CURRIE BARRED FROM HAVING NSW RUNNERS

CURRIE BARRED FROM HAVING NSW RUNNERS

Mark Currie, the father of banned trainer Ben, has also been barred from having runners in NSW after Racing NSW stewards issued a show cause notice yesterday.

Currie recently took over a large portion of the family training operation from his son after Ben was slapped with a seven and a half year disqualification in recent months for a long list of racing charges.

Ben Currie was arrested by police last month and charged with fraud before being released on bail. He was banned from having horses entered in NSW last August and stewards have moved to have the same restrictions in place for his father.

Earlier this year, Mark Currie pleaded guilty to two race day treatment charges, receiving a wholly suspended 12-month ban and a $7,500 fine.
