CURRIE GUILTY ON 12 MORE CHARGES

Toowoomba trainer Ben Currie has been found guilty of a further 12 charges relating to race day administration and has been asked to make submissions on sentence.

Currie had already been disqualified for four years after being found guilty of two charges involving texts which were alleged to indicate jigger use, two weeks ago.

In a media release on Monday, the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission said Currie had been found guilty of five breaches of race day treatment without permission.

It said Currie, as the trainer was guilty of causing the administration of a medication to five horses on March 24, 2018, the same day they raced at Doomben and Gatton. He has also been found guilty of a further seven charges under the same rule for causing the administration of a medication to seven horses on April 7, 2018, the same day they were engaged to race at Toowoomba.

Stewards have asked Currie for submissions on his sentence on those charges.

Currie is expected to seek a further internal review of those 12 guilty findings.
