was the case

McGillivray was suspended from October 30 to November 20 while Berry was outed from October 30 to November 13.

Both will appeal and seek an internal review which should ensure they will not miss any remaining meetings of the spring carnival.

From Racenet.com

Sidelined jockey Corey Brown says the handling of the inquiry into his Queensland Derby fall has left him dismayed.

The dual Melbourne Cup-winning jockey fell from Lord Arthur in the incident on June 8 and suffered a fractured T7 vertebrae, fractured ribs, a cracked sternum and punctured lung in an incident Brown described as the “darkest and loneliest moment” of his life.

Brown isn’t expected to make a comeback until late next year.

Queensland stewards reconvened the inquiry on Monday, more than four months after the fall.

In August chief steward Peter Chadwick told AAP, the extended delay was the result of logistics of getting all four jockeys together at the one time.

Matt McGillivray, who rode Grand Bouquet, was suspended for three weeks while Tommy Berry, Nobu’s jockey was suspended for two weeks after they were found guilty of careless riding charges.

A third jockey, Tim Clark, was also charged but after his submissions to stewards, was found not guilty.

Brown, who’s been riding for more than 20 years, expressed dismay at the way the entire process was handled by Queensland officials.

“In all my time as a jockey, I’ve never been involved in such a drawn-out matter – and why?” Brown said.

“They said in August they couldn’t get us all together at the one time but the first time I heard from stewards about it was only a month ago.

“Then I find out I have to pay for flights to go to Queensland to give evidence. Why did I have I have to pay – I was the one put on the deck?

“I’m not dirty on the other riders. No one goes out there and is deliberately careless, it was an accident and accidents happen in our sport which is so competitive.

“I just can’t believe how the whole thing was dragged out and ended up costing me money. I’m the one that can’t work in my chosen field at the moment.”

Brown said on leaving the hearing, the suspended riders were greeted by a representative of the Queensland jockeys’ association to complete the paperwork to appeal their suspensions.

Both will appeal and seek an internal review which should ensure they will not miss any remaining meetings of the spring carnival.

McGillivray was suspended from October 30 to November 20 while Berry was outed from October 30 to November 13.


This shows what a joke the Qld stewards are. This is borderline corruption at best, and illegal behaviour at worst. Sackable for mine.

Your correct SC but the sixth middie of Tooheys got my temper riled. Still think it was prearranged by stewards to hold a low key inquirey which didn’t affect Berrys spring carnival.

Hey SC, what about this one. Do you think anything will be done?
WELL KNOWN BRISBANE TRAINER SET TO BE CHARGED?

THE last thing we want to do is pre-empt what is bound to happen or steal the thunder of QRIC.

But the racing industry in Brisbane is agog with rumours (and it's more than that) involving a well known trainer in plenty of strife.

All we can tell you is that he is in hot water after some under age industry participants made serious allegations.

Story goes QRIC have taken evidence from the complainants and listened to some allegedly damning mobile phone messages.

Expect a QRIC Media Release or announcement of police charges against the trainer (who won't be named but the industry timmy drums are beating his name) over the holiday period.

The stewards up there are a joke anyway. You wouldn’t expect them to make any progress in any situation. There’s a huge story that will come out of there one day involving multiple trainers and a steward. Bigger then the cramps in Mildura.

Totally correct but I would hope that monitored sites like this would show the authorities that the average people know what’s happening and expect action. Guilty or innocent will be decided by the appropriate persons.

Most of us in the industry know of that story, the former steward who let rip on social media stood up for that, however, nothing will come of it...it's QLD after all.

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.

Nikolic did part of his apprenticeship in Queensland with the late trainer Bruce McLachlan and has some close ties to the state.

He has ridden with plenty of success in Queensland including the Stradbroke Handicap on Show A Heart (2002) and Thorn Park (2004).

AAP understands if granted a licence Nikolic would be based in North Queensland.

His application is likely to be decided by QRIC's Licensing department later this month.

NQ is crying out for a rider of his calibre , may be a asset not a liability, that is if he can leave behind any baggage with officialdom, some young riders up here may benefit.

Tom, would go close to being the biggest private owners in the state, so he may have some influence if it is true, he doesn't normally make bad calls.

Queensland Racing Integrity Commission stewards have scratched four horses from two meetings on Saturday after a surprise inspection of a Toowoomba stable.

QRIC’s Integrity Investigations Team raided Robert Smith’s stable on Saturday morning, allegedly finding him in possession of needles and syringes.

QRIC reported four horses set to run on Saturday were still on the property at the time of the inspection.

Stewards scratched Tocokoe and Madam Mahal from a race at the Gold Coast while Purple Gem and Boomtown Babe were scratched from a race at Nanango.

Queensland Racing Integrity Commissioner Ross Barnett released a statement advising Smith denied any breaches of the rules of racing.

“However, the Stewards acted swiftly to ensure the integrity of today’s races while investigations continue,” the release read.

A QRIC vet took swabs from all four horses as well as samples from the needles and syringes to be sent for analysis.

The QRIC investigation into the matter continues.

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's too late to stop reading it.

This is a fabulous industry, but the 'whatever it takes brigade' need to be rubbed out, consistently and efficiently, let's see what transpires with the latest Raceday fiasco.

Well said Bonjour. You should see what happens when they are not pre-race testing at some SEQ tracks. As soon as the trainers are aware, the milkshakers are straight onto it. Number is winners is relative to swab scrutiny.
